Hey all,

when i go to manage permissions on any of my exchange users, it has the same broken SID listed as full access.  I tried to do resolution on the SID but it was some random user account that was deleted a long time ago.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to identify this SID?  and why it's on all my mailboxes?

thanks

Try http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/sidtoname/index.htm.  It is a CLI program that will identify broken SIDs.  Since it is a broken SID and the AD account no longer exists you can safely remove it from the mailboxes.

Also, use ADSIEDIT.msc and start in the configuration container > services> Microsoft Exchange and view the security of the object for the broken SID.  Keep working your way down to the DB object until you find which top level object it is set on.
