Upgrade of ADC with ADC SP1
I have a mixed 5.5 and 2003 exchange environment and am
currently trying to upgrade the 2003 ADC connector with
the version that ships with exchange 2003 SP1.

...ADC upgrade to SP1
I have upgraded my Exchange server to SP1. When I tried to do my first
cross-administrative group move, I got an error message that such moves are
disabled until ADC is upgraded to SP1. When I ran the setup from the
SP1\ADC\i386 directory, there is no "upgrade" option available, only
Add/remove, reinstall and uninstall. How do you upgrade the ADC to SP1?

How can I make ADC (Automated Data Collection) read from a csv file instead
of a device?
Actually our machines have a dedicated Oracle DB, which collects the
required info about every machine & Labor, how can I make ADC in GP read from
a file or db instead of reading from a device?
I understand ADC is used to synchronize the exchange 5.5 directory with
Active Directory. Does the exchange 5.5 need to be run on windows 2000
server? Can I still install ADC on Exchange 5.5 which is running on NT4
Thanks very much
You cannot install the ADC executables on NT 4. The 5.5 server will run on
NT 4 and that's fine.

If I uninstall ADC, do I need to reboot the server or restart any services?

I thought that before I was able to use the Exchange
System Manager to look and see the Active Directory
Connector, but now I can't find it. (I have an Exchange
5.5 and a Exchagne 2003 running together with a 2 way
ADC.) Where is the ADC located? I have been having some
directory sync problems, and I wanted to look at the ADC,
but now I can't find it. I wonder if it's disappeared?
It's me again...

Couple questions about using the ADC with exchange 5.5 - 2003.
I only have the exchange 5.5 up and running to make sure everything is
stable. I moved all the mailboxes & public folders over to the exchange 2003
server. Basically, Exchange 5.5 only has the connection to the internet to
route to the exchange 2003 server. Until I retire the 5.5 and move the
connector to the 2003 box - I have a couple questions:
1) I don't want the log files to accumulate on the 5.5 box - can I just turn
circular logging on for now on this box since it is server specific? Where
do the log files r...ADC issue

I am in the process of removing my last (and only) 5.5 server from my mixed

cannot find a way to remove the Config_CA. What do I do? Is it safe to go
ahead and remove the ADC service with a Config_CA still in there?

...Do I need ADC?
We currently have Exchange 5.5 running on a W2K member server in an NT 4
domain. We will soon be migrating to a W2K3 AD domain; we do not plan on
upgrading Exchange and will eventually move to another product. Will I need
ADC for the short time that we will have 5.5 in the 2003 AD domain? I've
read that it is necessary if you plan to upgrade, but as I said we won't
Not required. You will just have to use the exchange administrator on the
nt4 member server to add mailboxes and match it to the account in AD.

I have a New win2k DC on my network and I would like to use ADC so I can
create or delete mail accounts from Active directory. I have read a few
articles and it says to use the latest version of ADC but I cant seem to

Why not use the one from the E2003 SP1 download?

I worked on migrating our SBS Exchange 5.5 to our new SBS

I can migrate a users mailbox from 5.5 to 2003 this part is working, but
when i try and migrate the same users NT account using ADMT to AD, the
accoutn migrates over, but the account no longer has the users mailbox
associated with the account. I tell the ADMT to rename the account becaue the
users alreeayd has a disabled accoutn in AD be menas of the ADC.
Where am i going wrong here? Can i migrate the user accoutn with ADMT and
selct not to rename it? will doing this keep the mailbox association with the
newly migratged NT to AD account?

I have been trying to sponge up as much information as possible prior to

with regards to this upgrade and Exchange 5.5 on a Member server.
I was under the impression that once I upgrade my PDC to 2003
(w/nt4emulator=1) this change over would be transparent to the users (seeing
as all SIDS remain constant) and they would be able to access all resources
etc. on the network (including exchange mailboxes).
