Discovery Fails for Spotlight on Messaging giving the following message:
Active Directory object is missing. DN=cn=configuration,dc=ad,dc=quest,dc=com, filter=(objectClass=msExchAdminGroup), scope=Subtree.
Verify that the Spotlight Diagnostic Test Engine service account has sufficient rights to browse the Exchange container in Active Directory.
Ensure the Spotlight on Messaging Service Account is created in the Root domain instead of a Child Domain which may host the Exchange Org and Spotlight server.
The Service account need to be a Member of View-Only Exchange Administrators group in order to have:
- Read access to Active Directory to enumerate Exchange objects (organization / administrative groups / routing groups / servers) in the configuration partition, and computer.
In a Exchange 2003 / 2010 environment add the service account to the Exchange Organization Management Group.
