Just can't get enough of IT

This blog is about mostly anything in IT. But the primary focuses are Microsoft Technologies like Exchange, Office 365, Azure and Cloud Security.

A new PowerShell script to export all mailbox folder permissions has been published to TechNet Gallery and GitHub.

This script exports all mailbox folder permissions for mailboxes of type "UserMailbox". The permissions are exported to a local CSV file.

CSV Eample

"Mailbox";"FolderName";"User";"AccessRights"
"Mustermann, Max (mmustermann)";"Tasks";"Doe, John";"Editor"
"Mustermann, Max (mmustermann)";"Calendar";"Doe, John";"Editor"
"Mustermann, Max (mmustermann)";"Inbox";"Doe, John";"Reviewer"
"Mustermann, Max (mmustermann)";"Custom Folder";"Doe, John";"Reviewer"

This script is based on Mr Tony Redmonds blog post http://thoughtsofanidlemind.com/2014/09/05/reporting-delegate-access-to-exchange-mailboxes/

WIth Exchange Server 2013 CU11 and Exchange 2016 CU1 the Exchange Product Group introduced a new feature named Mailbox Anchoring.

The workaround provided by Veritas in KB article 107463 recommends to set a new registry key for the NetBackup process responsible for running PowerShell queries.

There is no guarantee that this workaround will fix your backup issuesd with Exchange Server 2013 CU11 or Exchange Server 2016 CU1. It seems that the only workaround is by creating a new service account for NetBackup service due to rights assignments being removed during Exchange Server CU setup.

Steps required:

  • Create a new NetBackup service account in Active Directory (see Exchange 2013 DAG and NetBackup Restore Error 5)
  • Add the new NetBackup service account as a member of
    • Exchange Organization Administrators domain security group
    • Administrators security group on each Exchange mailbox servers 
  • Configure the following NetBackup service to use the new NetBackup service account on each Exchange mailbox server:
    • NetBackup Client Service
    • NetBackup Legacy Client Service
    • NetBackup Legacy Network Service

Enjoy classic backup with Exchange Server 2013 and Exchange Server 2016.
