Creating Profiles to Connect to Production Sources

In order to connect to a production source, DigiScope® requires that you create a profile for an authenticated user that has been granted Rights Required for Online Database & Mailbox Access.

NOTE: You may have to use the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the Exchange server, rather than just the NETBIOS name, to get the profile to create and the machine to connect properly

There are two options when you decide to connect to a production Source:

  1. Using Default Profile - This option is usually listed as "Using {User Name} {Domain} ({Profile Type})". If you have not created a profile to connect to the target production source, or a production source on the same Exchange server, this option will automatically create a profile for the user account that DigiScope® is currently running under. If you have previously created a profile for the production source, this option will connect using that profile.

  2. Using Alternate Profile - This option will take you to the DigiScope® - Profile Configuration dialog. This dialog allows you to select a previously created profile to use to connect to the production source, or search for another user to create a profile for.

After creating a new profile for use with DigiScope®, you will have two options:

Standard Profile

You can create a standard profile for the user account that DigiScope® is currently running under by selecting the Standard menu option under the Using Default Profile menu. This menu is only available if you haven't previously connected to the production source or another production source on the same Exchange server.

Using the Using Alternate Profile option, you can create a standard profile by making sure the Connect to Microsoft Exchange using RPC over HTTP option is NOT checked in the DigiScope® - Profile Configuration dialog.

NOTE: Creating a standard profile is not an option when connecting to an Exchange 2013 or 2016 production source.

RPC over HTTP Profile

You can create an RPC over HTTP profile for the user account that DigiScope® is currently running under by selecting the RPC over HTTP menu option under the Using Default Profile menu. This menu is only available if you have not previously connected to the production source or another production source on the same Exchange server.

Using the Using Alternate Profile option, you can create an RPC over HTTP profile by making sure the Connect to Microsoft Exchange using RPC over HTTP option IS checked in the DigiScope® - Profile Configuration dialog.

NOTE: Creating an RPC over HTTP profile is the only option when connecting to an Exchange 2013 or 2016 production source.

Once you select to create an RPC over HTTP profile, you will see the Microsoft Exchange Proxy Settings dialog.
