Hi Team,

I am looking for more info on how to setup Saviynt to create and enable a new mailbox to exchange on premise for an account.

Have gone through documentation, but unsure where and how the Win PS connector operates and where does it get it's PS script from.

Any experts on here that is able to give us a better understanding of how this is setup. Documentation is lacking to explain the complete procedure and possibilities like creating alias' etc

Thanks in advance

Thank for the links Srinivas

We have gone through the documentation before posting here, still not sure where Win-PS get installed and where scripts comes from. 

Can this Saviynt agent be installed on any server in the environment or should it be installed on Exchange?

Really have no clue where to start here.

Hi , 

please install Saviynt agent one remote machine where you have scripts placed . Also you need to have IIS setup as instructed in document . 
you need to write powershell scripts as per requirement to create mailbox(or enable ) 

1) prepare powershell script 

2) install Saviynt agent as per document 

3) create Win Ps connector or REST connector 

4) configure JSON and mention the server details where script is placed and call the script (/filepath/<nameofAgentimstalledbywhatname>/PS/executescript )

save connection and try calling endpoint . 

 

Thanks

Also , mail,mailNickname,proxy addresses  and all are set default once mailbox is enabled . 
it is all managed in script 

1) enable-remotemailbox 

2) New Mailbox 

3) Set-remotemailbox 

4) set-mailbox 

 

all depends on how and where you want to create mailboxes on premise or off premise (on cloud) 

please refer documentation from Microsoft in commands to use for powershell. 


let me know for any concerns . 

thanks

Thanks for the responses everyone.

Customer now indicated that they would rather have new mailboxes in Exchange online. From Saviynt documentation I see that this involves assigning a license in O365 which will obviously create the mailbox.

How does this work from Saviynt however? Is WinPS connector still required sa we are not doing anything in On Premise exchange?

Thanks in advance

yes WinPs connection will be required
