In a recent installation of Exchange 2010 when we logged in using the Exchange Admin account for the FIRST time, we were not able to view all objects. It was similar to the issue reported on the post - http://qa.social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchange2010/thread/fc568cc6-8691-4127-b70b-bcc82f9b1f7f
“The user "domain\administrator" isn't assigned to any management roles."
To resolve this, I followed the steps -
1. First please check If you have "Allow inheritable permission..." checked for Microsoft Exchange Container and on Org Container ADSIEDIT.
Note: You can follow the steps below to find the settings.
1. Please try to start ADSIedit.
2. Navigate to "Configuration->Services->Microsoft Exchange"/"Configuration->Services->Microsoft Exchange->First Organization"
3. Righte click on it and select to "Properties".
3. Select "Security" tab.
4. Click "Advance". There please check if you have ticked "Allow inheritable permission" option.
2. Then please verified the attributes msExchRoleLink and msExchUserLink attributes on CN=Role Management-Organization Management-Delegating,CN=Role Assignments,CN=RBAC,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=….
The value should be "CN=Role Management,CN=Roles,CN=RBAC,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=…"
3. Please check if "Role Mangement" exists under CN=Roles,CN=RBAC,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=…
4. Also check if "Allow inheritable permission" ticked for "Role Management".
After that, please test the issue again.
