Jetstress is an important Exchange tool that should be run on all Mailbox Role servers before Exchange is installed. Proper tuning of Jetstress will help you determine maximum disk subsystem throughput performance.
In the first part, we learned how to configure Active Directory for creating a container in ADSI Edit and to export Service Connection Point (SCP) information from a resource forest to an account forest. In this part, I will discuss how Outlook uses the Autodiscover service to configure user profiles and access mailboxes with other Exchange services such as offline address book (OAB) or (out of office) OOF.
In Part 1 of this two-part series, I will explain how to set up Active Directory in an Exchange Autodiscover multi-forest environment and in Part 2 I will explain how Autodiscover works on the client side.
In the final part in my Exchange 2013 series, I will cover workload Management, malware and spam protection, site mailboxes, Lync integration, In-Place eDiscovery, and In-Place Hold.
