AD Insufficient Rights error when trying to change mailbox type to Room RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I've got 2 mailboxes migrated recently from E2K to E2K7. Currently they are showing up with the SharedMailbox type. I'm trying to change them to Room mailboxes. When I do this I get the following error:

    Set-Mailbox : Active Directory operation failed on SERVERNAMEHERE. T
    his error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights
    to perform the operation.
    Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-03150A48, problem 4003 (INSUF
    F_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
    At line:1 char:12
    + set-mailbox <<<< -Identity "MAILBOXNAMEHERE" -type room
      + CategoryInfo     : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Set-Mailbox], ADOperati
      onException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CE860BAE,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Recipient
      Tasks.SetMailbox
    

    I've  looked at the AD permissions for the account associated with the mailbox and the check box for inheriting permissions from parent is checked. Tried unchecking and rechecking that with no success. The account I am using to do this is part of a group that does have permissions to the box. Any suggestions as to why this may be occuring?

    Thanks

    Peter

  • What AD rights does the account have?

  • I had the same error message converting a mailbox type from 'User' to 'Shared' in Exchange 2013.

    Disabling the shared mailbox's user account worked for me.

  • Your fix works in exchange 2016 as well. Just disable the user. Usually it works fine and disables it itself by the command, but who knows.  thanks.
