hello all,
I have 2x Exchange DAG's within the same organisation in different AD sites.

We have a DAG in the UK consisting of 2x physical mailbox servers and 2x virtual CAS/HT boxes.
We have the same setup in the USA.

The USA has it's own small junior IT team. I wan't to give certain access privileges without the USA junior admins being able to do anything on the UK servers.

So far, I have used RBAC's to create helpdesk roles and the like. However, I need to give the USA admins the ability to manage their own databases only (not the UK ones). This is to carry out actions such as;

- Active/move a DB copy on a server whilst suspending it on another mbx host. take a server offline for maintenance whilst keeping all DB's up on the USA DAG.


How can I increase the USA admins Exchange access ensuring, that they cannot do anything on the UK- London DAG?
thanks, regards

I don't see any such restriction option, as DB resides at Org level, and if you are giving Org level permission, it give rights at highest level.

I second Amit as its a single level access and maybe what you can try out is give Object level access using ADISIEDIT

hello,
appreciate the feedback. Rancy, are you able to give me a few more details re ADSIEdit?

I don't realy like messing with that unless I know exactly what I am after and where to look.

What container should I be connecting to in ADSI to find this 'key'?
Which object is it I should be looking at?
What values should I be changing in Adsi?
thanks.

In ADSIEDIT you have to browse to the Servers container and on the properties of the specific Server object go to Security Tab and give the account Full control and wait
