Hi

Windows 2016 standard with Essentials role + Exchange 2016.

When I run this ;

Add-AdPermission -Identity "My Identity" -User MyUser -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights "Send As"  

I get this error;

Active Directory operation failed on MYDC.AD.MYDOMAIN.COM. This error is not retriable. Additional information:  
Access is denied.  
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-03152D7B, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0  
    + CategoryInfo          : WriteError: (0:Int32) [Add-ADPermission], ADOperationException  
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : [Server=MYMAILSERVER,RequestId=48d7aa3b-b3be-4577-b367-348b5b842c5e,TimeStamp=18/07/2022

  ADPermission  
    + PSComputerName        : MYMAILSERVER.ad.MYDOMAIN.com  
  

What is the resolution please?

Thanks

    Hi @-- -- ,
    Based on the search, the problem may be Exchange Trusted Subsystem is not granted the "modify permissions" permission. Please follow these steps to ensure Exchange Trusted Substystem has the required permissions:
    • Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
    • Click View, and then click Advanced Features.
    • Right-click the OU that contains the user and then click Properties.
    • In the Security tab, click Advanced.
    • In the Permissions tab, click Add.
    • In the Enter object name to select box, type Exchange trusted subsystem, and then click OK.
    • In the Object tab, select This object and all descendant’s objects in the Apply onto list, locate Modify Permissions in the Permissions list, and then set it to Allow.
    • Click OK
    • Make sure above option is checked on all OU’S listed in the object path of the user object
