Rename Exchange 2007 Default Security Groups (Roles)



    Hello -


    I have a client that is interested in renaming the Exchange 2007 Default Security Groups to meet defined organization standards.  I've seen that they can be moved, and based on the same information I would think that they can also be renamed. 


    I'm thinking, renaming the objects shouldn't change the SID, or GUID, but rather the DN which should result in a replicated change.


    Does anyone have any experience renaming these groups and what impact might result?

  • Issue description: Rename the default security groups in the “Microsoft Exchange Security Groups” container

    These groups have two unique properties: a well-known GUID and a distinguished name that can change

    <Exchange 2007 Permissions: Frequently Asked Questions>

    According to the sentence, the DN can be renamed

    But if it’s a mixed environment that has exchange 2003 and 2007, please do not rename the groups below based on “Preparing Active Directory for Exchange 2007”:

    Ø  Exchange Enterprise Servers (EES)

    Ø  Exchange Domain Servers (EDS)
