Management Console screen:QCalCon Domino Server Task | Qcalcon Settings

The values on this screen provide information needed by the Qcalcon server task to communicate with the Quest Exchange Free/Busy Connector Service.

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.

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

CMN Exchange Free/Busy Connector Service Endpoint: This field is filled by CMN and cannot be edited. The value is derived from the Host Name value.

[Test] button: Click the Test button if you want to test the connection to the Endpoint entry. The Management Console will post a dialog box with the test results. Click OK to clear the dialog box.

Management Console screen:Notes F/B Connector | 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 Fetch Interval In Minutes: Interval between requests for new users, a value from 15 to 1440 inclusive.

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

SMTP Domain Mappings: Used when the domain specified in Notes for a Notes user's email address is different from the domain specified for the same Notes user on an Exchange system, and to enforce a match between the AD target­address values and users’ actual Domino email addresses. For example, if the user’s email address in Notes is JohnSmith@notesdomain.com, and his email address in Exchange is JohnSmith@exchgdomain.com, then an SMTP domain mapping would be created for exchgdomain.com=notesdomain.com. Then when Outlook does a F/B search for JohnSmith@exchgdomain.com, the CMN F/B Connector translates the Notes request to JohnSmith@notesdomain.com. SMTP Domain Mappings are used only for Exchange-to-Notes F/B queries. You can Add, Edit or Remove domain-mapped pairs in the table, as noted below.

NOTE: If you will use Exchange public folders to enable CMN Free/Busy features for Outlook 2003 clients, and you will use subdomains for mail routing: The F/B Connector uses the AD attribute targetAddress to query the Domino system for F/B information for a Domino contact in Exchange. If CMN’s Directory Connector has altered the targetAddress to facilitate mail routing, you must use this SMTP Domain Mappings feature to restore a match between the targetAddress value and the actual Domino email address of the user.

In the Directory Connector’s Connector Creation Wizard (for an E-to-N connector), on the Target Location Information screen, the Notes Internal Routing Domain checkbox and text box are typically used to convert the targetAddress value to facilitate mail routing in a multi-domain environment.

[Add] button: Permits the addition to the table of a new SMTP domain-mapped pair.
[Edit] button: Select an existing domain-mapped pair in the table and click [Edit] to change either of the domain values.
[Remove] button: Select an existing domain-mapped pair in the table and click [Remove] to delete it.

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.

Domino Password: Password associated with the ID File entered above.

Management Console screen:Notes F/B Connector | CMN Web Services

NOTE: The settings on this screen apply only if you will use CMN’s Autodiscover and EWS web services. These components are required for F/B features if you will not use Exchange public folders to accommodate Outlook 2003 clients, but are otherwise optional. See the Exchange public folders information in chapters 2 and 3 of the FBC Scenarios Guide (see step 3 in either chapter) to determine which configuration best suits your environment and needs.

These values configure the CMN Web services.

Web Service Prefix: The first element of the name of the web service for the Domino Free/Busy Connector component. Typically this value is autodiscover, but this field permits an alternate web service prefix, to accommodate F/B coexistence with Exchange 2013 or Office 365 (Wave 14 or 15) where the prefix is configurable.

CMN Autodiscover Host Name: Host configured in DNS to run the CMN services and return Domino F/B information.

CMN Autodiscover URL: Pre-filled by CMN with the correct value derived from the Host Name entry above. This field cannot be edited.

[Test] button: Click Test if you want to test the connection to the URL in the adjacent field. The Management Console will post a dialog box with the test results. Click OK to clear the dialog box.

CMN EWS URL: The URL to the Quest Free/Busy Connector’s EWS. For example: https://<HostName>/EWS/Service.asmx

[Test] button: Click Test if you want to test the connection to the URL in the adjacent field. The Management Console will post a dialog box with the test results. Click OK to clear the dialog box.

EMS command: Pre-filled by CMN. This command must be run in the Exchange Management Shell to permit Free/Busy lookups to flow from Exchange to CMN.

CMN Domino Free/Busy Connector Host Name: Name of the computer where the Domino Free/Busy Connector is installed—typically this same computer (localhost).

Domino Free/Busy Service Endpoint: Pre-filled by CMN with the correct value derived from the Host Name entry above. This field cannot be edited.

[Test] button: Click Test if you want to test the connection to the Endpoint value in the adjacent field. The Console will post a dialog box with the test results. Click OK to clear the dialog box.

Management Console screen:Exchange F/B Connector | Exchange Free/Busy

Exchange Server Location: Select one of these three radio buttons to tell CMN’s F/B Connector how to route free/busy queries to the coexisting Exchange environment—by EWS Endpoint, by Autodiscover Endpoint, or by Autodiscover Only.

Specify your choice by selecting one of these methods:

EWS Endpoint: Select this option if you will coexist with Exchange 2007, or with an on-premises Exchange 2013 or 2010 environment with a single Exchange EWS whose location (URL) is fixed relative to CMN’s Exchange FBC service. This approach typically yields the best performance of the three options, but is the least flexible since the connection will fail if the Exchange EWS is not at the specified URL. If you select this option, you must also specify:
Exchange EWS Host Name: Name of the Exchange server where EWS requests should be sent.
EWS URL: Location of Microsoft EWS web service on the Exchange server.

In an Exchange environment with a single EWS at a known fixed location (URL), you can point the FBC service directly to the E‘WS by specifying the EWS URL and host name. If there is no single Exchange EWS with a known fixed location, the FBC service can query the Exchange Autodiscover service, which tracks and reports the current location of an available EWS.

If you will coexist with an Exchange environment where you don't know the location of either the EWS or the Autodiscover endpoint, the CMN FBC service will have to search the network for the connection.

Autodiscover Endpoint: Select this option if you have an on-premises Exchange 2013 or 2010 environment with multiple Exchange EWS endpoints (for example, in a load-balanced environment) and you have an Exchange Autodiscover service that can determine which EWS endpoint to use. This can also be the best choice to coexist with Microsoft's hosted Office 365 (see the Office 365 notes below). Performance will be slower than if you direct the FBC service to a fixed-location EWS (above), but will still be faster than if neither the EWS nor the Autodiscover value is specified (below). If you select this option, you must also specify:
Exchange Autodiscover URL: Location of Autodiscover service on the Exchange server (or, for O365, of the MS Autodiscover URL, as noted below).
NOTE: If coexisting with Microsoft’s Office 365: Select the Autodiscover Endpoint option and set the Exchange Autodiscover URL to Microsoft’s Autodiscover URL:

Note, however, that this is a Microsoft URL subject to change, in which case this connection and the Free/Busy Connector would fail. Remember this if you set the Exchange Autodiscover URL to the Microsoft URL, and CMN’s F/B Connector works fine for a time but then suddenly and consistently fails. The most likely cause is a change in Microsoft’s Autodiscover URL. Contact Microsoft to get the new URL, or select Autodiscover Only (below) instead.

Autodiscover Only: Select this option if you will coexist with an Exchange 2013 or 2010 environment where you don't know the location of either the EWS or Autodiscover, such as in Microsoft's Office 365. In this case, the FBC service will search the network for the connection it needs, so this is the most flexible option, but it is also somewhat slower than either alternative above.

Regardless of your selection for Exchange Server Location, all of the fields listed below appear on this screen.

Exchange Online: Mark this checkbox only if you are configuring coexistence with Microsoft’s Office 365 hosted Exchange services. If you are configuring coexistence with a local, on-premises Exchange server, make sure this checkbox is unmarked.

Exchange Username: Admin account the F/B Connector should use to access data and features in a hosted Exchange environment. Leave this field empty unless you are connecting to a hosted Exchange, or to a local on-premises Exchange that isn't in the same domain as the CMN admin server. In those cases an entry here is mandatory.

Exchange Password: Password associated with the Exchange Username entered above—again, enter this value only if connecting to a hosted Exchange, or to a local on-premises Exchange that isn't in the same domain as the CMN admin server. In those cases an entry here is mandatory.

Show Tentative As Busy: Select Yes or No to indicate whether Tentative F/B status in Outlook should appear as Busy in Notes.
