When you use the Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer (ExBPA) to schedule a scan on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP2 server, you receive the following error message:

Runs cannot be scheduled because you have not entered security credentials that are requires for the run.


This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2007 SP2 performs additional checks on the Exchange Server 2007 Edge server role when you use ExBPA. However, the check performed is incorrect.


To resolve this problem, install the following update rollup:
979784 Description of Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 2


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
