Brian and Scott are working with the Exchange 2010 specialists at UIC to try and get the two sites’ Exchange systems federated via the Microsoft Federation Gateway. This federation will make it possible for each site to view the users’ free/busy status and global address list of the other. Since there is no test Exchange environment to do this with, we are making the changes on our production systems. We are limiting the participants to just ITS staff at this point in time. After we’re confident that the system is working correctly and is stable, we’ll extend the capability to the rest of the UIS Exchange 2010 users. So if you begin seeing UIC addresses and view some UIC users’ free/busy info, that’s what’s going on.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
