Active directory

By ctullos ·
Hello all,

I am new to the forum, as well as Active directory. I have had a little over six months experience now. I have a question, hopefully someone more experienced... Possibly less can answer it. Let me start by describing our network. We have close to 200 users, Two DC's, and one exchange server. Here in lies the problem, I will provide a brief example: We have a secretary, her name is "Jane", Jane has rights to view "John's", "Jame's", and "Jim's" calender, inbox, etc. "Jane" gets fired for embezzling money. Now we clear out Jane from the active directory, BUT we have no idea what Jane's rights were... so every time I send a message or meeting request to "all users" I get a mailer daemon back. Is there any way to PROACTIVELY solve this issue. Pro Active meaning, before I get complaints about these mailer daemons?

You have to remove her name for all the mailing list and also del her mail box from exchange server hope this helps.

Keep us informed as to your progress if you require further assistance.

Let me...

...explain something.

When you delete an object from your AD, you effectively remove the object from the AD, but ...if you in the past given that particular object to permissions else where, meaning like a file server than the directories where that object had permissions should still be there.

Unless, besides deleting the JANE object fom AD, the object was also removed from shares and other areas.

As to mailboxs, if the object permission was view other mailboxs, than thats fairly simple. Just give new permissions to new objects.
