Step 5: Configure and test connections among Notes/Domino, O365 and CMN's FBC Web Server

Before running any of CMN’s F/B Connector subcomponents, you must synchronize Notes/Domino users as Office 365 contacts, and O365 users to Domino. CMN’s Directory Connector does not support directory synchronizations directly between Domino and Office 365. In this non-hybrid O365 scenario, however, you can configure Microsoft’s Azure AD Sync synchronization tool to synchronize a local AD with Office 365 for this purpose. See Microsoft’s Azure documentation for instructions and guidance in this synchronization.

Configure and verify the link from Offi ce 365 to the domains/subdomains supported by the Domino Server. This procedure tests whether the certificate on the CMN Web Server is trusted by O365

For FBC coexistence with Office 365, run Enable-OrganizationCustomization, and then create the availability address space by opening a PowerShell session and using the following commands:

New-AvailabilityConfig –OrgWideAccount <username@domain.onmicrosoft.com>
[replace <username@domain.onmicrosoft.com> with your O365 admin account]
$domain = "<domain.onmicrosoft.com>"
[replace <domain.onmicrosoft.com> with your SMTP domain name in Office 365]
$adminUserId = "<username@domain.onmicrosoft.com>"
[replace <username@domain.onmicrosoft.com> with your O365 admin account]
$adminCredsId = "<username@domain.onmicrosoft.com>"
[replace <username@domain.onmicrosoft.com> with your O365 admin account]
$adminCredsPassword = "<YourPassword>"
[replace <YourPassword> with your Office 365 admin password]

You can use Network Load Balancing to permit multiple web servers to handle Autodiscover requests. This is optional, not required to deploy CMN. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

Configure DNS to point autodiscover.<smtpdomain.com> to the computer where CMN’s Autodiscover service is installed. For each domain, Office 365 connects to predefined Autodiscover URLs using DNS host entries.

For Office 365 to get free/busy information from the domain supported by a Domino server, through the CMN Free/Busy Connector, you must make the CMN Autodiscover Web Service resolvable to this URL:

 

Appendix: FBC Planning Worksheet

Use this worksheet to gather and organize the information you will need to enter into CMN’s Management Console application to configure the Free/Busy Connector (FBC).

QCalCon Domino Server Task | Qcalcon Settings

| Qcalcon Settings

Gateway Mail File Name: Name of the gateway mailbox DB on the Domino server (e.g., mail.box). This should be the same as the Calendar system name.

Quest Exchange Free/Busy Connector Host Name: Name of the computer running the Exchange Free/Busy Connector Service.

Notes F/B Connector | Domino Free/Busy Settings

| Domino Free/Busy Settings

Domino Server Name: Name of the Domino server, used to gather F/B information of Notes users. For example, NotesHost/NotesDomain or NotesHost

Domino User Smtp Domain: Name of the Domino domain. For example, domino.sitraka.com

Domino Id File Path: Use the Browse feature ([...] button) to select the path and filename of the ID file that will be used to request F/B data from Domino, or just enter the path and filename into the text box.
