Verify Microsoft Exchange credentials
Here are requirements for accounts used to access Exchange on target servers:
- The account must be a domain account.
- To modify IIS and PowerShell settings on the Exchange server, the account must be a Local Administrator.
- SolarWinds recommends using accounts that are not part of the Domain Administrators group. You can add a custom domain security group to define a specific type of administrator with specific permissions to the Local Administrators group. In large environments, use Group Policy Objects (GPOs). For smaller environments, you can perform create security groups manually.
To verify Exchange credentials, run this PowerShell cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell (EMS):
Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -RoleAssignee “USER_IDENTITY”
Install PowerShell 5.1 or later on target servers, if necessary.
