I am working on configuring GALSYNC between two AD Forests of the same company but different geographic locations. Both Forests share the same external mail-domain namespaces (forest A has @abc.com while forest B have @abc.com and @abc.org). In forest B
all of the users who've @abc.org as mailbox have a corresponding forwarder contact in domain A whose mail attribute value is firstname.lastname@example.org and the targetAddress attribute value as email@example.com.
Right now we have not included forwarder contacts provisioning through FIM and is doing it manually and only provisioning normal contacts in the target forest . I know the default behavior of Gal-sync is to create corresponding contacts in the target domain
with the same domain namespace so user account with mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org will also be provisioned as normal contact in the target forest but I've the following requirement and let me know if this is possible:-
- User Accounts in Domain B with @abc.com mailbox be provisioned/joined as corresponding contact in Domain A as @abc.com
- User Accounts in Domain B with @abc.org mailbox be provisioned/joined as forwarder contact in Domain A with @abc.com doing email forwarding to @abc.org
if you use FIM and create your own Metaverse and Management Agent Extension it can easily be done. You have a straight forward provisioning rule (create, delete and move, if you need it) and only mail address related advanced Attribute flows
must be created. all other Attribute flows can be direct.
