Remove a Role Group

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

If you no longer need a role group you created, you can remove it. When you remove a role group, the management role assignments between the role group and the management roles are deleted. The management roles aren't deleted. If a user depended on the role group for access to a feature, the user will no longer have access to the feature. You can't remove built-in role groups. For more information about role groups in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, see Understanding Management Role Groups.
