This topic provides background information about how DCOM Exchange Connector applications work with Microsoft Exchange Servers. It is important to understand this information before proceeding to the task, Configuring DCOM Exchange Connector Parameters.
This task is an optional step in Process of Configuring the DCOM Exchange Connector.
There are two basic ways you can configure DCOM Exchange Connector applications to work with Microsoft Exchange Servers: without Connector Application Map records and with Connector Application Map records.
If you have implemented a simple network topology, you do not have to map DCOM Exchange Connectors to Microsoft Exchange Servers. You only have to configure Connector Application Map records if you want to specify different Exchange Connector settings for different Microsoft Exchange Servers, or if you have implemented a distributed network topology for performance reasons. The following paragraphs describe each configuration type in more detail.
In this configuration type, you do not create any Connector Application Map records. SSSE dynamically assigns a DCOM Exchange Connector application to synchronize each user, as required—any DCOM Exchange Connector computer can perform synchronizations with any Microsoft Exchange Server. This configuration type is most useful for load balancing in implementations where wide-area network performance is not a major factor, or where the number of Microsoft Exchange Servers exceeds the number of DCOM Exchange Connector computers.
For information about creating the Engine Shares that designate which computers run the DCOM Exchange Connector application, see Setting Up the DCOM Exchange Connector Share Directory.
In this configuration type, you create Connector Application Map records that assign specific DCOM Exchange Connector computers to handle synchronizations with specific Microsoft Exchange Servers. This configuration type is most useful if you want to optimize performance in a Siebel implementation that has Microsoft Exchange Servers in widely scattered geographical locations—performance might be optimized when each DCOM Exchange Connector computer is located close to the Exchange Server that the connector synchronizes.
For information on creating Connector Application Maps, see Configuring DCOM Exchange Connector Parameters.
