Exchange Services - 2.Jan.2006 5:19:22 AM

I'm going through an Exchange exercise from a Microsoft press book "Implementing and Managing Microsoft Exchange Server 2003" by Ian McLean and it's asking me to change the logon account of the various Exchange services (System Attendant, Information Store, etc.) from the local machine to a domain user account with Enterpirse Admins, Domain Admins and Schema Admins, group rights.

However once, I restart these services with the new account instead of the local account, it no longer works. After some research I've found this "http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;239762&Product=exch2003"

So my question is, has anyone ever been able to start Exchange services under a different accout other then the local account?

If not then this is a crappy book that Microsoft put out, I've even check their corrections page for this and it never mentions this problem "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903272/en-us"

Can someone recommend a good Exchange book?

Yes, this works fine. Confirm that the user is in all of the listed groups. Look at the event log and see what errors you get.

That book is great.

all 9 of the Exchange services log in as the domain account. This domain account is a member of "enterprise admins", "domain admins" and "schema admins".

I get the follow messages,

1. Microsoft Exchange Information Store service -- fails:

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

It depends upon on EXIFS and Microsoft Exchange System Attendant.

2. Microsoft Exchange Management -- okay.


3. Microsoft Exchange MTA Stacks -- fails:

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

It depends upon on Microsoft Exchange System Attendant.

4. When I try to start the Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine service,
it fails with:

Error 1079: The account specified for this service is different
from the account specified for other services running in the
same process.

5. Microsoft Exchange System Attendant -- fails:

The Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service on Local
Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop
automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the
Performance Logs and Alerts service.


After doing some googling, I've noticed that others experienced the same problem and then came across, "http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;239762&Product=exch2003". After that, I thought that Microsoft turned that off on purpose to make it more secure.

I'll look for the event log messages and post them when I go home. Can't seem to figure this one out.

The errors that I get in the Event log is, Error (Event ID 1005) "Unexpected error The logon attempt failed ID no:8009030c Microsoft Exchange System Attendant occurred."

And yes, I made sure that the domain account has Enterprise, Domain and Schema Admin access. And yes, I made sure that the username and password is spelled correctly.

I can't understand why this happens and I'm sure that I'm not the only one with this problem.

Dunno if anyone else mentioned it but one thing I would try is to go back into the details of those services and re-type the password for the domain account.  Maybe it's something as simple as that?

Did you give the account the "logon as a service" right? I can't swear these are the Microsoft-approved steps. But try this:
  • Logon to your Exchange server as a domain admin. Click "Start" --> "Programs" --> "Administrative Tools" --> "Local Security Policy".
  • Open "Security Settings" --> "Local Policies" --> "User Rights Assignment" and you should find a policy called "Log on as a service".
  • Add the domain account there.
  • Just for the giggles and grins, you also might want to add it to "Log on as a batch job" and "Act as part of the operating system".

Hope that helped!

Hello:

I have the same problem (trying the same exercise), and I have checked all mentioned before (local security police and group membership). Does anyone have found a solution?

Thanks in advance.

Same book; same problem.  I did not find a resolution for this, and I too have confirmed that the service account is in the proper groups, I have painstakingly verified that I'm typing in the right password and the account is listed in the local security policy settings with the "Log on as a Service" rights.  I am therefore giving up; I just have better things to worry about.  Good luck to anyone else who continues to be plagued by this situation and let us know if you find the secret resolution.

Had the same issue with the MSPress 70-284 Book

Downloaded:
Microsoft Exchange Server Analyzer Tool
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/downloads/2003/analyzers/overview.mspx

Ran an analysis on the configuration and got a warning in the generated report

Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service is not running as "LocalSystem"

From the Help file linked to the error:

If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds that the Exchange System Attendant service is running under any account other than the LocalSystem (SYSTEM) account on an Exchange server running Exchange 2000 Server, Exchange Server 2003, or Exchange Server 2007, the Exchange Server Analyzer displays an error.

This error indicates that the System Attendant service is not running in a supported configuration. If you run the System Attendant service under any other account, you will cause permission and access errors.

To resolve this error, you must configure the Exchange System Attendant service to start up under the LocalSystem (SYSTEM) account.

For more information about running Exchange services under the LocalSystem account, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 239762, "Exchange Services Run Under LocalSystem"
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=239762

Not sure so why the book appears to be  "wrong"  in this regard as it seems to have been a feature since Exchange 2003 was launched.
