Granting Write proxyAddresses Permission on Descendant PublicFolder Objects

  1. In the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, right-click the Microsoft Exchange System Objects OU and click Properties.
    Note: If there is no Microsoft Exchange System Objects OU, you should select View | Advanced Features in the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
  2. On the Security tab, click Advanced, then click Add and specify the account. Then click OK.
  3. On the Object tab of the Permission Entry dialog box , select Descendant publicFolder objects from the Apply to drop-down list.
  4. Then open the Properties tab and select Descendant publicFolder objects again.

  6. Close the dialog boxes by clicking OK.

Setting Up the Agent Host Account

This section describes how to set the required permissions for the Agent Host Account used by Migration Manager for Exchange agents. This account is used to install and run Migration Manager for Exchange agents on agent hosts and to access the license server. The required privileges for the Agent Host Account are as follows:

  • Membership in the local Administrators group on the license server (unless alternative credentials are used for the license server). If server is located in another trusted forest, the account should have local Administrator permissions on the license server
  • Local Administrator permissions on the agent host server.

NOTE: By default each Exchange server is an agent host for itself. If you use the default agent host then to simplify the account setup process, you can grant these permissions to the Exchange Account and use it instead of the Agent Host Account.

To set up the Agent Host Account, perform the steps described in the related subtopics.

nOTE: Note that the steps are given only as an example of a possible Agent Host Account setup.

Changing the Default Source Agent Host Account

Caution: This section is relevant to the public folder synchronization only. Source Agent Host Account for mailbox or calendar synchronization is specified during corresponding job configuration.

The default Source Agent Host Account (initially displayed on the Default Agent Host page of the Exchange server Properties) is set when you add the source organization to migration project (see the Registering Source and Target Organizations section of the Migration Manager for Exchange User Guide for details).

If necessary, you can change the default Source Agent Host Account. For that, go to the Agent Management node in the Migration Manager for Exchange Console, and use properties of the corresponding agent host server.

To go on using the default Source Agent Host Account for Exchange migration, grant the permissions required for Exchange migration to this account (see the next steps).
