Can I use Exchange 2010 Management Tool to manage Exchange 2007 server?


  • Hi, guys

        Now I have a Exchang 2007 server installed on windows server 2003 R2(it needs to update in the future), and I installed a Exchange 2010 Management Tool on another Windows Server 2008 R2, I want to use this Exchange 2010 Management Tool to connect and manage my Exchange 2007, because I will update or install a new Exchange 2010 server on Windows Server 2008 R2. But now I get error when I open the 2010 management tool after installing. When I open Exchange 2010 Management Console, the error is:

        Initialization failed.

        Get the following error when searching internal deployed Exchange server:
    No CAS or other server are available in the current site or adjacent sites. Cannot connect to Remote Powershell in a Management Tools only box and no cmdlets are provided by Remote Powershell. It is running the command "Discover-ExchangeServer -UseWIA $true -SuppressError $true".

    When I open Exchange Management Shell and type the Exchange Server's FQDN, the error is:

     Connecting to remote server failed with following message: Client of WinRM service received from WS-managment code HTTP 403.

        How can I solve this problem for connecting successfully? thank you very much.
