  • start reading here:

    To (de)provision the Exchange/Lync objects you can use the AD MA.

    Another way to (de)provision mailboxes, is for example by using a powershell MA that executes the Exchange PoSH CMDlets. Soren Granfelt has one for free.

    by the way....regarding the PowerShell MA, check out the upcoming FIM User Group meeting. Soren will present about his PowerShell MA. A must see!

  • You need to check the Event Log in the FIM Sync Box to see what the ma-extension-error is about? I suspect that the ADMA account does not have proper Exchange permissions to run the 'Update-Recipient' cmdlet (which is what it does behind the scenes).

    Could you verify that the account specified for you AD MA has enough Exchange permissions? Also, verify that the FIM sync box can connect using remote PowerShell to your Exchange CAS servers - otherwise you'll have problems as well.

    The Exchange errors that you're seeing is most likely related to the Exchange CMDlets not be runned properly against the new Exchange mail.
