Filtering mailbox servers and devices on multiple Cloud Extenders and multiple Exchange ActiveSync Servers

The Cloud Extender® Configuration Tool provides an option that allows an administrator to filter on mailbox servers and devices if the organization is using multiple Cloud Extenders or multiple Exchange ActiveSync Servers.

Note: This feature is supported for Cloud Extender 2.92 and later.

How this setting works

The new settings apply to the following scenarios:

  • If the Cloud Extender is part of a multiple Cloud Extender configuration.
  • If the Cloud Extender is part of a multiple Cloud Extender configuration and that Cloud Extender is the primary Cloud Extender.
  • If filtering options need to be applied to mailbox/device gathering.

These options apply to both multiple and stand-alone Cloud Extender configurations. The 2.92 release of the Cloud Extender does not restrict filtering to mailbox servers when the organization is using multiple Cloud Extenders. You can filter users by domain, OU, or mailbox server regardless of whether you are using a single or multiple Cloud Extender setups.

New Cloud Extender Configuration Tool settings

The two advanced Exchange ActiveSync Server windows provide the following actions for the administrator:
  • Filtering users/devices by domain, OU, or mailbox servers
  • Setting the Cloud Extender as the primary Cloud Extender

New warning message

A warning message is now displayed if the Cloud Extender is part of a multiple Cloud Extender configuration and there is more than one primary Cloud Extender.

Warning message for multiple Cloud Extenders
The following scenarios apply to this setting:
  • A new warning message is displayed when two primary Cloud Extenders are present.
  • If a Cloud Extender is not marked as the primary Cloud Extender, then no warning message is displayed.
  • If a Cloud Extender is marked as the primary Cloud Extender, but no other Cloud Extenders are marked as a primary Cloud Extender, then no warning message is displayed.
  • If a Cloud Extender is marked as the primary Cloud Extender, and another Cloud Extender is marked as a primary Cloud Extender, then a warning message is displayed.
