using add-mailboxfolderpermission operation couldn't be performed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I like to use Exchange 2010 Powershell to give review rights for user B into the the calendar of user B. Seems easy, but no I ran into errors.

    I use: Add-mailboxfolderpermission -identity UserA@domain.com:\calendar -User  UserB@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer

    I get the error: The operation couldn't be performed because userA@domain.com:\calendar couldn't be found.

    I tried several users, same error. Strangely enough a meeting room box did work.

    What am i doing wrong?

  • Hi,
    Personally I find it easier to use the alias instead of primarysmtpaddress, so that is something you could try.
    Also, if the calendar folder is in a localized language you need to specify that name instead of Calendar.

    Example:
    Add-MailboxFolderPermission martina:\Kalender -AccessRights Reviewer

    In the above example, the Calendar Folder is in Swedish.

  • Sorry this is correct:

    I use: Add-mailboxfolderpermission -identity UserA@domain.com:\calendar -User  UserB@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer

    I get the error: The operation couldn't be performed because "userA@domain.com:\calendar" couldn't be found.

    I tried several users, same error. Strangely enough a meeting room box did work.

    What am i doing wrong?

  • Thx Martina for your hint,

    I found out :\calendar in Dutch should be :\agenda. Interesting is dat meetingroom mailboxes are in UK language (:\calendar) and the user mailboxes in localised language. Not very consequent.

  • Thank you! The localized language was the culprit here. Thanks for sharing.
