Active directory response:000000005:SecErr DSID........ (Setting up Send AS)


  • I don't know why this error message is coming up when I'm doing everything as Admin account and the account has rights to create, etc. rights.

    "Active Directory operation failed on This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied. Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-03152612, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0"

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, I know that you are getting the error message above when you assign mailbox's send as permission.

    Any misunderstandings, be free to post back!

    To fix it:

    Find the user in ADUC, and then go to the properties -> Security -> Advanced:

    Check if the permission inheritance has been enabled. If it displays as "Disable inheritance", then we need to refer to the steps in the following article to grant the "modify permissions" permission to Exchange Trusted Subsystem.

    Access denied when you try to give user "send-as" or "receive as" permission for a Distribution Group in Exchange Server 2010 or Exchange Server 2013

    Hope it helps.
