    Exchange: Sort by

    swg

      Hi,

      after installaing the latest version of ARM we would like to go back to the way how the mailboxes are being displayed. We do not want to see any OU. Just sorted by SN.

       

      This setting still exists in cfg though, but seems to be getting ignored.

       

      Also, in the search field we click on a mailbox but it doesn't go there directly. It only jumps to the first OU in the list only.

      Any ideas?

      Thx

          Restarted the ARM service. The problem with search has been solved. It jumps directly to the mailboxes again when selected from within the search field. This part has been solved.

              Hi,

               

              put this in the pnServer.config:

              <exchange.makeMailBoxOUCategories type="System.Boolean">false</exchange.makeMailBoxOUCategories>

               

              Restart the service, do a rescan. Then the old mailbox sorting is back.

               

              For the search bug: I could reproduce it for mailboxes where the name is "lastname, firstname", the ones with "firstname lastname" work normal.

               

              Cheers

              Björn

                  Hi,

                   

                  settings work, although it does't seem to be sorting it alphabatically. But that's ok for now.

                   

                  Thank you

                      It should be sorted by the last name, which can be confusing because the first name is first.

                          As an example (shortened) sn, givenname :

                           

                          - Exchange

                                - Server

                                     -Mailboxes

                                              Administrator

                                              Fo, Patr

                                              He, Mar

                                              Ac, Chr

                                              Lu, An

                                              Pe, Da

                                              .

                                              .
                                              .No visible order

                           

                           

                          I had and still have this in pnServer.config (this was taken from the manual some time ago)

                           

                          <exchange>

                           

                             <makeMailBoxCategories type="System.Boolean">false</makeMailBoxCategories>

                          </exchange>

                           

                           

                          If set to false (what we have now), we get the unsorted looking list

                          If set to true (that's how it was before the update), we see CN=databases first:

                           

                          Exchange

                                - Server

                                     -Mailboxes

                                           - CN=Database 1

                                                     + All Mailboxes in DB 1

                                          - CN=Database 2

                                                     + All Mailboxes in DB 2

                                          - CN=Database 3

                                                     + All Mailboxes in DB 3

                           

                          and so on.

                           

                           

                           

                          For contacts and distribution groups it looks fine and sorted

                              Guess it is fixed now... there was another entry in pnjob.config.... Deleted it.

                               

                              This is now in pnServer.config:

                               

                              <exchange.makeMailBoxOUCategories type="System.Boolean">false</exchange.makeMailBoxOUCategories>

                              <exchange>

                                  <makeMailBoxCategories type="System.Boolean">false</makeMailBoxCategories>

                              </exchange>

                               

                              Now all mailbox are listed by last, first name and also sorted by last name

                               

                               

                               

                              Update: Too quick... Sorted by last name but depending on the database it starts from A again ... ok for now. Not too important
