Exchange 2007 - Force REplication for Full Access

Hello ALl,

I have a company mailbox that we have added third party contacts to.  Everyone has access to view the contacts, but only limited amount of person have rights to add contacts to it.

Currently I have added a new user to Full-Access of this mailbox which should allow the user to add new contacts under this mailbox, but its been 15mn since and the user is still unable to add contacts.  

Is there a way I can have exchange to force the permission to take effect ASAP?

Unless you have set your replicaton costs in Exchange it will use the Active Directory Site Cost for replicaiton to kick in.

Force AD replicaiton via comamnd line...

Also, if you are using cached mode in your environment this will also slow down the process as cached mode only refreshes every 120 minutes by default. So the best test to ensure that permissions have been granted is using OWA which connects directly to Exchange.

Hope this helps

The only way to force the permission to update is to restart the information store. This flushes the permission cache on Exchange. Nothing to do with cached mode in Outlook - OWA will have the same issue.

Thanks for the reply.  

Sorry didnt get to this question earlier.. but as Spec01 pointed out, OWA took the changes successfully, but Outlook did not.  Because it was the weekend, it wasn't much of a hurry and today I verified the changes the take affect.
