Adaxes 2016 is a cumulative update that contains many performance and usability improvements. Important bug fixes are also included.
The new release provides extended support for Exchange. In particular, we added the long-awaited possibility to create and delete remote mailboxes. Also, it is now possible to manage storage quotas in Exchange Online and enable or disable the OWA for Devices mailbox feature.
Apart from that, we've added the possibility to store log records in databases located outside of your Active Directory environment, such as, for example, Windows Azure SQL databases.
Starting from the new version, Adaxes supports creating remote mailboxes in hybrid environments. This allows you to route mail to users from both your on-premises and Exchange Online organizations. In addition to that, we've added the possibility to create remote resource mailboxes and remote mailbox archives using scripts.
Now, you have the possibility to enable and disable the OWA for Devices Feature of Exchange mailboxes.
In the new version, you can define storage quotas not only for mailboxes located on premises, but also for Exchange Online mailboxes.
From now on, when configuring the Establish Email Address action, you can specify a template for the external email address that will be assigned to users or groups mail-enabled by the action. This can be helpful if you want to assign an address that is different from their email address specified in the Email property.
If you create users with disabled accounts that are enabled on their first work-day, you can automatically create Exchange mailboxes for them when enabling the accounts. For this purpose, Business Rules triggered on enabling a user account support the Create Exchange Mailbox action.
We've added the possibility to use MS SQL databases located outside of your network to store Adaxes logs. This includes Windows Azure SQL, Amazon Web Services SQL services, and also other external MS SQL servers.
In response to multiple requests, we've optimized the performance and stability of the mechanisms used to access Office 365 and Exchange Online. Special attention has been paid to large environments with several thousand users in the cloud.
Fixed a time synchronization issue in the logging system. Typical symptoms of the issue are as follows: log records are not synchronized to an external logging database, and the following error appears in Adaxes Event Log:
Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PKOperations'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.Operations'. The duplicate key value is (GUID)."
Fixed an issue with the Business Units pane that occurred when one of the managed AD domains was not available. Due to the issue, the following error appeared in the pane instead of Business Units:
Command Processor 'Access Control Processor' threw an exception when processing the command. 'example.com' is not operational.
