fix

These issues are addressed in NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator and Exchange Administrator version 8.0 Hotfix 55584.

Hotfix 55584 corrects the way Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) handles the following issues in the Account and Resource Management (ARM) console and the Delegation and Configuration (DC) console:

  • When you remove certain user accounts from the Send on behalf list on the Delivery options tab on the User Properties window, DRA removes all user accounts between and after the selected user accounts. This hotfix corrects this issue by only removing the selected user accounts from the Send on behalf list.
  • When you select multiple user accounts and try to update the properties of these accounts, DRA displays the error message, "The E-mail address field should not be blank. Enter an address." DRA prevents you from updating the properties of these user accounts. This hotfix corrects this issue by simulating the Recipient Update Service (RUS) for every mailbox or mail-enabled user account and completes the email address field with the email address of that user.
  • When you create or clone a user account with a mailbox and then try to edit the user account properties, DRA displays the error message, "The E-mail address field should not be blank. Enter an address." This error occurs because DRA requires an email address for any mailbox or mail-enabled user account. The RUS updates the email address field on a scheduled basis and the email address field may remain empty until you run RUS. This hotfix corrects this issue by simulating RUS for every mailbox or mail-enabled user account and completes the email address field with the email address of that user.
  • When you try to add a user account to multiple groups having the same name, but belonging to different organizational units (OUs), DRA only allows you to select one of these groups. This hotfix corrects this issue and allows you to add a user account to multiple groups.
  • If you are an Assistant Admin with the Add Object to Group power or the Manage Group Memberships role, when you select a user account to add to a group, DRA does not display either the Add to Groups icon in the toolbar or the Add to Groups option in the Tasks menu. This problem occurs because DRA only allows Assistant Admins with the Add User to Group power to add users to groups. This hotfix corrects this issue by allowing Assistant Admins with the Add Object to Group power to add users to groups.

Note:
To create mailboxes and mail-enabled user accounts, you should install the System Admin Tools for Microsoft Exchange 2000 or later on the Administration server computer.

Note: This hotfix requires DRA version 8.0

  1. Close all DRA user interfaces.
