Starting with Exchange 2013 Hosted .. this is a brief article about how to setup Tenants correctly step by step

1- Create OU

Create New-ADOrganizationalUnit -Name Test10 -Path ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com

2- Set OU’s UPN

set-adforest -identity exch01.lab.com -UPNSuffixes @{add=”test10.com”}

Moving to Exchange Management Shell

3- create accepted domain on Exch

New-AcceptedDomain -Name “test10” -DomainName test10.com -DomainType:authoritative

4- Create address book

New-GlobalAddressList -Name “test10 – GAL” -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 “test10” -IncludedRecipients MailboxUsers -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com”

Note:

Address books once created is virtually separated (That means you don’t have to do anything to separate Address books unless you want them to see each other)

  1. If needed then create All Rooms Address List

New-AddressList -Name “Test10 – All Rooms” -RecipientFilter “(CustomAttribute1 -eq ‘test10’) -and (RecipientDisplayType -eq ‘ConferenceRoomMailbox’)” -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com”

6- And time to create All Users Address List

New-AddressList -Name “Test10 – All Users” -RecipientFilter “(CustomAttribute1 -eq ‘Test10’) -and (ObjectClass -eq ‘User’)” -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com”

7- The All Contacts Address List

New-AddressList -Name “Test10 – All Contacts” -RecipientFilter “(CustomAttribute1 -eq ‘Test10’) -and (ObjectClass -eq ‘Contact’)” -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com”

8-The All Groups Address List

New-AddressList -Name “Test10 – All Groups” -RecipientFilter “(CustomAttribute1 -eq ‘Test10’) -and (ObjectClass -eq ‘Group’)” -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com”

clip_image010[6]

9-Now for something quite useful: Offline Address Book

New-OfflineAddressBook -Name “Test10” -AddressLists “Test10 – GAL”

clip_image011[6]

  1. Mail address policy

New-EmailAddressPolicy -Name “Test10 – EAP” -RecipientContainer “ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com” -IncludedRecipients “AllRecipients” -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 “Test10” -EnabledEmailAddressTemplates “SMTP:%g.%s@test10.com”,”smtp:%m@test10.com” -EnabledPrimarySMTPAddressTemplate “SMTP:%g.%s@test10.com”

clip_image012[6]

Set current enabled mail in the test10 organization’s smtp address to test.com

Set-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity “Test10 – EAP” -EnabledPrimarySMTPAddressTemplate “SMTP:%g.%s@test10.com”

If you’re connected from the Normal Exchange management shell you’ll normally get an error stating that users don’t exist on your Active Directory which is normal since the session you’re connected to is connected to the top forest users and can’t see the address book that’s isolated from other tenants.

You will need to open Powershell (not Exchange management Shell) and use the following cmdlet

Let’s connect to exchange, but before we have to add one of our Organization test10 users to the Organization Management Group in order to be able to administer his organization

$cred = get-credential

$Session = New-PSSession -Authentication basic -Credential $cred -ConnectionUri https://mr.moh10ly.website/PowerShell/ -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -AllowRedirection

Import-PSSession $Session

11- Address book policy

Now we need to create the Address Book Policy

New-AddressBookPolicy -Name “Test10” -AddressLists “Test10 – All Users”, “Test10 – All Contacts”, “Test10 – All Groups” -GlobalAddressList “Test10 – GAL” -OfflineAddressBook “Test10” -RoomList “Test10 – All Rooms”

clip_image018[6]

12- Optional

New-Mailbox -Name ‘Test10 Conference Room 1’ -Alias ‘test10_conference’ -OrganizationalUnit ‘ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com’ -UserPrincipalName ‘test10conf1@test10.com’ -SamAccountName ‘test10_conference’ -FirstName ‘Conference’ -LastName ‘Room 1’ -AddressBookPolicy ‘Test10’ -Room

clip_image019[6]

To mark this conference room for the tenant test10 I’ll have to use this cmdlet otherwise it won’t show in the address book of test 10

Set-Mailbox test10_conference -CustomAttribute1 ‘Test10’

clip_image020[6]

Set calendar settings for the conference room we have just created as following

Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity test10_conference -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept -DeleteComments $true -AddOrganizerToSubject $true -AllowConflicts $false

clip_image021[6]

13- Create mailboxes

$c = Get-Credential

New-Mailbox -Name ‘Mohammed Test’ -Alias ‘test10_mohammed’ -OrganizationalUnit ‘ou=test10,OU=ExchHosting,DC=lab,DC=com’ -UserPrincipalName ‘mohammed@test10.com’ -SamAccountName ‘test10_mohammed’ -FirstName ‘Mohammed’ -LastName ‘HAmada’ -Password $c.password -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $false -AddressBookPolicy ‘Test10’

clip_image022[6]

Now once I use this script the user will be created and you’ll be able to see In from the ECP

clip_image023[6]

But you won’t be able to see the user in the address book of the tenant since we didn’t apply the tenant which this user belongs to

clip_image024[6]

To do so we’ll have to use the following CMDLET

Set-Mailbox arthas@test10.com -CustomAttribute1 “Test10”
