Set-MailboxFolderPermission is included in Mail Recipient Creation in Exchange Server 2019 and 2016

Applies to: Exchange Server 2019Exchange Server 2016


Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Exchange Server 2019 or Exchange Server 2016:
  • You enable the Active Directory split permission model by using this command:
setup.exe /PrepareAD /ActiveDirectorySplitPermissions:true
  • You use the following command to check whether the Mail Recipient Creation role is no longer assigned:
Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Mail Recipient Creation" -Delegating:$false | ft name
Get-ManagementRole -Cmdlet Set-MailboxFolderPermission | ft

It's expected that the Set-MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet should be in the Mail Recipients role instead of in the Mail Recipient Creation role.
