User Import

Can Unity import users from Exchange servers in different sites that are connected by a Site Connector? Or does there need to be a separate Unity server for each site in the organization?<br>Thanks. <br><br>

Re: User Import

no, you can't import users from other sites. Exchange does not allow us to log into mailboxes and monitor/retrieve messages from user's accounts across a site connector, we can only send message TO mailboxes outside our site using the MTA.

Each site in your organization will need to have a Unity server to provide voice mail services for those folks.

Re: User Import

Quick follow up.
This customer is going to put an additional Unity server in another Exchange site. Are there any issues to look out for? Any problems with having different versions of Unity running in different sites within the same Organization?
Thanks.

Re: User Import

If you're not going to use the "digital networking" feature between the two Unity servers, there's no problems here if they're installed into different sites. If they were in the same site and you were dealing with pre 2.4.0 boxes, you could have a problem since some of the default entities would conflict with one another at the site level (i.e. they'd "share" an alpha directory, which causes all kinds of interesting problems).

There shouldn't be any problems networking, say, a 2.4.5 and a 2.3.6 system across Exchange sites, but if you're looking to be safe I would reccomend making sure they are both 2.4.0 or later if you can.
