Delegate Permissions Dissapear?

Strange one This?

In my organisation we have to have our calenders set so that everyone can view (but not edit them)

We have just migrated to Exchange 2003 on another domain - so all these permissions were lost

So - I went into tools options, delegates and entered the group for my organisation and set the permissions accordingly

After restarting outlook I went back in the group was still there but all the permissions were set to "none" this happens for individual users as well?

I can work round the problem by assigning permissions in Exchange enabled Active directory users and computers - then going back into outlook and assigning the rights and they stick, BUT in some fit of MADNESS Microsoft decided NOT to list groups in here.

so why wont the permissions stick?

David WilhoitSenior Consultant, ExchangeCommented:
yup, native and mixed. If there's an exchange 5.5 server still in the org, then mixed has to be the mode. If it's gone, and you've removed the ADC, SRS and such, then native mode is an option, although you can't reverse it once you go, so be sure before you go that route. Now, if the ADC agreements are still involved, then those may be overwritng your perms in AD. fill me in....

It was installed straight out of the box, there is NO Exchange 5.5 on my domain, the users mail used to be in a 5.5 box on another domain but its now all 2003, (via netIQ migration) where are the functional modes set for Exchange?

David WilhoitSenior Consultant, ExchangeCommented:
Org properties. Probably in mixed, that's the default for a fresh install, so it can be added to a 5.5 org. Anyway, are you adding a user to the perms list or a group?

Ill check that in the morning (im at home now)

perms list?

The groups in question are distribution groups, that had their properties set in AD users and computers to be listed in Exchange - however I notice that they are lised for some users and not for others?

UDGs cannot be used as security principals, you have to use USGs. Try a test USG and let me know....

Success :)

Domain was in mixed mode My appologies :/

upped the functional level of domain and Exchange to Native,

Created a USG and it wouldnt work

Tried the existing GDG that we created originally .........
Then The permissiond stuck - for Global Distribution groups

So its working, to be honest I think raising the funtional level was the thing that fixed it - so you hit the nail on the head originally :)

Now just got to sort my other problem out and things will be sweet :)

Cheers M8

Yes, globals will work without an issue most of the time, but universal is recommended for ease of use, no boundaries in the forest. Now you raised your functional level in AD...to 2000 native or 2003 native? Exchange native can come afterwards.....

And the DGs work on the mailboxes, I forgot that the real issue comes in when DLs are assigned to public folders, and cannot be converted as a security principal in a mixed mode domain, which is why I ask about the native mode. Some reason I was thinking public folders and not calendars, oops!
