Getting this error trying to make a change to the default receive connector

I am using an account with organization management and full domain and enterprise admin permissions. I have made sure that inheritable permissions are applied on the account.

Does anyone have any troubleshooting ideas. Tried various fixes so far but cant get anything to work

If you have tried things then you need to say what they are, because otherwise people may just repeat things that you have done.

You are getting an error about the Discover Mailbox missing. It should be recreated to begin with: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg588318.aspx

Things I have tried

- Made sure inheritance was set on user account
- Made sure AdminSDHolder has inheritable permissions
- Created a new Exchange Administrator account (with org management, domain admin etc)
- Re-run setup /PrepareAD

This is a single domain and forest with no child domains.

Have you tried with THE administrator account, or with the account used to originally install Exchange?
Are you still getting the error about the Discovery Mailbox being missing?

Hi,

Yes I have tried with the main administrator account used to install Exchange.
All Exchange 2010 servers have now successfully been upgraded to SP3 and the Discovery Mailbox and all arbitration mailboxes are now displaying.

Now when I try to perform the operation I no longer get the error in the logs however the pop-up comes up with the following message

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
The following error(s) occurred while saving changes:

Set-ReceiveConnector
Failed
Error:
Active Directory operation failed on DC.DOMAIN.com. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-03151E07, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0


The user has insufficient access rights.

Found the answer

Needed to add inheritance at the following location via ADSI Edit

CN=Domain,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=com

nstall ADSI Edit and then start ADSI Edit.
Click Start, click Run, type adsiedit.msc, and then click OK.
Locate the object in question, right-click the object, and then click Properties.
On the Security tab, click Advanced.
Click Allow inheritable permissions from the parent to propagate to this object and all child objects to re-enable permissions inheritance.
Click OK two times to apply the change.
Wait for Active Directory replication to propagate the changes, or force Active Directory replication if it is necessary.
