Problems authenticating to ActiveSync? Don’t be an Admin then!
Recently had the following error when testing ActiveSync (via www.testexchangeconnectivity.com after the IT manager said their Android device wouldn’t work )
I did a bit of digging and found out something I did not know – if you are a member of any BUILTIN Administrative group in Active Directory then you cannot utilised ActiveSync!! (This is due to the “Inherit permissions” removing as you are a member of a “Protected Group” from what I could gather).
Oh well, time to remind people that they should not be using Domain Administrative accounts for day-to-day access!!!
