134 IBM WebSphere Everyplace Access V5 Handbook for Developers and Administrators Volume III: E-Mail and Database Synchronization
Configuring the Everyplace Synchronization Server for synchronization with
Microsoft Exchange 2000 or 2003 servers involves the following:
Creating Microsoft Exchange users (if they do not already exist)
Managing Everyplace Synchronization Server to check the status of the
servers and optionally configure logging
Configuring the Exchange PIM/e-mail Adapter
Creating a default synchronization setting for the user
Configuring the user’s preferences and linking the user to the default
synchronization profile created in the previous step
Setting up the Exchange portlets for online access to the Exchange server
2.3.1 Create a Microsoft Exchange user
To explain how to synchronize Exchange data we need a set of Everyplace
Access synchronization users with a Microsoft Exchange mailbox.
The following steps will create two mailbox-enabled users on the active directory
in the Exchange server. These users should already exist in the Everyplace
Access server and must belong to the essusers group.
Note that this is a brief explanation of how to create Microsoft Exchange users for
purposes to show Exchange 2000 and 2003 synchronization. In a real
environment, existing Microsoft Exchange users could be imported into
Everyplace Access server using the Bulk Load portlet. Refer to IBM WebSphere
Everyplace Access V5 Handbook for Developers and Administrators Volume I:
Installation and Administration, SG24-6462, for more details about bulk loading
users from existing mail environments.
On the Exchange server, do the following:
1. Open the Active Directory user management interface by selecting Start
→ Microsoft Exchange → Active Directory Users and
2. Right-click Users and select New
Note: WebSphere Everyplace Access Version 5.0 Fix Pack 1 or later is
required to synchronize with Microsoft Exchange 2003 server.
