Set Up MS Exchange Server Authentication

Create an MS Exchange Server record in order to authenticate to a Microsoft Exchange Server running on a Windows host, and scan it for compliance. Windows authentication is required so you'll also need a Windows record for the host running the web server.

This record type is only available in accounts with PC and is only supported for compliance scans.

Which versions are supported?

We support Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, 2013, and 2016.

How do I get started?

- Go to Scans > Authentication.

- Check that you have a Windows record already defined for the host running the web server.

- Create an MS Exchange Server record for the same host. Go to New > Applications > MS Exchange Server.

How does it work?

We'll authenticate to each target host using the credentials provided in the Windows record. If the host is running an MS Exchange Server  then we'll check to see if an MS Exchange Server record exists. If yes, we'll use credentials from the Windows record to authenticate to the Windows system, access the web server configuration, and scan it for compliance.
