Setup – 2 x windows 2003 SP1 and fully patched. Both servers running AD and DHCP and and GC’s
Created a svc_xch account with domain admins and enterprise admins membership
Installed exchange 2003 on one server under the administrator account and specified the svc_xch account as the administrator account when installed. After installed successfully all services start. When I tried to change the service accounts from localsystem to the svc_xch all of the services apart from Microsoft Exchange Management will not start. When attempting to start the system attendant I get the following error:
“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.”
When I change it back to localsystem everything works fine. When checking the delegation of the administration group both administrator and svc_xch have full access
Anyone any ideas??
P.s. This is a test network :)
