AdminSDHolder - Inheritable Permissions

Hi Everyone,

I am having an issue where I cannot select the "Include Inheritable permissions from this objects parents"  in active directory (Windows Server 2008 R2)
tickbox
In fact I am able to select the box but within, 1 hour the box will become de-selected.

This causing our users having issues receiving emails on their Iphone's

After scratching my head for a while, I hit google and I believe I have narrowed down the problem to AdminSDHolder, Protected Groups and SDPROP. Which runs every hour and overwrites any changes I have made.

The Users are placed in an OU called "DE User" Thinking it may be a rpoblem with that OU, I took our test user "Peter Pan" and put him in the User OU. Unfortunately this made no difference and my permissions were still overwritten an hour later.
AD SS
My question is, how can I stop, AdminSDHolder from overwriting these permissions short of totally killing it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

You have to remove him from the AdminSDHolder group .... i wouldnt recommend to modify the AdminSDHolder group so what you can do is have another account for Management :)

Thanks for your help il be trying method 2 on that article ASAP, I would just like to add that the users I'm having problems with should all be standard users. Not admin rights etc.

Not sure exactly what has made the user accounts "privileged" and thus including in sdholder

Check the Members tab of the user and ensure he isnt a member of any of those groups if by any means he is remove .... give time for replication and try again.

Thankyou

For some reason Domain Users group was among the protected groups, I followed method 2 as per Navdeep and all is well.

But thanks Rancy for making me double check the groups, although I didn't expect domain user to be one of these protected groups.

But a Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter powershell script help me see the groups that were protected.
