The Purpose of a Hybrid Deployment of Exchange
 Most folks are used to either an on-premises
deployment or a cloud-only deployment and
even if they have a mixture of the two they
don’t consider managing them through the
same tools by any means
 Exchange 2010 combined with a cloud-based
solution like Office 365 offers an opportunity to
manage both through a single set of tools
 You may want a hybrid deployment for a variety
of practical reasons
• Cost
• Management

The Hybrid Configuration Wizard
 The current set of instructions for Exchange 2010 SP1 is about
50 manual steps (according to the Exchange Team)
• Everything from configuring single sign on to configuring
federated delegation
 The new Hybrid Configuration Wizard Takes the former 50 step
process and makes it a wizard that requires a few clicks and
some information to automate the process
• It sounds easy but it isn’t… planning is the key

The Hybrid Configuration Wizard (cont.)
 The wizard will verify the following:
• Both on-premises and Office 365 meet the prereqs
• Establishes the on-premises federation trust
• Creates organization relationships
• Configures free/busy calendar sharing, message tracking and
MailTips
• Configures secure mail flow between the two
• Enables archiving support
Address Book Policies
(ABPs)

Control Over the Global Address List View
 Even within one organization there are times when
administrators want to control or provide alternate views of the
Global Address List (GAL)
 This segmentation is valuable in larger organizations because it
gives a user the ability to see an address list of persons who are
local instead of the entire GAL, by default
 Address Book Policies is a solution that will allow for Global
Address Segmentation capabilities
• Provides sub-divided address books
• ‘Virtual’ organizations within a single Exchange Organization
Best New Features in Exchange 2010 SP2
Exchange Server 2010 SP2
Address Book Policies (ABPs)
 Replaces the traditional ACL-based GAL segmentation method
 ABPs can be managed through the EMC and EMS
 Allows you to control access based upon attributes (custom,
company, or department – but not distribution list)
 Planning is the key to ABPs
• First you create your Address Lists (ALs), Offline Address
Book (OAB) and additional GAL (if you wish… remember, this
is only done through the EMS)
• Then you associate the ALs, OAB and GAL to a policy
• Finally you apply the policy to users
Outlook Web App Mini

The Purpose of Outlook Web App Mini
 OWA Mini is a super lightweight browser-based client for mobile
devices and it goes right to bare-bones simplicity
 OWA Mini is not a new feature at all, it was in Exchange 2003 as
Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) although the code is brand new
(no reused code from the older version apparently)
 OMA does the basics for us:
• Access to email, calendar, contacts, tasks and the GAL
• Ability to respond to emails, handle meeting requests, create
contacts and tasks and configure Out of Office message (and
more)

Three Redirection Occurrences
 There are several reasons why a user may need to be redirected
within Exchange when working with Outlook Web App and these
include:
• Manual Redirection: When a CAS server has to redirect a
user to another CAS server within the proper AD site that
the user’s mailbox is located
• Temporary Manual Redirection: When the client’s web
browser has old DNS entries where direction is provided
• Legacy Silent Redirection: Silent redirection is used to
connect a user to a mailbox on a legacy version of Exchange
The Pre-SP2 Redirection Process
CAS Site A
Mailbox Site B
Best New Features in Exchange 2010 SP2
Exchange Server 2010 SP2
The Fourth Redirection Process: Cross-Site Silent
 If a user attempts to access OWA through browser using a URL
that connects to a CAS server in a site that is different from the
AD site where the user’s mailbox is being held the redirection
will point the user off to the proper server without manual
intervention
 This is enabled through the Exchange Management Shell using
the following parameter (which supports two values, manual or
silent):
Set-OWAVirtualDirectory -Identity “Globomantics\owa (Default
Web site)" -CrossSiteRedirectType Silent

Pre-SP2 MRSProxy Service Configuration
 To move mailboxes from your on-premises Exchange
environment to Outlook.com or another forest you had to
manually enable the MRSProxy service on the remote Client
Access Server
 To enable the MRSProxy service you had to go into the
config.web file which is located under “c:\Program
Files\Exchange Server\V14\Client Access\exchweb\ews” and
change the parameter to “true”
 It facilitates mailbox move requests and is essential to enable
for cross-forest moves or even to connect to Office 365 for
migration or coexistence scenarios

SP2 Changes to MRSProxy Enabling
 With SP2 you don’t have to go crawling around the config.web
file to enable the service
 With the cmdlets New-WebServicesVirtualDirectory and SetWebServicesVirtualDirectory you can enable the service using
the –MRSProxyEnabled parameter
• You can also use the –MRSProxyMaxConnections parameter
to establish a connection limit
 Here is an example of the cmdlet you type in:
Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity “EWS (Default Web
Site)” -MRSProxyEnabled $true –MRSProxyMaxConnections 50
Disabling Outlook Mailbox
Auto-Mapping

Exchange Server 2010 SP2
Mailbox Auto-Mapping
 With Exchange 2010 SP1 if a user is granted full access to
mailboxes other than his/her own, the Autodiscover service
locates that mailbox (which may be in a different database or
even on a different server entirely) and loads it for the Outlook
user
 If a user were to be granted full access to many mailboxes or
shared mailboxes then performance and stability would come
into question with Outlook

Exchange Server 2010 SP2
Disabling Auto-Mapping with SP2
 With SP2 administrators can disable the auto-mapping feature by
using the Exchange Management Shell (EMS)
 To turn the feature off you use the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet
with the new –Automapping parameter and setting it to $false
 Here is an example of the full command where a person is given
full access to another user’s mailbox but the auto-mapping is
turned off:
Add-MailboxPermission “Shared Mailbox” –User <delegate>
-AccessRight FullAccess –InheritanceType All –Automapping
$false

 There are 5 new multi-valued custom attributes that you can
use to store additional information for mail recipient objects
 The five attributes are ExtensionCustomAttribute1 to
ExtensionCustomAttribute5 and each of these can hold up to
1,300 values
 You can specify values as a comma-delimited list

Litigation Hold Adjustment

Discovery and Litigation Hold
 As a result of both regulatory compliance with a variety of
legislation (ie. Sarbanes Oxley, et. al. ) and the need for easy
discovery in the event of a lawsuit, Microsoft added a feature
into Exchange called Litigation Hold (aka Legal Hold)
 The purpose of Litigation Hold is to prevent a user from deleting
important email correspondence from their own account to
avoid the discovery process
• The negative with regard to the feature is that it must be
enabled so by default users can remove or delete email
 Legal Hold, as an emerging science, required some tweaking,
which is what SP2 provides
Best New Features in Exchange 2010 SP2
Exchange Server 2010 SP2
Litigation Hold and SP2
 With SP2 you can no longer disable or remove a mailbox that
has been placed on litigation hold (that is the new default
behavior)
 This restriction can, however, be bypassed by an administrator
but not without some effort
 An administrator can either remove the hold or can use the new
–IgnoreLegalHold switch parameter when removing or disabling
the mailbox through the Exchange Management Shell (EMS)
• Note: This will be auditable (sort of)
Best New Features in Exchange 2010 SP2

Cmdlets with the New Parameter
 Here is a list of cmdlets that now allow for the new
–IgnoreLegalHold switch parameter
• Disable-Mailbox
• Remove-Mailbox
• Disable-RemoteMailbox
• Remove-RemoteMailbox
• Disable-MailUser
• Remove-MailUser
