Structuring Admin Roles for Office 365 Exchange Admins

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Microsoft_Office_365/Q_28650647.html

My apologies if there is a way to reopen a question and I just didn't see it.  I followed Vasil's instructions in the question above, and was able to get the exclusive policy setup and it does restrict other admins from modifying the executive mailboxes.  The problem now is that I can't seem to get an Admin Role configured that gives admins the necessary permissions (create mailboxes, reset password, distribution groups, message trace, etc.), without also giving them the ability to modify the admin groups.  Obviously, if they can just add themselves to the exclusive group, that would defeat the purpose. :-)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think you are simply confusing the roles here. The "Message Tracking" role does NOT give you access to the EAC -> Mail Flow -> Message trace tab or the Get-MessageTrace cmdlet. You can easily verify this via:

(Get-ManagementRole "Message Tracking").RoleEntries

Open in new window


And to check which roles actually have the cmdlet, use this:

Get-ManagementRoleEntry "*\Get-MessageTrace"
