Hosting Chat Communities

Grant Administrative Permissions to Users

The Exchange system administrator can grant specific administrative permissions to users by making them chat users, chat sysops or chat administrators. These administrative roles allow the user to issue certain IRC and IRCX commands from a chat client.

Tip   Add individual members as chat administrators, sysops, or users if you plan to add only a few at a time. Otherwise, use Active Directory Users and Computers to create a group for users, add the group to the account, and then grant an administrative role to the group. For further information, refer to your Windows 2000 Server online documentation.

To grant chat administrator or chat sysop permissions:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Chat Community where you want to create administrative permissions.
