What do I put in my DeploymentPro (legacy) user list for Source and Destination address?

Answer:

In DeploymentPro, you will be asked to enter the following information when setting up your user list:

  • Source email address

  • Destination email address

Use the following as guidelines to determine what you should enter in your user list:

​Source Email Address

  • If you are installing DeploymentPro through end user email, the Source email address is the email address where we will send the installation email.
  • If you are installing DeploymentPro through a Group Policy script, we will perform an LDAP lookup for the primary SMTP address in Active Directory when the user logs on, and try to match the SMTP address to whatever is provided in the DeploymentPro user list. When you run DeploymentPro in GPO mode, we first try to locate the user’s primary SMTP address. The goal is to match whatever is in the DeploymentPro user list with what we discover with the LDAP lookup so that we can track the user's progress in DeploymentPro.

    Note: When DeploymentPro discovers the user's Source address through the LDAP lookup, it removes everything after the @ and creates a hash that is used to authenticate with DeploymentPro. As long as the usernames match, it does not matter what comes after the @ (i.e., if the SMTP is user1@domain.local and the email address specified in DeploymentPro is user1@domain.com, the authentication will be successful).

Destination Email address:

This is the email address that DeploymentPro will use to configure an Outlook profile. We recommend specifying the primary SMTP address in Office 365 or Exchange. In most cases, this will match the UPN in Office 365 or Exchange.

Note: If UPN and SMTP addresses mis-match, then follow directions in KB005458, to set the correct address.

UPN: a User Principal Name can exist in any of the following formats:

  • john.doe@company.com
  • john.doe@company.local
  • company\johndoe (legacy environments)

Example PowerShell scripts (for Office 365) to help you obtain the Source and Destination email addresses:

Import-Module activedirectory

get-aduser -filter * -properties name, userprincipalname, emailaddress, proxyaddresses | select name, userprincipalname, emailaddress,@{L='ProxyAddresses'; E={$_.proxyaddresses[0]}} | export-csv "C:\temp\userslist.csv"

Or use the following to obtain the Office 365 information, if the Destination side of the project is not synchronized in Active Directory:

$office365userlist = get-mailbox | select-object -property name, Displayname, userprincipalname, EmailAddresses | export-csv -Path C:\temp\Office365userslist.csv -NoTypeInformation
