Found the answer to this problem, just wanted to let you all know.

My problem was that I was using an administrative account created for me,
not the main domain admin account. My personal administrator account did not
have Exchange Full Administrator rights for the Exchange Organization. You
have to configure that from within the Exchange Administrator program.;en-us;811816

Not my exact error message, but same cause and same solution.

Old machine name is not showing in AD anywhere. I renamed the machine before
joining it to the domain (was a fresh install on new hardware).

Not sure how I should have things set in the DNS properties under TCP/IP. I
have "Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes" selected, and
it's sub-item "Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix" is checked.
I *don't* have anything in the "DNS suffix for this connection" box, but
then none of my servers (nor workstations) do anywhere on my network.

The configuration under System Properties | Network Identification (Computer
Name) can't be changed (or even accessed) now that the machine is a domain

Searched the registry and the old name wasn't found anywhere.

Thanks for the help.

Is the old machine name still in AD anywhere?

Do you have the server properties correct? (Domain configured in TCP/IP
Properites DNS. and My Computer | Properites | Computer Name?)

Have you searched the registry to see if the old name still shows up
