Add mail enabled public folder to email distro list in Exchange 2010

I am trying to add an email enabled public folder as a member of an email distro list.
Enviroment is Exchange 2010 sp2 and AD 2008 R2.

I am using EMC then going to Recipient Configuration container and then Distribution Group container, then modifying the distro group and adding the mail enabled public folder.  However, I receive the following error:

Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

I am logged in to the Exchange server with an account that is a member of the following groups:
Domain Admin
Exchange Admins
Public Folder Management

I am not following the correct steps, or am I missing some unkown permission rights?

Did you just recently do a migration? This is definetly a permission issue based on the error.

Do the following...
- open adsiedit
- connect to the "default naming context"
- Expand DC=domainname,DC=domain,DC=com>CN=Microsoft Exchange System Objects
- right click on the PF>select properties
- click Advanced Tab, Ownership

Take a look at the permissions and make sure they are correct.

Exchange Admins isn't one of the default groups you have that grant access to what you want to do. You would need to be either an Organization Management or Recipient Management group member to do this. Make sure your name or a group you are a part of is in either of those groups and it should then allow you to do what you want.

@Spec01: I tried taking ownership of the public folder but that didn't seem to help.  We did do a recent migration use Quest Migration tools to move the public folders from 2003 to 2010.

@acborwn2010:  My account is already a member of both the Org Mgmt and Recipient Mgmt groups.

Have you verified the permissions using ADSIEdit? Does this happen with any other Public Folders or just this one? I would first compare the permissions with a Mail Public Folder that is working and try to replicate the security.

If New mail public folders are working fine I would create a new one move the mail items to it from the current one, delete the current mail public folder and enable the new one with the same email as the one that you deleted.

It looks like the DL was no longer inheriting all permissions from the root. I reenabled permissions inheritance and I was able to then add the PF as a member.

Thanks Will.
