Active Sync Error

Hi All.

  I have Exchange 2010 and am trying to get Active Sync working in preparation for a migration from BES to an MDM.   When I run the MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer everything but one thing passes.

Attempting the FolderSync command on the Exchange ActiveSync session.
       The test of the FolderSync command failed.
              
      Additional Details
       
Exchange ActiveSync returned an HTTP 500 response (Internal Server Error).
Diagnostics:

I then looked in the event logs on the exchange server and see this error:

Exchange ActiveSync doesn't have sufficient permissions to create the "CN=XXX,OU=SBSUsers,OU=Users,OU=MyBusiness,DC=XXX,DC=com" container under Active Directory user "Active Directory operation failed on XXXX.com. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-031521D0, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
".
Make sure the user has inherited permission granted to domain\Exchange Servers to allow List, Create child, Delete child of object type "msExchActiveSyncDevices" and doesn't have any deny permissions that block such operations.

 So I go onto one of my DCs and verify that the test account indeed has "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent" checked and that that domain\Exchange Server has the above mentioned permissions on the account but it still doesn't work.  Any suggestions?

To work around this issue, assign the Exchange Servers group the right to change permissions against msExchActiveSyncDevices objects. To do this, follow these steps:

    Start Active Directory Users and Computers.
    Click View, and then click to enable Advanced Features.
    Right-click the object where you want to change the Exchange Server permissions, and then click Properties.

    Note You can change permissions against a user, an organizational unit, or a domain.
    On the Security tab, click Advanced.
    Click Add, type Exchange Servers, and then click OK.
    In the Apply to box, click Descendant msExchActiveSyncDevices objects.
    Under Permissions, click to enable Modify Permissions.
    Click OK three times.

 if the “Include Inheritable permissions from this objects parent” is cheked you uncheck it Apply setting, then go back check it and Apply agaain, ensuring that permission will get re-applied

is this for just one user or all users?

I have tested it with 4 users and they have all had the same results so I would assume it is affecting all users.

Well I finally figured it out.  After much trial and error it turns out that the first time I ran the 'prepareAD' command something went wrong.  I ran setup /prepareAD on the mail server again and now it suddenly works.  Not sure what was wrong but it's working now.  Thanks for the help all.
