Adding Microsoft On-Premises Exchange Organization

To add a new On-Premises Microsoft Exchange organization, do the following:

  1. Select the Microsoft Exchange checkbox and click Next.

Adding Microsoft On-premises Exchange

  1. Specify Microsoft Exchange server EWS endpoint URL. For example, e.mail.mycompany.com. If necessary, contact your Exchange administrator to know the URL. If the server requires SSL connection, select Use SSL.

Select to skip one or several verification steps using the following checkboxes:

  • Skip certificate trusted authority verification
  • Skip certificate common name verification
  • Skip revocation check
  1. Specify valid credentials to connect to the Microsoft Exchange organization.

The user account must be provided in either of the following formats: domain\account or account@domain. For more information on required permissions, see the Required Permissions section.

  1. Select the Configure User Account checkbox to let Veeam automatically perform the following:
  • Check the connection to the Exchange Web Services (EWS) and PowerShell services.
  • Check if impersonation has been granted. If not, Veeam checks whether the Office 365 organization is in the dehydration state or not. In the latter case Veeam checks the Organization Config role, which allows to activate the dehydration state. Such state can only be applied to the Office 365 organization, when the organization has been created but has never been accessed by the administrator.
  • Check whether the Organization Management and Role Management roles are assigned to the user. These roles are required to grant impersonation.

If you leave this checkbox unchecked, Veeam will perform the following:

  • Check the connection to the Exchange Web Services (EWS) and PowerShell services.
  • Check whether the View-Only Configuration role is assigned to the user to be able to fetch organization parameters such as the organization name and organization ID.
  • Check whether the View-Only Recipient role is assigned to the user to be able to fetch and display organization users.
  • Check whether the ApplicationImpersonation role has been granted.
  1. Select the Configure throttling policy checkbox to check if the throttling policy exists. If not, Veeam checks if the RecipientPolicies role exists. If so, the throttling policy might be assigned to the user.

Adding Microsoft On-premises Exchange

  1. Wait until the connection is established and click Finish.

Some actions might be failing during verification. In this case, a message will be shown under the Status column displaying the reason of the failure.
