Hi,

I resently had to restore some users in our AD (and then reconnect the mailboxes).
After that - I have some issues with some public folders.

One folder has no users or owners attached to it - so now I'm not able to change the security-settings.

Can anyone help me how to attach a new owner to the folder?

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to do that through ADUC or ADSIEDIT, or even on the Security tab of the folder in the Public Folder Management Console.

Thanks Simon - but I could not get access to the security tab since I did not have any users as owner or even access to the folder.

Anyways - I found a solution. A command through Exchange Management Shell helped me giving a user access to root folders.

AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 -toppublicfolder \ -User "FirstName LastName" -Permissions Owner

Open in new window


Thanks for your feedback anyways.
