Does anybody know how to configure Exchange Federation Trust?
Can you please teach me a step by step procedure on how to configure it? It will really be of great help.
This is the first time I will configure an Exchange Federation Trust.
We share some users’ free/active information with another company.
Both companies are using SPI Exchange 2010.
I thought that both companies need to configure their Exchange Federation.
Procedure in Exchange 2010 SP1 Federation Configuration
Here is a procedure for configuring exchange federation trust using EMC:
First you will need permissions to be able to perform this procedure.
Check the permissions you need here: Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions.
Once you have the permissions, you will proceed as follows:
Click Organization Configuration in the in the console tree.
And then locate the action pane, and click New Federation Trust.
Navigate to the New Federation Trust page, and there you will need to click New. A certificate for the federation trust will be automatically created which has the Microsoft Federation Gateway and it will be able to deploy the self-signed certificate to the Exchange servers that you are using in your organization. The default name that is allocated to new federation trust is: Microsoft Federation Gateway.
Thereafter you will go to the Completion page, review statuses and then click Finish to close the wizard.
