Hi We are testing our exchange backup software with different OS and Exchange.We have Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 as well as Windows 2008.We are using MSDN CD's for testing.In all the Windows 2008 Exchange 2007 machines, when we open the Exchange MMC under server configuration ---> mailbox, we cannot able to see all storage groups and its database path.It shows only "there are no items to show in this view".I have checked all the view properties,every thing seems to be ok.Also this happens after some days,ie after installtion it shows correctly and we can able to mount/dismount the databases.After some successful backup and restore of databases,this problem happens. We have Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 64 bit servers,in this scenario no problem happens and can able to view always.This problem happens only on Windows 2008 os machines.Is there any settings (Commandlet) available to show the storage groups?. Is any settings will be there is change to work? Cheers Gopal

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know of a specific setting, but there are a couple of things that you should check. First, verify that the server is pointed to the correct DNS server, and that it is able to communicate with your global catalog server. You might also run some latency tests on the server. I have seen situations in which the console appears to be blank, and then later on the information just shows up. Slow server performance, low bandwidth, or even a bad network cable that produces an excessive number of retries can cause this problem.

    This sounds like a compatibility issue with Server 2008. There may be a patch out, but I think you should check with Microsoft.
