MSExchangeSA 9186

This is a good one.  Both my Exchange 2003 and 2007 server are showing this event in the application event log

Exchange 2003 shows this:

Event Type:    Warning

The current members of the group are ‘CN=E2k3mbx,OU=Servers,OU=MAC,DC=gbl,DC=MyDomain,DC=net; ‘.
 

Exchange 2007 shows this: 

Event Type:    Warning
Event Source:    MSExchangeSA
Event Category:    General
Event ID:    9186
Description:
Microsoft Exchange System Attendant has detected that the local computer is not a member of group ‘/dc=net/dc=MyDomain/dc=gbl/ou=Microsoft Exchange Security Groups/cn=Exchange Servers’. System Attendant is going to add the local computer into the group.

The current members of the group are ‘CN=Exchange Install Domain Servers,CN=Microsoft Exchange System Objects,DC=gbl,DC=MyDomain,DC=net; CN=mbx01,OU=Servers,OU=MAC,DC=gbl,DC=MyDomain,DC=net; ‘.

The bloody AD guys moved the exchange servers in to a new OU (MAC)

Found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/271335 and restart of the MSExchangeSA fixed it all.  Interesting that the SA caches the distinguished name of the local computer.
