Sometimes Exchange Server doesn't include the "BESadmin" account in the correct server. Here's a quick fix for this.

1. Sign on to an Exchange Server with Exchange permissions.
2. Go to "Start" "Run" and type in regedt32. You will be creating a dword in the registry.
3. HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Exchange \EXAdmin
ShowSecurityPage dword value =1
4. Close registry
5. Open Exchange System Manager
6. Expand your Organization, expand admin groups and right-click on your first admin group. Click on properties. Repeat the following steps for each admin group.
7. Click on the security tab. If your "BESadmin" is not there click add, assign the rights it needs and then click ok.

Now every Exchange Server under that admin group has the proper BES permissions needed and you don't have to worry about missing permissions. The permissions get pushed down even when a new Exchange server is added to that admin group. When you right click on the Exchange Server in Exchange System Manager the rights are grayed out.
