Configure and Test Exchange 2013+ Connections

Article ID: 1690
Last updated: 01 Apr, 2020

This procedure involves running the “Microsoft Exchange” connection wizard to create an Identity Maestro connection to a target Exchange mailbox server. This procedure should detect all on-premise Exchange mailbox servers and build a unique connection for each server.  Use this procedure for creating connections to Exchange 2013 or higher versions. 

This procedure requires an Active Directory connection to the AD domain that hosts the Exchange system.  This procedure will not create connection to commercially hosted Exchange systems.

Applies to:

  • Identity Maestro 4.1.1+

Getting Started

Prior to starting, ensure that the following system requirements have been met:

  • an Active Directory connection to the AD domain that hosts the Exchange system,
  • if connecting to Exchange 2016, ensure that .NET 4.6.2 or higher is installed in the Identity Maestro host server,
  • if connecting to Exchange 2013 CU15 or higher, ensure that .NET 4.6.1 or higher is installed in the Identity Maestro host server,
  • if connecting to Exchange 2013 CU15 or higher, ensure that remote Powershell is enabled on the Exchange server.  See How to Reenable Remote Powershell on Exchange 2013 CU15+ Servers,
  • If Identity Maestro is hosted on Windows 2016 or Windows 2019, modify the "Omni.Service.Connection.x64.config" file to avoid a connection error.  See Add a Newtonsoft.Json Binding to the "Omni.Services.Connection.x64.config" fileThis is no longer a requirement for Identity Maestro 4.1.2+.
  • that you can logon to the Exchange Admin Console of the target Exchange server using a browser on the Identity Maestro host server.

Create an Exchange Connection

To create the Exchange Mailbox server connection(s):

  1. Locate and launch the Identity Maestro Connection Utility.

  2. Under "New Connection..." click the "Microsoft Exchange" button.

  3. In the “Welcome to Microsoft Exchange Connection Wizard” window, click Next >.

  4. In the “Choose Active Directory Connections” window, select those AD domain connections where Exchange servers are installed and click Next >.

  5. Under Select Connection To Add, check only Exchange 2013 and 2016 Mailbox Databases you want to add and click Next >.

  6. In the “Configuration Results” window, click Finish to close the wizard and create the Exchange mailbox server connection(s).

  7. This will add the Exchange connections below the Active Directory connections.

  8. Double-click the Exchange connection. The General page display information about the Exchange server. Select the Remote Agent tab.  

  9. Select the Remote Agent tab.  Click the Test button.


    A successful test indicates that the ServiceControl Connection Agent  x64 Windows service is running.  If the test is not successful, start the service.

    Click OK to Save close the window.

  10. Select File and Update Exchange Agent Settings.  This will write the connection settings to the .config file.


    If there are multiple Exchange connections, an additional menu will appear.  Select each Exchange connection.  Repeat the process until all Exchange 2013 and 2016 server connections have been updated.

  11. In Windows Services, stop and restart the ServiceControl Connection Agent x64 service.
