I have 5 Exchange 5.5 (SP 4) Servers on Windows NT 4.0 (SP 6a).  Two are
member servers, two are BDCs.

I am using ARCserve 2000 Enterprise Edition with the Exchange Agents.  I
created a domain account called dbagent to use as my back up acount.  I
intialized the mailbox for that account.

On the two memeber servers, I created a local account also called
dbagent and used the same password.  I did all of the required account
settings for both the local and domain accounts per CAs instructions.
(Log on Locally, Act as part of the Operating System...)

I can back up the Information Store and Directory on all 4 servers
without a problem.  However, when I go to view the mailboxes of the
users, only the user mailboxes on the member server appear.  If you
mailbox is located on a BDC, it doesn't show up on the list.

Suggestions?  I just changed positions and this is the first place I
have been with Exchange on a domain controller and have never
encountered this problem.

Thanks in advance.
