Issues setting up permissions on Exchange for BesAdmin account

hi guys,

We have two domains, us.fc.local and uk.fc.local. We have a BesAdmin account set up with a mailbox on each of them.

The environment on uk.fc.local works perfectly fine without issues.

However, we are now setting up a Blackberry Enterprise Express server on the us.fc.local and I'm going through all of those steps.

I opened up Exchange management shell and types:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-ADPermission -User "BESAdmin" -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin, ms-Exch-Store-Visible.


And the error I receive is:

"There are multiple users or groups matching the identity "BESAdmin". Please specify a unique value.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidData: (:) [Add-ADPermission], ManagementObjectAmbiguousException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 3D79D923,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.AddADPermission
    + PSComputerName        : fcussrmail.us.fc.local"



I'm assuming this has something to do with telling the command to look at the BesAdmin account on the actual us.fc.local domain?

How can I do this correctly?

Thanks for your help

Try Set-ADServerSettings -PreferredServer "server name" before you ran this command, Get-ADServerSettings | fl should show you the current domain controller settings.
