< ^ txtSun Apr 19 11:41:39 EDT 2015 Slept OK, although I went to bed a little late. Need to go into work to finish Exchange and AD upgrade. Goals: Work: - Get basic mail sending and receiving working Done. - Finish moving mailboxes Done. - Install correct SSL cert Done. - Verify client connectivity/authentication Done. - Cleanly decommission temporary intermediate Exchange/AD server Done. - Make sure RDS users have an obvious way to get their mail in the morning Done. - Get a clean backup image of each of the new vm's Done. Home: - Drink beer Done. - Don't stay up too late Questions: - In Exchange, what's a Mail User (as opposed to a Mail Contact)? While a mail contact is just contact info (and doesn't even necessarily represent someone who belongs to your organization), a mail user is a real account (security principal) that happens to not have Exchange mail. This terminology is confusing; real users who have Exchange accounts are called "Mail Enabled Users" while real users without Exchange are called "Mail Users". We can convert a mail user to a Mail Enabled User (i.e. give them Exchange access) with: Get-MailUser <user name> | Enable-Mailbox in EMC.
