    How do I Connect to my Exchange Management Console without rdping

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if someone could help,

    Over the school holidays we have had alot changes done on our network one of them being tighter security on servers, our Boss does not want any of us using rdp anymore which stops me from managering email accounts etc.

    Is there any way I could connect to the Exchange Management Console through my Desktop?


    Thank you

    Hi apearce,

    thank you for the download that has installed fine,

    but i have opened it and it says "MMC could not be created the snap-in"

    was wondering how I would connect it to my exchange server.

    very sorry for silly questions but im still a noobie to the IT world


    thank you

    Rights problem. Are you running as admins? If not use runas.

    does you account have permission to the exchange box?

    Try loggin onto your computer as the administrator and see if you can access exchange through the console.

    Hi I have tried on the "Administrator" user(switch I know works on the rdp) but sadly no joy on my desktop.

    so would that mean I am missing something on my desktop and not the user?


    thanks agian for all your help by the way

    do you think it has anything to do with having Windows 7?

    or would it be somthing to do with permissions on my desktop?

    Have you tried installing the console by running the Exchange install disk on your workstation and just selecting admin tools on the components list?
