We have Exchange 2010.  We are migrating some users from our mail servers to another company.  A vendor tried to take 300 mailboxes and using a script add a Service account needed to the Full access permission via the Shell in EMC.  The cmd is below and repeats for all 300 mailboxes.  It seems to run successfully but when you open the EMC GUI and check Full Access permission the Service account is not there.


Add-MailboxPermission Service.account  -User user1@company.com -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Automapping $false


Any idea why it doesn't work?


Thanks

What permissions does the service account have? Is it a regular account or a domain admin? If it is a domain admin then the permissions will be immediately removed.

is that powershell backwards?  So from the shell above user1 is gaining full access to service.account?

Add-MailboxPermission "*Target User*" -User "*User*" -AccessRights FullAccess -Automapping $false

Now here is a twist....once I ran that command using my own email address as the test on my Outlook Client now I see the Service accounts mailbox and I can access it.  I thought the Automapping switch would stop this no?

It should prevent it from automapping unless it was added without that attribute or done via the EMC

YUP I got it.  It was added before by running the incorrect cm,d.  I removed and then re-ran the cmd as you stated and it did it correctly without automapping  Thank you
