Integration: The Final Step in Change Management
The final step in successful change management is the Integration stage. Here’s how to bring everything together. Watch now.
One of the latest additions to Radar Reporting is reporting for on-premises mailboxes.Data for mailboxes located on-premises and in Exchange Online can now be viewed side by side, which means that the reports can be used to track migration progress, or get a better understanding of a hybrid environment. In order to gather reporting data for on-premises mailboxes, you will have to install an agent. Are you a Radar Reporting subscriber with on-premises mailboxes that you would like to report on? Here’s how to get set up.
Before installing the agent, make sure .Net 4.6.2 is installed on the Windows Server where the On-Premises agent will be installed.
The agent should be installed on a Windows server, the following versions are currently supported; Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 & Windows Server 2016.
You will also need:
Supported Exchange versions
In order for on-premises data to be collected for Radar Reporting you will need to deploy an agent to a Windows Server. It is NOT recommended to install this on the Exchange Server itself. The Windows Server should be in the same domain, or be able to contact your exchange environment via PowerShell.
During the installation process, you will be required to enter the following information:
The Agent ID & AUTH Token will be supplied from the Radar Reporting site during the installation process.
Download and Install the On-Premises agent
Account: Exchange service account that has “View-Only Administrative” access to your exchange environment. See Prerequisites
Password: Password for the above account
Creating a local service account.
The local service account is required for the agent to log in to the local system and run as a service. To do this:
Creating an Exchange access account
The Exchange access account is used by the agent to pull information from your exchange environment. This should be a domain user account that MUST be a member of Exchange View-Only Administrators.
This article explains how to create a user account in your domain. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd894463(v=ws.10).aspx
Once this process has been completed, we will have everything we need to gather information on your on-premises mailboxes. If you have any questions, or trouble configuring the agent, please contact our support team, by clicking the ‘?’ Icon in the top-right of the application.
