View the Members of a Role Group

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

The members of a management role group are granted the permissions provided by the management roles assigned to the role group. You can view the members of a role group to see which users, universal security groups (USG) or other role groups are granted permissions by the role group you specify. For more information about role groups in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, see Understanding Management Role Groups.
