Hi All,
We have been seeing a few small issues with exchange since we upgraded from 2003 4 months ago. The issues we have been seeing are public folder permission issues, although the permissions are correct when I review them, Calendar disconnects but when we restart outlook or delete the calendar and re-add it we can view them. I was doing research when I came across an article where they were seeing issues like these and found the old 2003 admin group wasnt cleaned out of AD. I have attached a screen shot of ASDI. If anyone could tell me how to proceed i would appreciate it.

-Dave

As far as I know, you should NOT delete those administrative groups as they're not only used for Exchange 2003. How many domain controllers and global catalogs are there?

I would check the replication health between them..it sounds more like a replication issue and when you see it disappear, its because it's accessing a GC that is outdated.

The above screen shot is where all the information of Exchange resides. The first Exchange container is Exchange 2000 and/or 2003 info resides and the 2nd one is Exchange 2007/2010.

If you have Exchange still running I advise strongly not to touch it or delete anything from CN=Exchange and below else you will have to reinstall Exchange all over again.

To your question. Have you recreate a new Outlook profile and delete the old one? if no, I would suggest to try that first.

Let us know what happen when creating a new outlook profile.

Well, sometimes you have to remove old Exchange Server references under Administrative Groups\Exchange\Servers. In here you could find references to your old Exchange 2003 servers that are no longger needed.

Normally this is something that you would find out during installation of Exchange 2010 but it's at least worth checking it out.

Remove Exchange 2003 from Active Directory to install Exchange 2010

Thats what I am thinking, When i did my upgrade to 2010 form 2003. Was anything from my legacy instll left behind? If it was couold it be causing any issues with permissions.

Dave

Have you decommissioned the legacy Exchange 2003 server and did you do it by the book? - Removing The Last Exchange 2003 Server From Exchange 2007 (Part 1)
