How do I assign mailboxes when I create user accounts? (Discover Forest / Exchange Info)

2017-05-17 20:35:54
Active Directory Exchange 20xx UnitySync 

This solution applies to connections syncing to an Ex20xx destination, creating User accounts.

Note: If you already have accounts created by UnitySync you can assign them manually or contact Support for further assistance.

In the UnitySync User Interface (UI), you must run a Simulation of your new connection. Open the Sim log and locate the values logged under MTA, MDB, and Exchange Org Name.

This is how it may apear in the log:

Destination Configuration Discovery : 10/18/2011 12:43:11 PM
Exchange Org Name | 2k10 Organization
MTA               | CN=Microsoft MTA,CN=WIN-41O5ND975TN,CN=Servers,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=2k10 Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=2k10,DC=test
MDB               | CN=Mailbox Database 0646043688,CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=2k10 Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=2k10,DC=test

Follow these instructions to create a custom map file. These values (examples below; use your own values) must be entered into your custom object map file as follows:

msExchHomeServerName=2k10 Organization

homeMTA=CN=Microsoft MTA,CN=WIN-41O5ND975TN,CN=Servers,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=2k10 Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=2k10,DC=test

homeMDB=CN=Mailbox Database 0646043688,CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=2k10 Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=2k10,DC=test

In the map file, be sure each long line is copied without spaces or returns. Each should appear on one long line.

NOTE: This is information is needed by UnitySync to assign a mailbox to newly created users. Make sure you copy over the ENTIRE line for each attribute. If more than one value is discovered, you must decide which is appropriate for applying to this connection and copy just that one set of data. You need to select one of each and add it to your custom map file.

Save your custom map file changes.

From here you can run the Sync and mailboxes will be assigned as you create accounts.
