Problem with AD group after migrating from exchange 2010to 2013

    Question

  • Hi,

    just managed to migrate from Exchange 2010 to 2013 and here is how my environment look like:

    Exchange 2010:

    Exchange: CAS,HUB and Unified messaging

    DAG1:Mailbox

    DAG02:Mailbox


    Exchange 2013:

    Exchange: CAS

    DAG01:Mailbox

    DAG02:Mailbox

    So far everything looks fine.Manage to move all mailboxes to the new 2013 environment.OWA,OAB,Outlook,Autodiscover ..yes everything works so far in the new enviroment.

    My problem is when i access ECP in 2013 enviroment,i cannot see all Distribution,security or Access groups.For now i have 13 total in AD,but in ECP i can only see 7.Its mixed of Global and security groups and most are created in AD.First i thought it was delay in AD replication,but now it has been 3 days and still only 7/13 groups are visible.The issue I have with this is when i want to add one of these groups to grant full access or full send as permission in a user mailbox or shared mailbox,i cannot see these groups!

    Another problem is when i create Room mailbox from AD,when i go in ECP of 2013 environment i cannot add existing room mailbox.In Exchange 2010 this was possible,but i can do this for existing user in 2013 environment.

    Is this a bug or something im missing out?I could probably search on how to do it from EMC,but why can i not do it from ECP?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I don't think Global group will appear in ECP , please make sure all group must be Universal  scoped.

    How will you create Room mailbox from  AD ?

    This needs to be create in ECP or EMS .

    What do mean by " when i go in ECP of 2013 environment i cannot add existing room mailbox "

    if do you have already created mailbox (user mailbox) for Room mailbox purpose , then you can covert user mailbox to Room by below cmdlet :

    Set-Mailbox “MailboxName” -Type Room

  • Sry for late respond.

    Have now tested to create room mailbox from existing user in ECP,but still cant see that user/room mailbox i created in AD (copy from existing room mailbox in ad).

    Ended up with using powershell to enable mailbox from existing user then convert it to room mailbox.

    I still find it strange that ECP doesnt  see tha room mailbox i created in AD.

    Anyway thanks for respons and hope this will be fixed in future update.
