Working with Exchange Server

Working with Exchange Server

This section describes how to create or modify a connection to Microsoft Exchange Server so that Synchronization Service could read and write data in that data system. This section also describes what data you can read and/or write in Exchange Server by using Synchronization Service.

To create a connection to Microsoft Exchange Server, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector called Exchange Server Connector. This connector is included in the Synchronization Service package.

The Exchange Server Connector supports the following features:

 

Table 26: Supported features

  2. Click Add connection, and then do the following:
    1. In the Connection name box, type a descriptive name for the connection.
    2. From the Use the specified connector list, select Exchange Server Connector.
    3. Click Next.
  3. On the Specify connection settings page, use the following options:
    1. Select the Exchange Server version to which you want to connect. Select the Exchange Server version to which you want to connect. If you select the Automatically select latest version option, the connector searches your environment for available Exchange Server 2016, 2013, or 2010, and connects to the latest of these versions found. Use the Automatically select latest version option only together with the Any available Exchange Server in the forest option.
    2. Connect to. Choose how you want to connect to Exchange Server by selecting one of the following:
      • Any available Exchange Server in the forest. Allows you to connect to any available Exchange Server computer residing in the Active Directory forest you specify. In the Domain in the forest text box, type the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of any domain that belongs to the forest that includes the Exchange Server you want to connect to. If you select this option, make sure the account you specify under Access Exchange Server using has sufficient permissions to read the Root Directory Service Entry (rootDFS) and configuration naming context of the forest.
      • Specified Exchange Server. Allows you to connect to the Exchange Server computer whose fully qualified domain name (FQDN) you type in the provided text box.
    • Advanced. Opens a dialog box that allows you to specify advanced options for connecting to Exchange Server and reading and writing Exchange configuration data in Active Directory.
      • Options related to reading and writing Exchange configuration data in Active Directory:
        • Use default domain controller. Causes Synchronization Service to read and write Exchange configuration data in Active Directory by using the default domain controller defined on the Exchange Server used for the connection.
        • Use specified domain controller. Causes Synchronization Service to read and write Exchange configuration data in Active Directory by using the domain controller whose FQDN is specified in the text box below this option.
      • Options related to connecting to Exchange Server:
