If you want users to be able to use Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Multi-Mailbox Search, you need to add them to the Discovery Management role group. Members of the Discovery Management role group have Full Access mailbox permission for the Discovery Search Mailbox that's created by Exchange Setup.
|Be default, the Discovery Management role group doesn't have any members. Administrators with the Organization Management role are also unable to create or manage discovery searches without being added to the Discovery Management role group.|
For more information about the Discovery Management role group, see Discovery Management.
For more information about Role Based Access Control (RBAC), see Understanding Role Based Access Control.

|You can't use the EMC to add a user to the Discovery Management role group.|
