The Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program provides a graphical environment for administering the services and components of your messaging topology. You can use the Administrator program to administer any server that you have remote procedure call (RPC) connectivity with.
The Administrator program (Admin.exe) enables you to view and manipulate the structure of your organization and perform a variety of administrative tasks. To run the Administrator program, you need Administrator permissions for the site where the server is located.
Unless you have granted another user account permission to administer Microsoft Exchange Server, the only accounts with Administrator permissions on a Microsoft Exchange Server computer are the account that was logged on during Setup and the service account provided during Setup. You can add other users with Administrator permissions by using the Administrator program.
Tip You can install the Administrator program on more than one Windows NT Server or Windows NT workstation computer within a site. If one of the computers is not available, the other can be used to administer the site and perform troubleshooting.
You can connect to and modify objects on multiple servers. Each server appears in its own window.
