Just as the subject describes. We have an Exchange 2010 resource forest with linked user accounts to account forests. Where can I assign permissions to share the mailboxes between each other? When I assign full mailbox access from the EMC it doesn't work.

The user account in the resource forest should be disabled and the mailbox linked to the user account in the external forest. Is this not the case?

Exactly, now how do I share one users linked mailbox with another users linked mailbox?

1) I attempted to assign " Full Access" from the EMC which can only pick users from the resource forest (the disabled accounts) and I cannot access the mailbox that was shared.

2)I logged in via Outlook and assigned owner rights via the GAL from the top level of the folder list view and that was a no go.

I can't find a standardized procedure for assigning permissions from one linked mailbox to another, in a single exchange user forest you can just assign " full access" from the EMC and it works fine. We currently have 1 Resource forest and 1 Account forest (about 150 mailboxes). I'm about to add another account forest and migrate the existing ~600 mailboxes to the resource forest, but I need to get shared mailboxes and shared linked mailbox working first.

That doesn't look like a solution, that looks like a hack to make something work. An Exchange Resource forest topology is a supported environment, how is this not documented already somewhere else?

Sorry for an unacceptable suggestion. I don't work for Microsoft and sometimes have had to think outside the box. If you find a supported solution please post it for the benefit of everyone. Thanks

I think you will have to create a new linked " shared" mailbox and link it to the accounts in the other forest. I cannot find info on how to share an existing resource forest linked mailbox. If you do find a way please post the solution.

I cannot answer " how is this not documented already somewhere else?" Thanks

What if a manager requests access to an employee's mailbox? Creating a user as a shared linked mailbox and export/importing data seems like it's not the cleanest solution for this common request?

If what I'm requesting is no possible I just want to know, but the duct tape route doesn't excite me very much. I should be able to apply permissions on existing entities. Microsoft should document this in the Resource forest deployment documentation. I have not found a solution yet.
