If you have an On Premise or Hosted Exchange server, we need some extra information to be able to finalize the Nebula Synchronizer configuration. Two pieces of information we need are:

  • Username (domain/local username, not your email address)
  • Domain name (local domain name, not your email address)

How to:

There is a simple command in Windows which shows this information directly. Follow these steps to retrieve this information:

  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Open an Command Prompt by typing the command: cmd
  • Press ENTER
  • Type in the following command in the Command Prompt: whoami
  • Press ENTER

The information will be shown like: DOMAIN\USERNAME , in the example below:

  • Domain: ibtesting
  • Username: syncuser1
