Step 1. New Exchange Processing Task

Specify a name for the task and add a descriptive comment.

Step 2. Select Configuration Mode

Next, select whether you want to delegate this task to a trusted person or whether you want to configure and schedule the task.

  • Delegate resource processing task—Select this option if you want to create the task and delegate it to a trusted person who will run the task.
  • Configure resource processing task—Select this option if you want to create, configure, and schedule the task.

Depending on the mode you selected, the remaining steps offered by the wizard are different.

Step 3. Specify Re-Permissioning Options

This step is displayed regardless of the configuration mode you selected in the previous step.

This step lets you specify the options for the processing of Exchange objects.

  • Reassign object ownership and permissions to target users—Select this option to re-assign permissions and ownership set to the Exchange objects to the new (target) user accounts.
    1. Leave source accounts’ permissions—Select this check box to allow access for both the source and target user accounts (recommended). This will make the update smoother by granting both accounts the same privileges for the coexistence period.
    2. Replace existing target accounts’ permissions—If permissions for the target user are already set (that is, the object Security Descriptor contains the target user’s SID), you can grant the source account’s permissions to the existing target account by selecting this check box. In this case, the target account’s permissions will be overwritten. Leaving this check box cleared will keep the target account’s permissions intact.
  • Clean up legacy object ownership and permissions of migrated users—Select this option if you want to remove permissions granted for source accounts from the objects’ Access Control Lists (ACLs), thus disabling the rights for the legacy accounts. Normally, this should be done as soon as the coexistence period is over.
  • Revert to the original object ownership and permissions— Select this option to undo re-permissioning, which removes target users from the objects’ Access Control Lists (ACL) and returns all rights to the source accounts.

    NOTE: If two source users were merged to one target user during migration, and if only one of the source users had permissions on some objects, then after Exchange update and reverting permissions back, both users will have permissions on these objects (that is, the users will have common permissions).

  • Process from INI file—Select this option if you want to retrieve the processing options from an INI file. The INI settings file can be created in Migration Manager (Tools | Export to | INI File). See the Delegating Resource Update topic for more details. Note that if no INI file exists, the option is disabled.

Caution: This option is enabled only when the wizard runs in stand-alone mode.

The wizard cannot update permissions on a mailbox that has never been used. The Exchange store does not actually create the mailbox until the first time the user opens it, at which time Exchange creates the security descriptor in the store. Before processing a newly-created mailbox, activate it by logging on to it. Otherwise, the wizard will not process the mailbox permissions.

Step 4. Delegate Resource Processing Task

This step appears only if Delegate resource processing task mode was selected in Step 2. If you selected the Configure resource processing task option, proceed to step 5.

This step lets you specify one or more trusted accounts and delegate the rights to perform the task to those accounts.

To delegate the rights to a trusted account, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Browse button.
  2. In the Select User or Group dialog box, select a user or group you want to delegate the rights to and click OK.
  3. Click the Add Account button. The account will be added to the list of delegated accounts and will automatically be assigned the rights assigned to the Resource Admin role. For more information about the available roles and the rights possessed by each role, refer to the System Requirements and Access Rights document.

Click Next to proceed to the Complete the Exchange Processing Wizard step.
