Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

This topic shows you how to use the Exchange Management Shell to remove public folder administrative permissions from a user.

You can't use the Remove-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission cmdlet to remove the rights of a member of the Public Folder Management role group. You must use the Remove-RoleGroupMember cmdlet.

There are two methods by which a user is granted the permissions to administer public folders:

  • Public Folder Management role group
    Adding the user to the Public Folder Management role group is similar to assigning the Public Folder Administrator role in Exchange 2007. It grants the user all the permissions necessary for managing public folders.
  • PublicFolderAdminstrativePermission cmdlet set
    Using these cmdlets is more granular and gives you the ability to specify the scope for the user in the organization by modifying the database's access control lists (ACLs).

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Role groups" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.
