What is the role of the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service?
The most likely cause for this error is that the Exchange Server 5.5 distribution list to which the users belong was replicated into an Active Directory mixed-mode domain rather than into an Active Directory native-mode domain. See the link to "Troubleshooting and Repairing Exchange Server 2003 Store Problems" for details.
As per Microsoft: "This event is typically seen in Mixed Environments (that is, environments that still contain Exchange 5.5 servers). This event indicates that Exchange attempted to set permissions on a Distribution List and, in doing so, attempted to convert it to a Universal Security Group (USG), which failed". See MSEX2K3DB for additional information about this event.
This event occurs when there is an attept to use a distribution group (new to Active Directory) for client permissions and your AD runs in mixed mode. Such groups can be used only when AD runs in native mode. Use the Security groups that are compatible with NT domains (required for mixed mode).
