Newly installed Exchange 2010 box (technically, a partially installed box, as this error is preventing me from completing the install).

When I launch EMC or the Management Powershell, I get this error:

VERBOSE: Connecting to myserver.mydomain.internal
[myserver.mydomain.internal] 
Processing data from remote server failed with the following error message: 
The user "mydomain\administrator" isn't assigned to any management roles. 
For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
Failed to connect to any Exchange Server in the current site.

Thing is..

The logged in administrator account (confirmed using 'whoami') is a member of the following groups:

Administrators
Delegated Setup
Discovery Management
Domain Admins
Domain Users
Enterprise Admins
Exchange Organization Administrators
GPO Creator Owners
Organization Management
Schema Admins
Server Management

Any ideas? how can I get past this?

@Richard, chances are a different user account was used for the schema preparations during the pre-install tasks as to those that were used to install Exchange.

Ensure your account is a member of the Organization Management group, and see if the error is resolved for you.

Thanks!

  • The Organization Management group can be found in Active Directory Users and Computers under the "Microsoft Exchange Security Groups" folder in the domain. – Wolfgang Aug 11 '17 at 23:19
  • This worked for me. I was a domain admin and still not working. Adding to the Organization management group worked instantly :-) Thanks – jcrawfor74 Jul 26 '18 at 11:16

When our Exchange 2010 server was installed we used a particular domain account.

For administration we use different User accounts.

Each user that will be administering the exchange server must be a member of "Organization Management" this is all you should need to ensure the user is a member of.

I wanted to claify this as the simplest fix also posted by David George
