ExFolders

I am trying to use ExFolders against 2010 and I select the GC and then select the stores.  I then select the folder properties I am trying to find and I get an error that the user does not have permission to access the mailbox.
even though the user I am logged in as is the domain admin for all servers.

Any thoughts?

If not have any thoughts on how to find a file that is causing a DOC_TOO_HUGE error in the stores?

Domain admin doesn't have access to Exchange mailbox database. You need to add permission at DB or Mailbox level and access. Also it is recommended not to use domain admin users for supporting Exchange server. You should rather create new account and add it to Exchange Org Group.

Thank you! And I am assuming that I can only do that in ADSI or powershell?
It is one domain admin user set for all servers.  Not my environment not set up by me.

I would create another account to do this work, rather than using the Domain Admin. That will allow you to have some control and accountability. The permissions have to be set via EMS:

This will give the account permissions to list the mailboxes:
Add-RoleGroupMember "View-Only Organization Management" -Member "MailboxAdmin"

and this will give them permissions to access them:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-ADPermission -User "MailboxAdmin" -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

Receive As is the same as Full Mailbox Access.

Powershell is required to setup the permission. You can use the command posted by Simon above.

Hi Liam, Run the following shell command and you will set the permissions on all the mailboxes in your organization so that the user you specify will have FullAccess rights on all mailboxes and ExFolders will not throw that error out anymore:

Get-Mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission -User [username] -AccessRights FullAccess –InheritanceType All

Hope this helps.
