How to bulk grant 'full mailbox permissions' to multiple users in different forest? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the deal. We have 2 forests & domains with a 2 way trust between the 2 forests & domains. 1 forest & domain is Windows AD 2000/Exchange 2003 (Setup A)and the other forest & domain is Windows 2008 R2 + Exchange 2010 (Setup B). Each user in Setup A has a corresponding user account in Setup B. We would like to grant each corresponding Setup B account full mailbox permissions to its associated Setup A mailbox, that is User1 in Setup B needs to be granted full mailbox permissions in Setup A environment (User1 mailbox in Setup A). Is there a way to do this in bulk. We have just over a 1000 users. I have looked at ADMODIFY but I do not see a way to make it work for my requirements.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hi TD,

     

    Your environment :

     

    Setup A : Exchange 2003/Windows AD 2000

     

    Setup B: Exchange 2010/Windows 2008 R2

     

    There is a 2 way trust between the 2 forests and domain.

     

    You problem:

     

    You want each user in Setup A has a corresponding user account in Setup B, grant each corresponding Setup B account full mailbox permissions to its associated Setup A mailbox.

     

    Why do you want to do that(grant each corresponding Setup B account full mailbox permissions to its associated Setup A mailbox) ?

     

    When you want user1 in setup B to be granted full mailbox permissions in setup A environment (user1 mailbox in setup A), you can just add “full access permission” in ADUC. (because setup A is Exchange 2003, you can give full access permission from ADUC)

     

    So far as I know, it is impossible to bulk grant “full mailbox permissions” to multiple users in Windows 2000.

     

    Thanks,
