Has anyone seen this issue?

The “Exchange Domain Servers” group from root domain (domain.net) getting automatically removed from Exchange Enterprise Servers Group.
So there is one parent domain domain.net and 5 child domains. Exchange 2003 servers are installed in each child domain. Exchange 2010 Hybrid was installed in the root domain Domain.com

We were getting Insufficient permissions error when moving mailboxes to the cloud as well as from 2k3 to 2010. We discovered that once we added “Exchange Domain Servers” from root domain to “Exchange Enterprise Servers” for every child domain, the issue with permissions was resolved……Only, this group disappears….Only “Exchange Domain Servers” from root domain goes missing. We checked Group Policy and confirmed that they didn’t have 3rd party tool running. Still the group keeps disappearing from Exchange Enterprise Servers. Happens in less than 10 min.


Let me know.

Hi,

Do you have any Group Policies that define Restricted Groups?  That is one way of controling group memberships.

Regards,
Alastair.

No. We dont. We used gpresult to confirm it. We did find that Exchange 2003 server is doing it. THe security event in the security log 637 shows that. Please advice if you know how to prevent exchange 2003 server from doing it.

Propagation issue. Manually granted the standex.net Exchange Domain Servers Group the same permissions in each child domain that the Exchange Enterprise Servers Group had. The issue was resolved
