Message: The Recipient Update Service is starting a rebuild of <distinguished name><distinguished name>
   
Explanation

This Information event indicates that the Recipient Update Service has started a rebuild operation for the domain. The description of this event indicates the distinguished name of the Recipient Update Service that started the rebuild operation.

The Recipient Update Service stamps Exchange-specific attributes on Active Directory objects. The Recipient Update Service also looks for objects that have been created or modified since the last time it was run, and then updates the objects appropriately. The Recipient Update Service is configured to run against a specific domain and is set to run at specific intervals. You can also force the Recipient Update Service to run at any time by using the Update Now and Rebuild commands in Exchange System Manager. You do this using the following procedures:

To update only new and modified objects

  1. In Exchange System Manager, in the console tree, double-click Recipients, and then double-click Recipient Update Services.
  2. In the details pane, right-click the Recipient Update Service responsible for updating the domain that you want to update, and then click Update Now.

To update all objects

  1. In Exchange System Manager, in the console tree, double-click Recipients, and then double-click Recipient Update Services.
  2. In the details pane, right-click the Recipient Update Service responsible for updating the domain that you want to update, and then click Rebuild.

Component: Microsoft Exchange Recipient Update Service
Message: The service could not update the entry ‘<object name>‘ because inheritable permissions may not have propagated completely down to this object yet. The inheritance time may vary depending on the number of Active Directory objects within the domainand also the load of your domain controllers. To correct this problem, verifythat the Exchange permissions have been propagated to this object and then forcea rebuild for the Recipient Update Service on this domain.<distinguished name>
   
Explanation

This event indicates that the Recipient Update Service (RUS) could not update an object because of a lack of permissions. This issue may occur when the Recipient Update Service does not have permissions to the particular object (noted in the event), either because permission inheritance is blocked, or because the Exchange Enterprise Group is missing permissions at the domain level.

   
User Action

Run SETUP/Domainprep to reset permissions.

Version: 6.5.6940.0
Component: Microsoft Exchange Recipient Update Service
Message: The service could not update the entry ‘<object name>‘ because inheritablepermissions are not propagated to this object. The inheritablepermissions may be disabled because the object belongs to aWindows 2000 administrative group or the inheritable permissionswere disable explicitly by an administrator.<name>
   
Explanation

All users or groups (security principals) that belong to any of the three built-in administrators groups (domain administrators, schema administrators, or enterprise administrators) have their “inheritence security” turned off automatically. Enabling inheritence permissions allows all objects under a container to inherit the permissions of its parent container.

In this case, Recipient Update Service does not have permission to update those objects. This option might have been turned off intentionally to prevent these objects from inheriting permissions.

   
User Action

For the user to be updated by Recipient Update Service, you must turn on the inheritence. Use the Security tab of the user’s Properties to make the change.
