Distribution group

Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS) only allow Exchange mailboxes that are members of a distribution group to be queried programmatically, therefore all Exchange rooms mailboxes mapped to Condeco must be added to an Exchange distribution group. Condeco can only synchronize Exchange rooms that are members of the distribution group.

The group must be a Room List distribution group.

The distribution group is not used for security, it is only to reduce administrative overhead. You can, however, use mail-enabled security groups to control access to calendars. Learn more about controlling access to calendars

Create an Exchange distribution group

Use the following PowerShell script to create a Room List distribution group:

New-DistributionGroup -Name <distribution group name> -DisplayName <distribution group display name> -PrimarySmtpAddress <distribution group email address> -RoomList

Add Exchange room mailboxes to the distribution group

Add the Exchange room mailboxes to the distribution group using the following PowerShell script:

Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity <distribution group name> -Member <room mailbox name>

Remove a mailbox from a distribution group

If you want to remove a room mailbox from the Condeco interface, first remove any room mapping within Condeco and then remove the room from the distribution group:

  1. Use the Condeco web interface to remove the Exchange room mapping to the Condeco room.
  1. Remove the Exchange room mailbox from the security group. Use the following PowerShell script to remove mailbox calendars from a security group.
Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "Enter Group Name" -Member "Enter Mailbox id"
