Default Adding another exchange server

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

Trying to add in another exchange server (my company bought one that had its own exchange server and i want to add it to our blackberry environment). Currently i have 2 exchange servers running with BES that are working perfectly.

However this new exchange server is also a domain controller, and ive found it a little different to setting up a standard member server.

Ive gone through this page BlackBerry Search Results
and thats all fine. Because you cant make the besadmin user a local administrator ive gone into the domain policy security settings/local policies/user rights assignment and allowed the besadmin service to logon as a service and also to logon locally, however users on this exchange server still will not activate.

Can anyone please suggest something i may have missed? Any help would be most appreciated!

Have you checked to ensure that the blackberry user has the right AD permissions on that exchange server? (receive/send as and what not)

yup it sure does, the new server is on the same domain, and in the exchange systems manager it has been delegated control of the administrative group, and also is in the security tab of the properties section of the actual exchange server.

Are you setting the logon as a service in "Domain Security Policy" or "Domain Controller Security Policy"? It should be in the domain controller policy.

Also you can set your bes admin account to have local admin rights in AD by setting it to Administrator/Builtin.

Hope this helps...

Yes, there is. The permission requirements are different as listed in the KB article we both referenced
