Hi

We just added more mail databases in our information store on Exchange 2007.  In other words we have added thirdstorage group to the first and second storage groups to better organize the mailboxes.  When moving the users that have blackberrrys from the original first storage group to the second or third storage group they loose their connections to the blackberry server.  What do I need to run on the Blackberry Server so that the server can recognize the second and third storage group.  Thanks in advance for the help!

As long as you give the besadmin proper rights on the mailbox store in the new storage group, yuou should be fine.

Hi

Thanks for the quick responses.  How do I give besadmin access to each mailbox store?

Thanks

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi, just run the shell command below again to ensure the permissions are set on all stores:
get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-adpermission -user BESadmin -accessrights GenericRead, GenericWrite -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

Open in new window

Take Exchange System Manager, right click the mailbox store in question and take properties. Go to Security tab and add besadmin account and give full control. Make sure that send as and receive as permissions are selected to allow.

Also you can assign the permissions to an individual store by using the following shell command:
add-adpermission -user BESAdmin identity <mailbox_database_name> -accessrights GenericRead, GenericWrite -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

Open in new window

It appears that the shell commands are being modified when I post them here.  Please refer to the link below for all the details:

http://www.blackberryforums.com.au/forums/microsoft-exchange/4786-permissions-set-administrative-group-exchange-level-not-inherited.html#post20360

Also "If a mailbox is moved from one mailbox store to another within the same Microsoft Exchange Server, the BlackBerry smartphone user will not be able to send and receive email messages until the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is restarted."

Couple of questions.  

1. I am having trouble with the Exchange Shell and I don't think I have the proper syntax.  My server name is Exchange and one of the mailbox databases is SCR Database.  

2. I also went into Active Directory Sites and Services on our domain controller and gave full access to BESAdmin on each store.  Each store at BESadmin access but not with full permissions.  Should this do the trick?

Thanks again for the help
