The solution is quite simple here. In the default profile the rights on the Configuration*.sqm (Configuration15316_100.sqm) file isn´t correct. To fix that issue do the following:

1.) Goto C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v15\

2.) select one from the *.sqm files and enable the inheritance in the security options

3.) Perform the step 2 for all the other *.sqm files

4.) Retry the login
