Hello all, new to the forums.
(And relatively new to BES administration)
We've recently upgraded our server to 4.0 and have no issues thus far (haven't added the HF's yet)
I've been trying to add the MMC Snap-In to my XP box, so i can administer the bes without remoting into the actual bes server.
When I add the snap in, it prompts for a mapi profile, and i use my default - then it asks me to auth to the mail server, and i authenticate with the bes service account email.
I then get an error: "Unable to get the IT policy list from database. Please ensure that the database is available, and the SQLServer is running"
Then it will list our bes server in the console, but it's yellow - no stats or anything, when i try to look at server stats it says it cant connect to the admin mailbox or i dont have permission, which i do.
The database is available, and the SQL server is running fine. I can connect to the SQLserver and the bes database through my console. Any help would be appreciated.
Running Bes 4.0 (No HF's) For exchange, MSSQL 7 in a mixed mode 5.5/2003 environment.
