    I'm getting this message when opening a users account (as administrator) in exchange.

    Microsoft Exchange Administrator
    Access denied trying to contact Windows NT domain controller.
    Microsoft Exchange Administrator
    ID no: c1031029


    Recently ran some MS patches and update antivirus (eTrust) on this box. Also getting an "access denied" when trying to end processes (eTrust are the ones I tried).

    It's like I'm not getting authenticated as an administrator or something (I can start and stop services?). I'm looking at various security settings and stuff but nothing is looking like an obvious solution.

    Any help (like a guess) would be greatly appreciated.

    More info.. maybe somebody can help? This is Exchange 2000,
    You click ok on the msg box and the 'properties' will come up but, in the bottom right of the 'General' tab where the user name should be it says .\unknown account. This maybe a hint about what is going on?

    Resolved!! Another server on the domain had taken over (for some reason) as the domain controller. No DNS...nobody new each other.. Its a wonder anything worked. Now to get DNS acting right again.

    This was a remote server that had problems taking a new admin password a while back. We were going thru the problem log looking for something that had happened and started looking at it. If I learn anymore I'll post again.
