Issues setting up permissions on Exchange for BesAdmin account
Posted on 2015-01-28
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
