Blackberry Enterprise Server Permissions

Tim asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am having problems configuring a new BES server for our organization. The issue is this. On one of the steps it tells me to go to my Exchange System Manager\Administrative Groups\First Administrative Group\Servers\<Exchange Name> and right-click, choose properties, click security and choose\Add besadmin to the tab and give it Send As, Receive As, and Administer Information Store. Since I had a BES server already the besadmin account was already added but Send As and Receive As are checked as allow and Deny. When I try to change the settings it says that this object is inheriting its rights from the parent object and the only way to change this is to uncheck the inherit permissions from Parent. What is the Parent object?

Also, Exchange Domain Servers, Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, and Administrator all have the Send As, and Receive As Deny setting set. I don't quite understand. I'm sure this is an issue from the previous administrator but now I am trying to correct and don't want to break the whole system trying to fix this problem. Can anyone shed some light on this?  If I uncheck the Allow inheritable Permissions checkbox will this affect all the Group\User names or just that user? Sorry for writing a book want to include as much info as possible.
