I have a setup which consists of this:

2 x Exchange 2007 SP1 CCR server installed on Windows 2008
1 x Exchange 2007 SP1 CAS server installed on Windows 2008
2 x Windows 2003 SP2 domain controllers where the 32 bit Exchange Management Tools is installed.

When I start the EMC from my Windows 2003 servers I get the below error message:

——————————————————–
Microsoft Exchange Error

The following error(s) were reported while loading topology information:

Solution:
I made a support case with Microsoft and after long time they confirmed that its bug in the communication between Windows 2003 and Windows 2008, and it seems to be related to IIS. The developers is working on fix for it.
I’ll keep you updated when i hear something new about this issue.

  • On XP/2003 box set following thing.

    Run -> dcomcnfg -> Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> Properties ->
    Change “Default Impersonation Level” from Identify to Impersonate.

    Open EMC, this time it should open without error ;)
