I am currently in the middle of an Exchange 5.5 to 2003
migration and have run into a little problem (if there is
such a thing). I believe it is a W2K AD issue...
Any new rights added for a user will disappear after about
Single Exchange site - Single W2K AD domain (native
mode). NOTE - customer claims domain was in Native Mode
before Exchange 2003 install. I believe it was changed
All ExDeploy tools pass - Exch2003 Domain Prep/Forest Prep
Customer installed Exch2003 server - migrated 4 test
Mail flow is working correctly both internal and internet.
No errors logged on 5.5 server or 2003 server. DC's have
no events logged either.
I'll give you the exact steps used to add the "send as"
right (this is how I discovered the problem):
Open AD Users and Computers on GC.
Under VIEW select ADVANCED FEATURES (adds security tab to
the properties page).
Open properties sheet for USER1. Select Security tab.
Add USER2 with "Receive As" and "Send As" rights.
The right will take effect and function properly and then
disappear after about 30 minutes.
ANY new user/right disappears after 30 minutes.
It looks like only default permissions remain (all groups
by the way.).
Tried the same with mailboxes that live on the 2003 server
with the same result, but I don't believe this is related
to just mailboxes.
Also tried setting up the ADC as 1-way from Windows to
Exchange just for giggles.
This may be one for the AD guru's!
