- Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Standard Edition
This article was previously published under Q248725
If you try to install Exchange Server 5.5 on a computer running Windows 2000 Server and the Exchange Server service account is not part of the Domain Administrator group, the installation does not work. All of the registry entries are present and the Exchsrvr folder is populated.
This problem can occur if the Exchange Server service account does not have the required permissions.
To resolve this problem, add the Exchange Server service account to the local Power Users group or local Administrators group on a member server. On a domain controller, add the account to the built-in Administrators group.
The minimum rights that are necessary for the Exchange Server service account on a member server are Power Users rights. However, if installation problems occur when you use the local Power Users group, add the Exchange Server service account to the local Administrators group. Also, if the local Power Users group is not available due to the type of installation that was performed, use the local Administrators group.
