  • Mailbox right replication!

    Environment:
    Using Windows Server 2008, Exchange Server 2007 SP1.
    3 DC/GC where one is virtual on VM-ware
    There are 21 updates available and will be installed on one DC at the time tomorrow. Don't know if these updates have anything to do with my problem below, or solves them!

    Problem:

    1. It takes between 1 min and several hours before the mailboxright settings are applied. (If sharing user A's mailbox to user B!)
    If creating a new user, that person can log on to that mailbox after a few secs...

    2. Sometimes users are loosing their rights to other persons mailboxes.
    The supportstaff checks the account and the correct permissions are there, they just stopped working. They have to remove the permission and then wait for replication to occur. Then set the correct permission again. Then if unlucky it could get back to step 1.

    Its about 30-40% of all users that has a shared mailbox this occurs.

    Seems to be a replication problem but posted it in the Exchange forum...

    Can someone give me a hint how I could monitor/analyze this?

    Seems to be a replicaton error, so Its problebly not E2k7 at all, but posted it here because I noticed the error while using Exchange...

    Permissions are cached by Exchange. Therefore a delay in a permission taking effect is normal. The cache is flushed every couple of hours by default. While the cache time can be reduced, it is not recommended as it will have an impact on the performance of the server.

    As for permissions not there, that does sound like a replication issue between the domain controllers.

        Its an AD thing, so you may get better luck looking at it as an AD issue, not Exchange. Alas AD isn't my strength. I can get basic things to work, but when replication starts giving me grief I usually have to seek assistance elsewhere.
