Can some please help me figure out how to give permissions to public folders. I been on the Microsoft support and found these two  shell commands, but it doesn't seem to work. Am I doing something wrong?

When i put in the command it looks like it went though, but permissions doesn't seem to be changing.

Add-RoleGroupMember -Identity "Public Folder Management" -Member Tony


Add-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission -Identity "\Marketing" -User "Chris" -AccessRights AllExtendedRights -InheritanceType SelfAndChildren

I have exchange 2010, but I am not sure how I would give permissions to folders that i don't even have permissions to.  It seems like i can only do this with a Shell command.

in exchange EMC, open the "toolbox" there is a public folder management tool
there you can select your PF and assign permissions as well?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

i just double checked, when you rightclick the PF "marketing" for example, then click "manage settings" then go through the wizard, you can assign people and their rights...

I assume you have exchange 2010 SP1?
