Advanced Manual Configuration of AppInsight for Exchange

Updated: 3-9-2017

Manual configuration is only recommended for experienced Exchange administrators. For quick credential configuration, see Quick configuration - AppInsight for Exchange.

Configuration changes to enable AppInsight for Exchange

The configuration tool first transfers to the Exchange Server by using the Windows administrative share. Once on the Exchange Server, the tool uses a custom PowerShell script to make configuration changes. SAM will add the Mailbox Search Role to the Exchange server with the credentials provided. The tool then reports back to SAM with the results. If errors are reported, you will be asked to configure Exchange.

The target machine must have the following:

  • WinRM 2.0
  • PowerShell v2.0
  • IIS

SAM will make the following configuration changes:

  • Enable WinRM
  • Enable Windows Authentication for PowerShell's web site
  • WinRM and Windows Authentication configurations are performed remotely from SAM

SAM uses a specially designed configuration tool to make the necessary changes for enabling AppInsight for Exchange. Once this tool completes remote configuration, it will automatically remove and unregister itself.
