Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-07-21

You can use organization relationships to securely share calendar availability (free/busy) information with recipients outside your Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization.

Looking for other management tasks related to federated delegation? Check out Managing Federated Delegation.

Before organization relationships can work, you must first configure a federation trust with the Microsoft Federation Gateway. For more information, see Understanding Federation.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Organization relationships" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, click Organization Configuration.

  2. In the result pane, click the Organization Relationships tab, and then select the organization relationship you want to configure.

  3. In the action pane, under the organization relationship name, click Properties.

  4. Use the General tab to view or modify general organization relationship settings:

    • Name   This unlabeled box displays the name of the organization relationship. You can modify this name.

    • Modified   This read-only field indicates the date and time when the organization policy was created or modified.

    • Enable this organization relationship   Clear this check box to disable the organization relationship.

    • Enable free/busy information access   Clear this check box to specify that this organization relationship shouldn't be used for retrieving free/busy information from the external Exchange organization.

    • Specify free/busy data access level   If you selected the Enable free/busy information access check box, you can select one of the following options from this list to specify what type of free/busy information should be retrieved from the external Exchange organization:

      No free/busy access

      Free/busy access with time only

      Free/busy access with time, plus subject and location

    • Specify a security distribution group that indicates what internal users free/busy data is accessible   Select this check box if you want to specify a distribution group to list your users who can have their free/busy information accessed by the external Exchange organization. Use the corresponding box to type the SMTP address of a security distribution group within your organization, or click Browse to search for the group.

  5. Use the External Organization tab to view or modify the information required to set up the organization relationship with an external federated Exchange organization using the following fields:

    • Automatically discover configuration information   Click this button to have Exchange locate the configuration information of the external Exchange organization by using Autodiscover.

      Specify a federated domain of the external Exchange organization   If you clicked Automatically discover configuration information, use this box to specify a federated domain of the external Exchange organization (for example, contoso.com). You can't specify more than one domain. Information about domains federated by the remote organization is published by using the Exchange 2010 Autodiscover Web service endpoints.

    • Manually enter the configuration information   Click this button if you want to manually provide the configuration information for the external Exchange organization.

      Federated domains of the external Exchange organization   Use this box to type the federated domain names of the external Exchange organization. The organization you're establishing an organization relationship with may have more than one federated domain. After you type each domain name, click Add to add the name to the list of domains. The organization relationship applies to only the federated domains listed on this tab.

      Edit   Select a domain name from the list, and then click this button to modify it.

      Remove icon   Select a domain name from the list, and then click this button to remove it from the organization relationship.

      Application URI of the external Exchange organization   Use this box to type the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the external Exchange organization's application server (for example, mail.contoso.com). A URI is a string of characters used to identify or name a resource. In this case, the application URI is used when requesting a delegated token for the external Exchange organization to retrieve free/busy information.

      Autodiscover endpoint of the external Exchange organization   Use this box to type the Autodiscover URL of the external Exchange organization's Exchange Web Services (for example, https://contoso.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.svc/wssecurity). Exchange uses the Autodiscover service to automatically detect the correct Client Access server endpoint.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Organization relationships" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example adds the domain name woodgrovebank.co.uk to the organization relationship WoodgroveBank.

$domains = (Get-OrganizationRelationship WoodgroveBank).DomainNames
$domains += 'woodgrovebank.co.uk'
Set-OrganizationRelationship -Identity WoodgroveBank -DomainNames $domains

This example disables the organization relationship WoodgroveBank.

Set-OrganizationRelationship -Identity WoodgroveBank -Enabled $false

This example enables calendar availability (free/busy) information access for the organization relationship WoodgroveBank and sets the access level to Free/busy access with time only.

Set-OrganizationRelationship -Identity WoodgroveBank -FreeBusyAccessEnabled $true -FreeBusyAccessLevel AvailabilityOnly

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-OrganizationRelationship and Get-OrganizationRelationship.
