Organization Management Group

Recently I have noticed that there have been a number of servers being randomly added to our Organization Management Exchange Group in AD.

Whats the true purpose of this role and when should servers technically be added to the group? TBH I always thought it was only supposed to be for Exchange Admins and Exchange servers...

Thanks in advance.

Administrators who are members of the Organization Management role group have administrative access to the entire Exchange Server organization and can perform almost any task against any Exchange Server object, with some exceptions, such as the Discovery Management role.


Important: Because the Organization Management role group is a powerful role, only users or USGs that perform organizational-level administrative tasks that can potentially impact the entire Exchange organization should be members of this role group.

Yes you are correct: no other users should be added as updated above.

Thank you Saif.

How do you determine what servers should be in this group? As I mentioned, the users I understand, but  have 10 exchange 2016 servers, but show some 47 servers in the group. I'm wondering if they are incorrectly being added, for some reason.

the account that's used to install Exchange 2013 in the organization is added as a member of the Organization Management role group. This account can then add other members to the role group as needed.


If they are incorrectly added then remove them.
