SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You have Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft Lync Server 2010 deployed in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment. You try to disable or remove a mailbox on an Exchange Server 2010 server. In this scenario, the operation fails, and you receive the following error message:
Action 'Disable' could not be performed on object 'FirstName, LastName'. 

FirstName, LastName
Failed
Error:
Active Directory operation failed on Server.domain.com. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation. 
Active directory response: 00002098: SecErr: DSID-XXXXXXXX, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Exchange Server 2010 Mailbox server cannot clear the value of the msRTCSIP-Line attribute. Therefore, access is denied when you try to disable or remove a mailbox.
