XADM: Security tab not available on all objects in System Manager

This article was previously published under Q259221
Summary
In Exchange System Manager, the Security tab is displayed in an object's properties. However by default, the Security tab is displayed only on the following objects:
  • Address Lists
  • Global Address Lists
  • Databases (Mailbox stores and Public Folder stores)
  • Top Level Public Folder Hierarchy
More information
To display the Security tab on all objects, you must add a registry key. To have us add this key for you, go to the "Fix it for me" section. If you prefer to add this key yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.

Fix it for me

To add this key automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then, click Run in the File Download dialog box and follow the steps in this wizard.

Note this Fix it solution works for all languages. However, for some languages, the wizard text may be in English

Note if you are not on the computer that has the problem, save the Fix it solution to a flash drive or a CD and then run it on the computer that has the problem.

This change takes effect immediately; you do not need to restart Exchange System Manager. This change only affects the currently logged on user. If the ShowSecurityPage value is not present or is set to 0, the Security tab is available only on the objects listed in the "Summary" section.

Let me fix it myself
