Prerequisite conditions

This section summarizes the prerequisite conditions that must be met before you deploy Exchange Resource Forest Management.

Exchange Server deployment

Exchange Resource Forest Management requires Exchange 2013 or later to be deployed in the Exchange forest.

Exchange Server should not be installed in the accounts forests. The Active Directory schema in the accounts forests does not need to be extended with the Exchange Server attributes.

A trust between the Exchange forest and the accounts forest must be set up before you can use Exchange Resource Forest Management. At a minimum, an outgoing trust must be set up so that the Exchange forest trusts the accounts forest.

For more information, see "Learn more about setting up a forest trust to support linked mailboxes" at

Active Roles deployment

Active Roles deployment

The following Active Roles components must be installed in your Active Directory environment:

  • Administration Service
  • Web Interface
  • Active Roles console

You can install these components on member servers in an accounts forest or in the Exchange forest. For installation instructions, see the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.

Log on as ARS Admin

Log on as Active Roles Admin

To configure Exchange Resource Forest Management, log on as Active Roles Admin. This ensures that you have sufficient rights to make the necessary configuration changes. Assuming the default configuration of the Active Roles Administration Service, you should log on with a domain user account that is a member of the Administrators group on the computer running the Administration Service.
