Exchange 2010: Insufficient rights error when trying to remove a mailbox


Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /homepages/13/d121821522/htdocs/mvt/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

Problem:  Tried to remove a user from an Exchange 2010 server using the EMC and got an error that this procedure was denied because I did not have the rights to or to be more specific, insufficient rights.   The account was disabled so I re-enabled it and that didn’t work.

Solution:  Went into Active Directory Users and Computers, found the user, right clicked and selected properties.  I then went to the security tab and clicked advanced.  I clicked on “Enable Inheritance” and clicked OK.  Went back into EMC and was able to remove the user.
