Hi

I have an administrator account, Domain\Admin1, that should have been given some Exchange permissions by our Exchange admins.

I would like to clarify exact what permissions that account has.

Does anyone know how to do this? I think we need to use powershell now but I'm not sure of the command.

What exactly do you mean by permissions?  Were they added to a group like Exchange Admins which gives them rights?

You can use below PS script

$root=([adsi]“”).distinguishedName
$ou=[adsi](“LDAP://ou=x,ou=y,ou=z,”+$root)

# fill  with user  CN “Common Name”
$user=$ou.psbase.children.find(“cn=tartetCN “)
$groups = $user.memberof
foreach($group in $groups)
{
$strGroup = $group.split(‘,’)[0]
$strGroup = $strGroup.split(‘=’)[1]
$strGroup
}

Hi

Yes, they should have been added to an Exchange group but I don't know how to check this?

Is there no powershell command like "get-exchpermissions -user xxx" etc?

But why nost just check the Exchange Membership?

Get-ADPermissions (But this one is used just for modify very customized permissions with the ACL of AD relate to Exchange)

no you would need to create a powershell script to do that.  Do you have access to the Exchange console or Active Directory Users and Computers mmc?

Thanks!

I ran that command, but I can't see the "User" column easily, do you know if it's possible to specify that it displays the full characters?

Secondly, I want to check if the account is an Exchange View-Only Admin, is this possible via the powershell command?
