  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, Deployment and Migration SP1 and SP2 – 6 – Deployment and Interoperability Guidelines for the Active Directory Connector
    Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Deployment and Migration SP1 and SP2, 2006
    Co-Authors: Kieran Mccorry

    Abstract:

    This chapter explores the functionality aspects of Active Directory Connector usage in a coexisting Exchange 5.5 and Active Directory environment. The objects contained in the Active Directory organizational units are mapped to a single container on the target Exchange 5.5 server; then the standard legacy Exchange Directory replication model allows this container to be seen across all legacy Exchange sites. When the Active Directory Connector synchronizes an Exchange 5.5 distribution list over to the Active Directory, it always creates a mail-enabled universal distribution group as the synchronized object. Distributing Active Directory Connectors implies the use of a set of connection agreements per Active Directory Connector that synchronizes Exchange 5.5 containers and Active Directory organizational units closer to one and in a timely fashion. An Active Directory Connector hosts a connection agreement that synchronizes data over a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) connection, typically between separate Exchange 5.5 and Active Directory servers.

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, Deployment and Migration SP1 and SP2 – 2 – Active Directory Connector Synchronization
    Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 Deployment and Migration, 2004
    Co-Authors: Kieran Mccorry

    Abstract:

    This chapter explores the basic operation of the Active Directory Connector, and how it synchronizes data from Exchange 5.5 to Active Directory and vice versa. A clear and complete understanding of Active Directory Connector operation is the key to any Exchange 5.5-to-Exchange 2003 migration project. The Active Directory Connector is one of the most powerful tools available to the messaging consultant. Exchange 2003 doesn’t have its own built-in Directory service; instead it uses the Active Directory. During a migration exercise from a legacy Exchange 5.5 environment to Exchange 2003, one of the most important aspects of coexistence is that of synchronizing Directory information between the Exchange 5.5 Directory Service and the Windows 2003 Active Directory. The Active Directory Connector does this, as it maps the Exchange 5.5 Directory Service object types to the Active Directory, and vice versa. The Active Directory Connector available with Exchange 2003 is not that much different from the Active Directory Connector that was available with Exchange 2000. The core functionality remains more or less the same, and only minor aspects of its operation have changed, and it includes a number of bug fixes.

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, Deployment and Migration SP1 and SP2 – 3 – Advanced Active Directory Connector Configuration
    Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 Deployment and Migration, 2004
    Co-Authors: Kieran Mccorry

    Abstract:

    This chapter discusses some lesser known configuration options that can be set on the Active Directory Connector to give a greater flexibility with Active Directory Connector synchronization. Two different mechanisms control the selection of objects for Active Directory Connector synchronization: using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) search filters, and using Active Directory Connector custom object matching. While the Active Directory Connector has been in existence since Exchange 2000 first hit the streets, the Active Directory Connector has undergone quite a few refinements over the years, so the version of the Active Directory Connector that we use today with Exchange 2003 is much more powerful than earlier versions. Many bug fixes have been applied silently to the Active Directory Connector, and there has been significant behind-the-scenes functionality enhancement, most notably the increased functionality to support cross-site mailbox moves introduced with Exchange 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
