Exchange Admin from workstation

By chialoon ·
Ok, I've insteall the Exchange Administrator program on my workstation, but I can't access the Exchange server due to lack of permission to do so.

How would I set up my account so that I have sufficient permission to run ExAdm from my workstation?

Thanks,

Bob

On the exchange server you need to open exchange administrator, click the servers tab from the file menu click properties and then give yourself (The user account you are logging on to the workstation with) appropriate permissions

(Exchange is pretty fussy about the right permissions at the right node)

Make yourself a domain admin in the domain conataining the Exchange servers.

This didn't work. I was already the domain admin.

The best bet is to create an 'exchange admin' group, assign the permissions to that and then make yourself a member of that group.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is not quite the answer to my question, but a good point nevertheless.

Another solution would be to use the su.exe (superuser) command from the NT4 resource kit. If you are familar with Win2K it is the "RunAs" command.
You can create a command line to run ExAdmin program as the "Real" exchange admin even while loggedinto the workstation as your normal user id. I do suggest going this route, because then once you leave your current position (if you do) the next admin wouldnt have to go through and undo all the permissions you just did.
Plus it leaves your account normal user account more protected from the elevated status of Exchange Admin.

Excellent suggestion. I used this solution based on the ease of future maintenance.
