  • Deleted AD accounts still appear in Exchange Security

    When I am in ESM on my Exchange 2003 server and I right mouse click on the properties of my organization object and go to the Security tab I see SIDs from deleted AD accounts.

    I want to delete these SIDs from the Organization object but I get an error that says that the object is inheriting permissions from it's parent. What parent is it referring to? Isn't the Organization level the top level of Exchange?

    I know that I can stop the inheritance of the Organization and remove the SIDs but where is the parent object that it is inheriting permissions from?

    Thanks in advance

    from authenticated users and the exchange srv...

    have you installed and removed an ex srv in the org? that will leave a sid on that page...

    i dunno. are they hurting anything?
    its easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

      Thanks James,

      Yes, I have removed my old Exchange 2000 server from the domain. All of that conversion to Exchange 2003 and the removal of Exchange 2000 went beautifully. These accounts (SIDs) were there before the Exchange conversion. They are not hurting anything other than I want to clean them up.

      I would still like to find out where the inherited permissions are comming from.

      Thanks again,

      Bob Seeds

        Could be elsewhere in the domain. Send As/Receive As permissions can do similar things. Also look to see if someone has tried to setup Service Account status for full access to all mailboxes.
