Inheritance is blocked for the Exchange database object.

Posted on 2008-11-19

On my Exchange server I ran the best practice analyzer tool and received the following error message.

Access control list (ACL) inheritance is blocked for the Exchange database object (CN=Mailbox Store (RECARO2),CN=First Storage Group,CN=InformationStore,CN=RECARO2,CN=Servers,CN=RNA-EMAIL,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Recaro North America,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=recaro_nao,DC=ad). This may cause mail flow problems, store mounting issues and other service outages. Follow Microsoft Knowledge Base article 264733 and use the Exchange System Manager to re-enable inheritance on this object.

I have read the TechNet article on how to resolve this but, I am unsure what object in the Exchange System Manager I will need to edit to enable the Inheritance, after creating the new registry entry to see the security tab.  Any assistance is appreciated.

    Hi DevilDog7856,

    The permission inheritance blocking can be removed by using exchange system

    Make sure that this really is what you want. The message you get from exbpa
    is a warning - if you don't have any problems you might not want to change
    the setting.

    A likely reason for this blockage is that you have removed deny for
    administrators or that you have added an account permissions at the store
    level. This might be added for some good reasons.
