How to give The domain users group full access to all public folders

Dear All

I'm have a bit of a nightmare setting the permissions for all public folders in exchange 2010.  I already have a folder structure so they need to inherit the permissions from the parent folder.  What would be excellent is adding the domain users group as the permission rather than having to add all of the users.

I have added the domain users group to public folder management group but that didn't seem to do a thing.

I have also tried using the MMC to add the group to root folder in side the admin tool.  Got users to log off and on not joy.  Is there a PowerShell command that I can use that will add everyone in one swoop?

If I'm understanding your question correctly there should be a pre-canned script in the ExScripts folder.  Open EMS and run this:

cd $exscripts

This will change the working directory to the location of the AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 script:

Hi Jason

Many thanks for the comment not sure on how to use it though?  Is this just on a user level or can I just put in domain users?

Hi cybersi,

I am not entirely sure what you have or haven't tried, but please can you confirm:

1) You have a security group that contains the users (or sub-groups) that you want to access the public folder(s)?

2) You have added this security group to the public folder, and given it sufficient permissions ('owner' gives all permissions for example)?


That works for me on Exchange 2010.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi cybersi,

Does the above that I set out work for you?

Thanks,

Hi Alan

1. Yes they are all in group

2. Did you use the public folders MMC to set permissions?

Hi Simon,

As with most things 'windows' there are multiple options, but yes - if you know the Public Folders MMC, then use that.

Open up the MMC
Server
{Find the public folder that you want to change}
Right click on the folder in the middle pane
Manage Settings
Update client permissions
Add users
Add the security group
Select the permissions to give (folder owner or whatever you choose)


Thanks,

Alan.
