Admin Exchange 5.5 via MMC on XP Pro...

By LeonidasRomero ·
Good Morning,

I am currently running Exchange 5.5. on an NT 4.0 SP6A Server box. I am now implemented XP Pro across the domain, with an upgrade to 2003 Server later in the year.

The question I have is, using the MMC on my XP Pro box, can I administer my Exchange 5.5 Server? I have Computer Management and Event viewer working through MMC, but would love to be able to admin my Exchange server via MMC too.

Thanks,

Leo

The Exchange 5.5 tools are not MMC based. You can get a product from NetIQ, which will allow you to manage Exchange 5.5 from a quasi-MMC.

Would rather not purchase a third party product to administer the 5.5 system.

Thank you for the information!

Not possible, since the Exchange System Manager is not an MMC application. However, you do know, I hope, that you can install the Exchange 5.5 System Manager on your XP workstation to manage the server from there.

Hope this helps!

Acceptable answer, but where can I get the 5.5 Sys Mgr? Please post the answer if you can. Then I can award the points

The Exchange 5.5 System Manager is installed from the Exchange 5.5 CD. Simply run the install as if you were installing Exchange 5.5 but select ONLY the System Manager to be installed. You will also need to install all the same service packs that you are running on your Exchange 5.5 server - again just run the install as if you were running it on the server and it will install only those components required for the System Manager.

Hope this helps!
