    Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I really like your posts. I have a question for you. After following through your instruction I was trying to connect to our Exchange 2010 version 14.3.123.4 ( I assumed SP3). It failed with this error message. “Unable to connect to version 14.3.123.4 server using version 14.1.438.0 due to potential compatibility problems. To resolve this issue remove this sub-node from the console tree and re-add it specifying a server with a matching version.” Is my RSAT version is not matching the Exchange server version? Where can I get RSAT version that compatible with the server version?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Great post, however when loading the exchange management console I receive an Initialization Failed. The Operation couldn’t be completed because a change occured in the remote forest.

    Any ideas?

    • Post the error screenshot in the comment. Also try restarting server once during the maintenance. A reboot should fix the issue.

      • Andrew

        I’ll give the reboot of a server a go, I will let you know if that makes any difference.

      • Andrew

        Worked out what the issue is, I had the wrong version installed on the client desktop.

        btw – viewed other posts of yours, they are detailed extremely well, book marked your website!

        • Thank you Andrew, you comment will surely help other people..

    Query the user must have permissions in the domain and the Exchange tool to install and manage the exchange from your computer.
