comment What GPO rights are required for an exchange service account?
The server has a GPO applied to it that's built to accomodate the local services required for a single exchange server. So everything appears to be working but services related to advanced features like clustering (in this case the RPC Client Access Service which I beleive is a feature of the CAS Array role). So I'm hoping that by identifying which GPO User Rights need the "Network Service" account added to them on the GPO I can restore priviliges to the required account.

Ok. So what rights is the 'Network Service' account running with? Reason I ask is that client has an altered version of default domain policy, which seems to be missing rights required for exchange rpc client access service. As a result, service "Started then stopped". Changing service to run as domain administrator allows service to start. So If these services need to run as local entities, then I' trying to identify rights needed in Default Domain Policy to allow service to run as 'Network Service'...

grant rights to a domain service account I'm going to create that will be used to run those services (if possible) (i.e. 'Log On As A Service', 'Create Token Objects', etc.)

I also nitced that when I disabled the BIOS in the SATA controller (with the drives disconnected to get past the hang), I got past the hang and I could now get back into the config screen with the drives plugged into the card. So either the array is corrupted, or the bios is

The only problem is that I can't install drivers when the array won't boot.

Applying firmware to the card did not resolve the issue. I found some documentatoin from Dell "Firmware and Driver – A mismatch of firmware and driver could result in random controller lockups, hangs or BSODs. The system should be at the current approved level. The latest firmware and driver versions can be found on support.dell.com. When performing a firmware and a driver update, it is recommended that the driver be updated before the firmware. The driver is always backward compatible with older firmware. A new firmware with an older driver will usually result in abnormal behavior."

So binding the array information to a new card worked, but it didn't resolve the problem. I'm looking into the default boot device, and updating the firmware on the poweredge. Problem is that I can't get into setup when the card is in because it hangs before entering setup (just after RAID card POST).

So I assume accepting new config binds the array information on the new card?
