Exchange 2010 Permissions

We recently upgraded from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 and I am no longer able to add a distribution list and managers are not able to modify a distribution list in any OU other than the built-in "Users" OU. If I try to create one in any other OU I get "Access Denied, User has insufficient access rights". I've tried adding "Everyone" full control to the OU and I am able to both add and modify the list so I am sure it's a permission thing, but if I run an effective permissions on the OU for my account I have full control and nothing is denied. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of AD are you running? You may need to use a Domain Level Account (Rights) for server changes etc. Have you also tried to do in the EMC (Exchange Management Console) verses trying to change in AD?

Yes. We found that my Admin level rights were not sufficient so I had to have a Domain Level account created with all the elevated privleges. Hope this helps your situation.

We are running in 2003 functional level with several Server 2008 R2 domain controllers and a few 2003 stragglers. I am using a domain account with Organization Management rights as well as Enterprise Admin, Schema Admin, and Exchange Organization Administrator. I have tried via EMC and EMS with the same results. The only way that seems to work is to give "Everyone" "Full control" on the object or OU.

I believe this would fall under your enviroment being in Co-exist mode. Question: are you using AD on your local machine and or are you using AD on the actual server/RDP/Console? The reason why I ask is that your enviroment sounds similar as we have Exchange 2010 Server 2008 along with 2003 AD. For this purpose we had to create a seperate Domain Level (Top Level) in AD. For example: If my username is admin01 and I have admin level rights, that is good for my login to my machine and daily duties. However, if I am making changes, account creation, AD rights, etc.; I need to use my admin02 with Domain Level to perform these level attributes. Hope this helps. It just really appears that the level of rights are not sufficient to perform those Exchange level changes. Maybe look to up the rights for the Exchange Administrator Role.

The funny thing is that I can create any other object in the Exchange console, user, contact in the same OU. I can also create Distribution Groups in the Default Users OU. I can create a Distribution group via ADUC and then mail enable it via EMC, but once I do that I cannot add members to it via EMC, but can via add and remove members via ADUC with no problems, I am using the same account for both operations.

Silly question.......on the Exchange 2010 box, is your account added to the User Accounts? It has to be something in the config of your Server 2008/Exchange box.

The user in question didn't have the correct rights.  I created the management role and assigned a group, but the user wasn't in that group.
