Hi All

We have a migration taking place by a 3rd party who are going to use a migration.admin account to remotely migrate emails onto there hosted platform.

When they tried to do the migration it failed due to permissions issues so they asked us to set full access permissions on the mailbox database, I have tested this on a DB below

get-mailboxdatabase "TestDB1" | Add-ADPermission -user "migration.admin" -accessrights GenericAll

I have checked using the below command and see the migration.admin account in the list

get-adpermission "TestDB1" | ft -auto

My question is if I look on the properties of an AD account that is in this mailbox store I do not see the migration.admin account listed

if I run the below command on a mailbox that is in that store I also do not see the migration.admin account listed

get-adpermission "TestUser1" | ft -auto

Is this correct behavior or does this mean that the permission I set on the database level is not filtering down to the mailboxes.
