Re: First Administrative Group

I also tested this out by loading Outlook 2007 directly on the Exchange 07 server. Administrator can't even connect to his own mailbox using Control Panel >> Mail. However, OWA works great. It seems like there is some kind of translation process that is going on, where it isn't resolving the mailbox name properly.

Yes, the former Exchange 2003 server has been removed.
Really, that's when I noticed new clients couldn't be connected.

By "path", I'm talking about the reg keys Windows creates in:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\
Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook

When I ran the mailbox move process using the Exchange 2007 server,
existing users' Outlook Profiles were all updated. But for some reason,
new clients aren't getting something right.

Also, using adsiedit, "First Administrative Group" is gone from
Configuration\CN=Services\CN=Microsoft Exchange\
CN=Corporate\CN=Administrative Groups

But, Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT) is there.

I upgraded an Exchange 2003 system to Exchange 2007. Everything went smooth.
When I moved the mailboxes to the new server, the clients were automatically
pointed at the new client access server. Though existing workstations work
great, new clients attempting to join via Outlook fail. I think I've
pinpointed the challenge, but I'm not quite sure how to go about fixing it.

When the Outlook profile is created, it creates the "path" to the Exchange
mailbox. On my working clients, the path looks like this:
/o=Corporate/ou=Exchange Administrative Group

On non-working clients (clients newly added), that same string will look
/o=Corporate/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=username

It seems that the "First Administrative Group" is left over from the old
Exchange 2003 system, and the "Exchange Administrative Group
(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)" is the new Exchange 2007 system. What can I do to get the
system pointing clients at the right "path"?

Thanks, PC

Not sure what you mean by path, but did you remove the Exchange 2003
server already?
Does the First ADminstrative group still exist in AD? ( you can check
via adsiedit under the configuration container.
