OMA & ActiveSync Exchange 2003
Posted on 2004-08-30
I am 'trying' to get Outlook Mobile Access working with ActiveSync on a HP PDA, but am finding out that its not the easiest thing to configure. We are running with a single server solution, and implementing a front end back end system is not a feasible option.
I am not able to login to OMA from Internet Explorer, I get the following message:
A System error has occurred while processing your request. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact your administrator.
Then an event is logged in the Application Log of the exchange server (the first line of the description):
An unknown error occurred while processing the current request:
Message: The remote server returned an error: (403)
OWA works fine and has been doing so ever since exchange was installed, it uses SSL, but I did find an old MS KB Article which explained how to setup another copy of OWA for OMA to use which didnt have SSL, i followed this but the problem still remains. The Pocket PC device has the correct SSL certs installed on it.
What else do I need to do to get this working, I can see im not far away, but trying to find that last step is proving difficult.
