ADDriver: Exchange: could not get CDOEXM mailbox interface


- Verify the Exchange management tools are installed onto the AD controller running the remote loader.
- Make sure the AD Driver user you authenticating with to AD has Administrator rights with Exchange management rights.
Other users have suggested the following tips:
- Do not use signing nor sealing
- Mailbox will be created only and only when there are no proxyaddreses attributes present! In AD they are called aliases etc. Just is just the opposite how the Exchange tools rewuire it...
- Add the aliases after the mailbox creation, I used a signalling attribute at the end of AD driver that wakes up a service driver that sets the aliases (proxyaddresses) and sends the wakeup email (template)
- We're using a bunch of X2K servers / storage groups / folders. USE REGULAR EXPRESSIONS to define homeMDB! I managed to cover all the ~10 locations with 1 rule (whereas the "cool solutions" would have done it
with 10 rules) and a lot faster.
