Exchange Connector Host System Requirements for Windows Intune

Updated: July 1, 2013

Applies To: Windows Intune

The Windows Intune Exchange Connector can be configured for the following scenarios:

  • Windows Intune On-Premises to Exchange On-Premises

  • Windows Intune On-Premises to Exchange Hosted

  • Windows Intune Hosted to Exchange Hosted

noteNote
For the first two scenarios, you will need to download, install and configure the Windows Intune On-Premises Connector. For the third scenario, you will just need to configure the Windows Intune Service to Service Connector that is installed with Windows Intune by default. For more information, see Service to Service Connector Requirements in Windows Intune.

noteNote
To connect to Exchange using the Windows Intune On-Premises Connector, the target Exchange server must be running Exchange 2010 SP1 or later.

Before you set up the Windows Intune Exchange Connector for any of these scenarios, keep in mind the following requirements and considerations:

  • The mobile device management authority determines where you will perform mobile device management tasks. Setting the mobile device management authority is a requirement for mobile device management. We recommend that you deploy the Exchange Connector only in the same environment where you set the mobile device management authority. For information about how to set the mobile device management authority, see Set the Mobile Device Management Authority to Windows Intune.

  • If you also plan to use Windows Intune direct management to manage mobile devices, we recommend that you deploy the Exchange Connector in the same environment where you have configured Windows Intune direct management.

  • Mobile device management works only with managed users. To manage users’ mobile devices, you must first provision the users in Windows Intune. The process of provisioning defines device owners as managed users in Windows Intune. After provisioning is complete, users appear and can be managed in the Windows Intune administrator console. To provision users, you must first configure Active Directory synchronization so that your local users and security groups are synchronized to the Windows Azure Active Directory and can appear in the Windows Intune administrator console. For more information, see Active Directory Synchronization Roadmap.

    After you synchronize your local users and security groups to the Windows Azure Active Directory, you must activate the synchronized users and assign them membership in the Windows Intune user group to provision them in Windows Intune. For more information, see the “Adding Users and Security Groups to Windows Intune” section in the Windows Intune Getting Started Guide.

An environment in which the Exchange Connector is installed or configured must meet the following requirements:

Computer requirements for the On-Premises Connector

  • The computer runs Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008 SP2 (64-bit).

  • The Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is installed on the computer.

  • Windows PowerShell 2.0 is installed and enabled on the computer.

  • The computer is joined to the Exchange domain inside your organization, or to any domain with a trust relationship with the Exchange domain.

  • The computer has Internet access.

ImportantImportant
The Exchange Connector must be installed by a user with administrator privileges.

ImportantImportant
The Exchange Connector cannot be installed on a computer that runs an Exchange Server role.

If you are configuring the on-premises connector for Exchange On-Premises, we recommend that you install the Exchange Connector on a computer that is connected to your Exchange Client Access server. This is not necessary if you are configuring the on-premises connector for Exchange Hosted.

The Exchange Connector cannot be installed on the Windows Server Core edition.

Firewall and proxy server settings for the Exchange Connector with the On-Premises Connector

If you want to install the On-Premises Connector to enable mobile device management, you must configure the firewall or proxy server to allow Windows Intune to communicate with the computer that hosts the On-Premises Connector.

Required firewall configuration

If the computer on which you install the On-Premises Connector exists behind a firewall, you must configure the firewall to allow communication with the domains through the specified ports that are listed in the following tables.
