Note: ActiveRoles Server 6.9 no longer requires the Exchange Management tool installed on the machine running ActiveRoles Administration Service. 6.9 normally uses the Remote PowerShell to administer Exchange 2013 and 2010. However, if you are using PowerShell cmdlets (scripts) that explicity require the Exchange Management Tools, then please review this article on how to use remoting in PowerShell:
Configure ActiveRoles Server to use remote Shell for Exchange 2010:
- Log on as an ActiveRoles Admin to the computer running the Administration Service. Normally, your logon account must belong to the Administrators local group on that computer.
- On the computer running the Administration Service, execute the script attached to this article
- Enable remote Shell for the user account that the Administration Service uses to access the Active Directory domain where Exchange Server is installed (the account under which the Administration Service is running or, if specified, the override account). Update that user account by using the Set-User cmdlet with the RemotePowerShellEnabled parameter set to $True. For details, see "Enable Remote Exchange Management Shell for a User" at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dd298084(exchg.141).aspx.
- (OPTIONAL) Uninstall the Exchange 2010 management tools from the computer running the Administration Service
- Restart the Administration Service. At a command prompt, enter the following command: net stop arssvc && net start arssvc
When working with Microsoft Exchange 2013, skip steps 1 and 2 above.
NOTE: This configuration change is stored in the ActiveRoles Server Configuration Database, and will affect all instance of ActiveRoles Server which share the same database or which share a replicated database.
