Running Exchange 2010 with all patches.  We have over 25 phones currently working just fine, however, there are 2 email accounts/phones we can't get setup.  They used to work, nothing has changed, now suddenly those two phones no longer work.

I removed and tried to add the accounts and get "can't verify account, username & Password are incorrect".  They however are not, their accounts work just fine with everything but the phones.  We even tried adding these two accounts on several different phones with different OS's.

I have looked into their account on Exchange and can't find anything different from other accounts.  I tried disabling and re-enabling the Mobile Active sync on those mailboxes, but no go.

These phones had been working for months just fine...

Are there any Application Event Log Errors relating to the accounts you are having problems syncing?

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.

Actually.. I just found one... this is what it says..

Exchange ActiveSync doesn't have sufficient permissions to create the "CN=Matt Torres,OU=Employees,OU=People,DC=si,DC=wp" container under Active Directory user "Active Directory operation failed on DC1.si.wp. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-031521D0, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
".
Make sure the user has inherited permission granted to domain\Exchange Servers to allow List, Create child, Delete child of object type "msExchangeActiveSyncDevices" and doesn't have any deny permissions that block such operations.

Okay - please have a read of my article and check the Inherited permissions / group membership:

If that doesn't work - there is always Plan B!
