Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010 setup cannot continue because the required permissions have not been able to propagate.
Exchange setup requires that inheritance for permissions be enabled on the following Exchange objects:
- Exchange Organization object
- Exchange Administrative Group object
- Exchange Servers container object
- Exchange Address List object
- Exchange Public Folder object
- Exchange Public Folder tree object
Failure to enable inheritance for permissions on these objects may result in mail flow problems, store mounting issues, and other service outages.
To resolve this issue, make sure that the "Allow permissions to propagate to this object and child objects" setting is enabled for the object, and then rerun Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange 2010 setup.

|If you incorrectly modify the attributes of Active Directory objects when you use ADSI Edit, the LDP tool, or another LDAP version 3 client, you may cause serious problems. These problems may require that you reinstall Microsoft Windows Server™ 2003, Exchange Server, or both. Modify Active Directory object attributes at your own risk.|
