Client permissions, Public Forders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear, restore a public folder in Exchange 2003 contacts from a pst file and I can not change some elements even though the client permissions have the owner role. Step only a few items (in this case are contacts)
    I would appreciate if you tell me how to change the permissions onthe items.
    thank you very much

  • Probe to copy the contacts into new folders and I can modify, the issue is that those contacts now I can not set permissions as I have always total control ....
    Now there is no problem since all change, the problem is when wehave after you define the permissions that were in the plans.

  • You can use the PFDAVADMIN tool.
    File level permissions are not available in Public Folders. It is the same permission for all objects in the folder.

  • The public folder is corrupt.
    You will need to create a new public folder, copy the contents to a folder in a mailbox and then copy them across to the new folder. DO NOT copy them directly between the two public folders.

  • I just change the server seems to work well, only happens to me with some contacts, to have these read-only within the contact folders in half open as read only and permissions are well defined from the administrator of open well it can be?
    thanks

  • I have seen this before and never really found a complete solution. Only seems to happen with Exchange 2003 as well. Technically there are no item level permissions so what you are seeing shouldn't happen. Therefore that indicates that something has got corrupt, either in the folder, or if the problem follows despite what I have written above, in the contact object itself. If the latter is true, then that will mean creating a new contact and copying the content across. One client actually did a simple export of the contacts to a spreadsheet and then imported them again as there were so many with the problem.

  • Well, thanks Simon, I'll see that I do because I have about 15,000 contacts.

  • Item level permissions are not available in Public Folders. It is the same permission for all objects in the folder.

    It should also be pointed out that Exchange is not a CRM, so 15,000 contacts in a public folder is probably not the best place for them.

    Still, PFDAVADMIN can be used to remove any item-level permissions if
    any had been set incorrectly.
