The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the Active Directory® directory service to determine whether the Exchange Server environment is configured as a Hosted Exchange environment. If the Exchange Server environment is a Hosted Exchange environment, the Exchange Server Analyzer queries Active Directory to determine whether the Authenticated Users group is part of the Pre-Windows® 2000 Compatible Access group in the domain.

If the Authenticated Users group is a member of the Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access group, the Exchange Server Analyzer displays a warning. This is not a recommended configuration for a Hosted Exchange solution.

To fix this warning, remove Authenticated Users from the Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access security group
  1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. Expand the domain node and then click the Builtin container.

  3. Right-click the Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access security group and select Properties.

  4. Click the Members tab.

  5. Select Authenticated Users.

  6. Click Remove.

  7. Click OK.
