Extensions for Supporting Exchange hybrid

NOTE: This function is only available if the module Exchange Hybrid Module is installed.

NOTE: You cannot move mailboxes between local Microsoft Exchange and Exchange Online with One Identity Manager. Microsoft offers migration scenarios for moving mailboxes. For detailed information, see your Microsoft documentation.

One Identity Manager support creating, editing and deleting of remote mailboxes in Exchange hybrid. Remote mailboxes are mailboxes that are declared in the local Microsoft Exchange environment but were added in an Exchange Online environment.

There are the following different types of remote mailboxes:

  • Remote mailbox
  • Remote room mailbox
  • Remote equipment mailbox

These mailboxes can be added to distribution lists or be given sending limits in the local Microsoft Exchange environment, for example.

NOTE:

The following modules must be present to support Exchange hybrid environments.

  • Active Directory Module
  • Microsoft Exchange Module
  • Azure Active Directory Module
  • Exchange Online Module
  • Exchange Hybrid Module

The synchronization server running the Microsoft Exchange connector is responsible for synchronizing remote mailboxes. The other target system involved (Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Azure Active Directory and Exchange Online) must be synchronized in order to access remote mailboxes.

Advice for Synchronizing Remote Mailboxes

Take the following into account when synchronizing Exchange hybrid remote mailboxes:

  • The mapping for remote mailboxes is part of the Microsoft Exchange project template. Remote mailboxes are synchronized using the Microsoft Exchange connector.
  • If an Exchange hybrid environment already exists but there is no Exchange hybrid module installed, a warning appears when you synchronize. Install the Exchange hybrid module and create a new synchronization project.
  • The following order for is recommended for synchronizing the target systems.
    1. Azure Active Directory
    2. Local Active Directory (in parallel with Azure Active Directory possible)
    3. Exchange Online
    4. Local Microsoft Exchange (after Exchange Online if possible).
  • The connection between local Exchange (EX0Organization) and the corresponding Azure Active Directory tenant (AADOrganization) in One Identity Manager must be set up.

    This connection is normally created automatically when the synchronization project is created for local Microsoft Exchange. This assumes that Azure Active Directory was already loaded in to the One Identity Manager at the time. You can establish this link manually at any time.

    To declare the Azure Active Directory tenant in a Microsoft Exchange organization

    1. Select the category Active Directory | Exchange system administration in the Manager.
    2. Select the organization from the result list.
    3. Select Change master data in the task view.
    4. Select the Azure Active Directory tenant On the Hybrid configuration tab, under Azure Active Directory tenant, which is connected to your local Microsoft Exchange.
    5. Save the changes.
