Cloning a template account that is an owner of a Exchange 5.5 Distribution Lists changes the Distribution List ownership to the target account.


DRA clones all attributes of the template account including the Distribution List ownership.  


Hotfix 12001 ensures the Administration server properly handles Distribution List ownership when cloning user accounts that have mailboxes. If your environment includes Exchange 5.5 and you clone user accounts that own Distribution Lists, apply this Hotfix. The Hotfix allows DRA to preserve Distribution List ownership for the account you want to clone.

To install this Hotfix, run the DRA65000_Hotfix12001.exe file on the Administration server computer. This Hotfix modifies the following file  on the Administration server computer

  •  McsExchLib.dll

By default, this file is located in the Program files\NetIQ\DRA folder.


Hotfix 12001 also addresses the issue described in the following Knowledge Base article:

NETIQKB11261  - Error:'The Directory and Resource Administrator service encountered an exception.  Failure  information is provided within the application trace file.  Please save this file  and provide it to NetIQ Corporation.  The service is now terminating.' When an Assistant Admin Attempts to Clone an Exchange 5.5 Mailbox
