Exchange 2010; Add Mailbox permission for a USER to the Members of the group

Hey All

Hoping i can get some help here. I have the following group (Mailenabled DistroGroup)

ForwardingGroup (email is forwardinggroup@mydomain.com)

Number of users 15

I wanted to be able to add my

domain\robert account to all members of the group with full mailbox access. I tried using this command:

[PS] C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\Scripts>Get-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "ForwardingGroup" | Ad
d-MailboxPermission -user "domain\robert" -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All

But the EMS just sits there and doesnt do anything

for what you are trying to do, syntax wise your command is correct
i have run in my sandbox and it succeeded okay

what happens when you run just
Get-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "ForwardingGroup"

Open in new window


what happens when you run it for one user of the group
Get-Mailbox -Identity "A_User_In_ForwardingGroup" | Add-MailboxPermission -user "domain\robert" -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All

Open in new window


trying a process of elimination...
thinking maybe not enough permissions or something bad with the shell...

I figured it out. My poor VM environment is so slow (taxed) that its not what it shold be doing when i type the commands. I have 8 GB ram + 4 VM's (3 Exchange Servers and 1 Client system) - Time to upgrade.

Thats for the input though. One last question...

Would you consider my command "the right comamnd" for the job? I have really only used Ex2k7's pwershell until i started studying for my 2010 Exam.

yes, i read your question over and  that command is probably the most easiest/efficient way to achieve it

i run vm's for tests also.. with 8gb.. around 1-1.5gb max for exchange can pass.. client machines 384-512mb max should do it

Thanks for the reponse. I just upgraded to 12GB of RAM (Yesterday) and now things are working like there supposed to.
