Exchange 2010 A server side administrative operation failed: Error 0x5 <Access Denied> RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In a single forest 2 different domains (abc.com , xyz.com), abc.com  contains schema master and domain naming master. XYZ contains other AD roles. I plan to deploy exchange 2010 servers on XYZ.com. I ran prepare schema ,prepare AD  and prepare allDomain in ABC.com

    I moved the schema master to XYZ.com, do i again run prepare AD ? 

    I installed exchange 2010 servers but i am unable to check the health and database copy status between 2 exchange servers, i got error A server side administrative operation failed: Error 0x5 <Access Denied>

    Any suggestions?

  • Yes, I believe that you will need to run prepare AD again. This is due to the fact that you moved the schema master.

    See the following document:


    The computer where you'll run the command needs to be in the same Active Directory domain and site as the schema master. It'll also need to contact all of the domains in the forest on TCP port 389.

    Please update on your status.
