Exchange 2007 Transport Agents - AD configuration partition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ref. test 3.11.5:
    TC3.11.5 Does the application place information in the configuration directory partition?

    Our product under test is an Exchange 2007 Transport Agent (TA), written in C#, supplied as a DLL – we extend the AD schema to store configuration information.

    Test environment:
    Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2 (DC).
    Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise (64bit) + Exchange 2007 SP3 Rollup 3v2 + debugger (VS2008 SP1).

    The test specifies “Fail this test case if there is evidence that the application has added data to the configuration container.”

    Our product needs to be installed on each machine where Exchange 2007 Edge Transport role is installed – therefore configuration data needs to be available across the whole domain.

    It should be noted that Exchange 2007 uses the configuration container to store information:

    CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=[domain]

    Any ideas as to how to proceed with the above test?
