Understanding RBAC Exchange 2010

Hi Readers,

I was just revising Exchange 2010 concepts so thought of sharing  about RBAC as it confuse many individuals.

Role Base Access Control is introduced in exchange 2010 & is not available in previous versions.

This brings granular control over Exchange .

To understand better let me share a small diagram :-


Where –> SCOPE  ——> It can be OU,group etc this is the first thing that comes when planning RBAC.

What –> ROLE  ——> What the task will be performed. (Exchange 2010 come with 65 built-in Roles, you also have the option of creating cutom Roles)

Who –> ROLE GROUP ——> Who will perform actions , may be a particular group.

GLUE —> ROLE ASSIGNMENT —-> This binds above three together

RBAC  has made life easy for exchange admins as they no longer need to create/modify ACL’s for assigning particular permissions to users/group (For example :- helpdesk Specialists)

This is the refrence from the book I am studying , after reading the explanation I was forced to share it on my blog.
