This is caused by "zombies" ie GUIDs that do not have an associated names. What 
you need to do is contact Microsoft and request the FindZombie tool. this will 
root out the rogue entries. In doing this you will also improve the overall 
performance of your messaging system.

Hey all


I want to solve the problem with the event 9554 (source: msexchangeis), but it 
wont work :-( 

The error message is this: Unable to update Mailbox SD in the DS. Mailbox Guid: 
bfde47cd-f7c3-4ec0-992c-0701669a4d86. Error Code 0x8004010f 

Here  is a link to 
<>  but the solutions 
there do not work eather :-(

And the MS knowledgebase tells me this: 

Step 2: Change Mailbox Permissions

1.         Start the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in. 

2.         Right-click the user whose permissions you want to change, and then 
click Properties. 

3.         Click the Security tab, click to select the Allow inheritable 
permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box, and then click 

NOTE: Do not select this check box for the built-in Administrator or for the 
Domain\Administrator objects. 

4.         Quit the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.


Here is  the link: - click - 

But it also do not work  :-(

So maybe anybody from this list can help solve my problem, tia


Mit freundlichen Grüßen
