Verify Exchange Mailbox
This step verifies the Exchange Mail Server accessibility.
- To allow the script to run inside the guest OS of a processed VM, it is required that you have Microsoft PowerShell 3.0, .Net Framework 4.0 and Exchange Server 2010 (or later) installed on each VM for which you enable this step.
- To allow the script to gain access the Exchange Mail Server to verify the Exchange mailbox, the Exchange Server must run Microsoft Exchange Web Services Managed API 2.1 (or later). The script will use the EWS Managed API to access the server.
- To allow the script to verify the Exchange mailbox, the Exchange Mail Server must run Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (or later).
- The account used to run the script must have the ApplicationImpersonation permissions on the Exchange Mail Server. However, keep in mind that once you assign these permissions to the account, the Active Directory synchronization process may take up to 15 minutes for one Active Directory Site (and longer if there are multiple AD Sites involved).
After the synchronization process is over, replicate or back up your Lab Group Domain Controller so the account used to test plans also has the permissions.
For more information on how to manage impersonation rights, see this CodeTwo KB article.
