What does the "Administer Information Store" privilege allow one to do in Exchange?

Hello,

Am looking for some information as to exactly what the Administer Information Store privilege allows a user to do in Exchange.  MSDN, Technet and MS KB have been extremely unhelpful.  I need to grant this authority to a group of users who will be administering Blackberry users (we have tested without and it does not work), but I would really like to know exactly what this will allow them to do.  This group does not administer exchange, and does not have the exchange system manager installed, but in the event one of them were to do this, what would be the potential impact?

Thanks,

James

It allows whoever holds the right to modify the mailbox rights of users on that store, and also allows them to mount/dismount the store.

Thank you for that answer, and I will ask another question - is there another way to grant users the ability to modify the mailbox rights of users without granting the "administer information store" right?  I suspect this is the part that is required for our group who needs to administer blackberry users, but they certainly do not need the ability to mount and dismount the store.

You can grant the users "Change Permissions" rights on mailbox rights.  To do this in bulk you can use the ADModify tool (http://www.admodify.net).  Other than that, I think you have to grant the administer information store right.
