Unable to create mailbox on Solid CP not join to domain

Hi, we are using the Solid CP and link to Exchange 2016. But Solid CP is not a join to domain.

We try to create a mailbox but got an error related to winrm.

I work a lot with Exchange so..  as far as I understand the Solid CP will try to open a Remote PowerShell to Exchange and do that task.

But I don't know the authentication method it will be used on Solid CP.

If we use Kerberos authentication then I feel that if the Solid CP does not join into domain, it cannot work. Since I tried with PowerShell command to make a remote exchange connection it cannot work with Kerberos authentication with the not-domain join PC

If I change to Basic authentication, the PowerShell command on the Solid CP server can work well but the on Solid CP site, we still got an error.

On the Solid CP site, I don't see anywhere to change the PowerShell URL authentication method. Just seem that we will put only the link of Powershell virtual directory there.

My question is

1) Can we have any way to make it works (able to create a mailbox, etc..) on Solid CP without joining to the domain.

2) What is the authentication method that Solid CP will use when connecting to the Exchange by Remote Powershell? and could we change that authentication..

Hello,

As you can see in the Exchange manual here we do recommend to enable integrated Windows Authentication and use that for the authentication method.

The SolidCP Portal and Enterprise do not need to be connected to AD itself but we do require the SolidCP Server on the exchange server have AD authentication so it can connect to the AD for management of users via the Hosted Org.

I am not aware of a method of doing this without SolidCP AD support however it may work with the correct settings.

Regards,

Trevor

@trobinson Thanks for your reply

We have 2 objects here. User and the SolidCP Server (the Machine which SolidCP installed on)

- The user to connect to Exchange on SolidCP Server is AD/Exchange admin so it's fine to do the task.

- The SolidCP Server is not joined into Domain. It's a standalone server (workgroup)

When installation, SolidCP Server is fine and we also can see the SolidCP on Exchange Server IIS.

The problem here is when we create a mailbox or something it cannot do on SolidCP Website.

For the case with standalone SolidCP Server, is that possible to do that task?

In SolidCP we have 3 components:

  • Portal
  • Enterprise
  • Server

 

You can have Portal and Enterprise on their own server which is not joined to the domain but you should install the SolidCP Server component on the exchange server with a AD user.
