Exchange Permissions 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Having this weird issue with a shared public folder.

    Can't make it visible to anyone unless they're given owner permission?

    Tried every other permission scenario that doesn't include owner permission, but it doesn't work.

    Anonymous has folder visible also.

    Other Folders are visible, when given the "folder visible" permission.

    Any ideas?

    Thx

  • "Default" would be the permission that matters for Exchange users that don't have permissions otherwise because they're authenticated, not "Anonymous".

    Be sure that the users have rights on the parent folder.

    Please check the public folder permission with the following command, if you need help please post the result.

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder"

    Best Regards.

  • @Ed - Sorry meant "Default" - Top Folder has Deafult set to "Publishing Editor"

    @Lynn-Li

    PS C:\> Get-PublicFolderClientPermission "\ccc"

    Identity                                       User                                           AccessRights
    --------                                       ----                                           ------------
    \ccc                                           Default                                        {None}
    \ccc                                           Constoso.com/Users/MMM            {FolderOwner, FolderVisible}
    \ccc                                           Anonymous                                 {None}
    \ccc                                           Constoso.com/Users/CCC             {Owner}
    \ccc                                           Constoso.com/Users/Admin          {Owner}
    \ccc                                           Constoso.com/Users/Symantec    {Reviewer}

    So the user "MMM" is the one that needs to see the folder "CCC" and nothing else - In this case i had to give it "FolderOwner" for it to be visible. Have many other folders that work fine with FolderVisible only.

  • Hi,

    If you need all users can see the content of the public folder, then add Reviewer permission on default user.

    Add-PublicFolderClientPermission "\ccc" -User "default" -Accessrights "Reviewer"

    FolderVisible   The user can view the specified public folder, but can't read or edit items within the specified public folder.

    For more permission you can configure, refer to Add-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet.

    As i write only the User "MMM" needs to see the folder "CCC" and  of course the user "CCC" being the Owner of the folder.

    The thing is it doesn't work as  it should on this specific folder...

    Thx

  • Default has no rights.

  • @Ed 

    Not sure what you mean by that? 

    Default has no rights, because not everyone needs to see what's in the CCC folder. Only CCC and MMM needs to see what is in the folder.

    Top Public folder has "Default" set to Publishing Author, so that all can see the folder tree, but "Default" is set to none on the "CCC" folder. "MMM" is then given "Folder Visible" To "CCC" so that it can view the tree, And then "MMM" is given "Publishing Author" rights to a sub folder.

    Issue is that when given folder visible to the folder "CCC", it's not visible. Only when given "Owner" rights, the folder "CCC" becomes visible. 

    This goes for any users that needs to see the folder "CCC".

    It works fine on other Folders, Just this one folder that is acting weird...

    I really appreciate you all using your time to try to help me out :)

    Thx

  • If you're having problems with just one folder, perhaps there's something you can't see that's corrupt.  Consider creating another folder, moving all the content to it, configuring all the permissions the same, then deleting the old one.

    I know , i'm just that kind of person that needs to know why :)

    Just weird that when given owner rights it becomes visible... Never seen that before, so i wondered if anyone had come across this issue before.

  • Sometimes we're not able to find out why.

  • Hi

    Did you try to set-up permissions using shell, rather than EMC.
