Step 2: Configure Collaboration Services

Once a Collaboration Services instance is installed in each forest, you need to configure each instance to fit your environment.

Use the synchronization settings to fine-tune the interaction between Active Directory, Exchange, and Collaboration Services instances, and the connectivity between the synchronization partners. To open the Collaboration Services Properties dialog box, select the Collaboration Services node in the management tree and Properties from its shortcut menu.

Set up conflict resolution rules

You can choose either automatic or manual conflict resolution:

Check namespace settings

Carefully check the namespace settings after deployment. During the setup, Collaboration Services automatically populates namespaces with values from the Exchange organization’s recipient policies. Using the wrong namespaces may result in incorrect mail forwarding or an inability to create the stub objects at all. Refer to the Quest Collaboration Services User Guide for more information on using namespaces.

Step 3: Publish test collections

Once the Collaboration Services instances are configured in each of the forests, you can publish a test collection from each forest. The test collections should be published a week before publishing all users objects.

When creating the test collections, you should specify the same synchronization type you are planning to use with regular collections. Depending on your license type, you can create collections of mixed type, Active Directory-only collections, and calendar or free/busy-only collections. For descriptions of these types, see Collections .
