Refer to the sections below for instructions specific to your target server.
Specify the following values to connect to the Office 365 target email service:
Auto-discovery uses your login credentials to automatically obtain the server name during a migration. With auto-discovery, On Demand Migration for Email connects directly to the Office 365 auto-discovery endpoints, meaning that you don't have to configure your DNS to take advantage of auto-discovery. You do need to make sure that all your mailboxes exist in Office 365 before migrating data into them.
To migrate data to Office 365, your administrator account must have Application Impersonation rights, which means the account must be assigned to a Role-Based Access Control group that has Application Impersonation rights. For more information, see Preparing Your Target Email Service for Migration.
Specify the following values to connect to your Exchange 2010/2013/2016/2019 target email service:
If you are not using HTTPS for Outlook Web Access (OWA), enter the full URL for your EWS service, e.g., http://servername/EWS/Service.ASMX.
If you are using SSL, enter the name of your Exchange 2010/2013/2016/2019 server manually (e.g., exchange.example.com).
Note: If your server does not support SSL, all mailbox data will be transmitted non-encrypted. Use SSL connections if possible to secure your data. ODME supports self-signed SSL certificates. For information on generating a properly formatted self-signed SSL certificate, see Using Self-Signed SSL Certificates.
If you are having problems with auto-discovery, you can test your external connectivity using a free tool from Microsoft. The following website can be used to validate if your services are working properly. Please go to https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com to test your Exchange connectivity.
The Admin User Name value is the account's UPN or domain credentials (e.g., domain\username). For more information about UPNs and how to determine which domain you are using for your users, please see Active Directory naming on the Microsoft Technet site.
When using self-signed SSL certificates to connect to an email service provider, the Issued By and Subject fields must match.
To generate a properly formatted certificate for Windows-based systems, use the SelfSSL utility packaged with the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit (available for download on http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17275) and execute a command with the following syntax:
selfssl.exe /n:CN=autodiscover.domain.com /v:9999
Where /n: defines the Subject (which needs to match the issuer) and /v: is the number of days for which the cert is valid.
To generate a properly formatted certificate for Linux-based systems, use the OpenSSL utility (available for download on http://www.openssl.org/) and execute the following commands:
KEY + REQUEST
openssl req -out domain.com.csr -new -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout domain.com.key
openssl x509 -req -days 2000 -text -in domain.com.csr -signkey domain.com.key -out domain.com.crt
CONVERT CRT KEY TO PFX
openssl pkcs12 -export -out domain.com.pfx -inkey domain.com.key -in domain.com.crt
