5-2: Configure Exchange server connections

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

... where <smtpdomain> is the name of the Domino domain.
Open a web browser and enter the URL http://autodiscover.<domain>/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml to ensure that the Exchange server resolves it to the CMN FBC EWS without any certification errors.
Click the SSL button in the Web browser, then click View Certificates.
Click Import, then Finish.

If you requested a certificate from a public CA, the certificate is already trusted by Exchange.

For F/B coexistence with an Exchange 2013 in a single-namespace environment: On all servers running a mailbox role, modify the hostfile to add the IP address and host name of the CMN Autodiscover.

To enable shared SMTP namespace F/B lookups in the Exchange-to-Notes direction, add the CMN F/B Web Services IP address to the host file on the Exchange CAS server.

5-3: Configure DNS

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.<> to the computer where CMN’s Autodiscover service is installed. For each domain, Exchange connects to predefined Autodiscover URLs using DNS host entries.

For Exchange 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:

On-premises Exchange or hybrid O365 using separate namespaces

Follow these steps, in order as presented here, to install and configure CMN’s Free/Busy Connector for on-premises Exchange or a hybrid Office 365 environment with separate (multiple) namespaces:

Remember that the FBC for a hybrid O365 is configured only between Notes/Domino and the local on-premises Exchange, while synchronization of the local Exchange to O365 is configured apart from CMN (and documented separately by Microsoft). Configuration of CMN’s FBC for a hybrid O365 is therefore the same as configuring for a local on-premises Exchange.

Step 1: Plan your FBC installation and configuration

To plan your overall FBC installation and configuration:
