How to solve MSExchange ADaccess error in eventviewer (2937)?

    Question

  • Hello,

    How can I solve the following error in the eventviewer of my Exchange 2010 SP1 server?:

    Process w3wp.exe () (PID=4172). Object [CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=chasse,DC=nl]. Property [GlobalAddressList] is set to value [chasse.nl/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Default Global Address List

    DEL:5dc81567-e641-493d-830b-13abd0045e50], it is pointing to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory. This property should be fixed as soon as possible.

    Thnx Remco

  • Hi Remco,

    Which attribute are you trying to change? It won't be the objectGUID. I would check the GlobalAddressList attribute and change it so is set to the new GAL's DN. You can get this using the following cmdlet:

    Get-GlobalAddressList "Default Global Address List" | fl DistinguishedName

  • Hi Remco,

    This sounds like a similar issue that can affect Recipients. You will see a post on Jeff Guillet's blog proposing a solution here . In the same vain, can you see if this command corrects the issue.

    Update-GlobalAddressList "Default Global Address List"

  • Hi steve,

    I tried the solution you provided and rebooted the server to test it, I get similar errors:

    Process MSExchangeTransportLogSearch.exe () (PID=3244). Object [CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=chasse,DC=nl]. Property [GlobalAddressList] is set to value [chasse.nl/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Default Global Address List

    DEL:5dc81567-e641-493d-830b-13abd0045e50], it is pointing to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory. This property should be fixed as soon as possible.

    Process edgetransport.exe () (PID=3444). Object [CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=chasse,DC=nl]. Property [GlobalAddressList] is set to value [chasse.nl/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Default Global Address List

    DEL:5dc81567-e641-493d-830b-13abd0045e50], it is pointing to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory. This property should be fixed as soon as possible.

     

    A little while ago I deleted the GAL and recreated it, I think it has to do something with this.....

  • Hi Remco,

    If you do

    Get-GlobalAddressList "Default Global Address List" | fl guid

    Does it show the same guid as above?

  • Hi Steve,

    It shows a different guid for the default GAL, can I change this somehow?

  • Hello Xiu,

    When executing the solution provide by Andy (Can you Browse to that object (CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=chasse,DC=nl) via adsiedit and set the property to the correct, valid GAL?) in the above post I'm getting the error:

    The atribute cannot be modified because it is owned by the system.....

    So I still have no solution for this....

  • Hi Steve,

    The problem is solved.... It turned out that in the GlobalAddressList attribute of CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=chasse,DC=nl there were two entries to the default GAL, I removed the bad one and restarted the server and everything was ok!

    Thnx
