windows mobile 5 active sync and get forms based authentication running for OWA

Posted on 2006-06-01

Got a pocket PC and active push pull works great. I am happy.

However people with OWA access no longer can have forms based authentication working, instead they get a pop up box where they have to enter domain\username then the password below. Yes it works but it does not look as nice.

If i tune forms back on then my Pocket PC does not work.

Has anyone figured out how to get both working at same time, even after server reboots. I have managed to get them on at same time, but as soon as server reboots then it stops.

    It does work after a reboot.
    You have to through the full process, including making the changes, then running an IIS reset.
    If you don't do the IIS reset then the changes aren't committed to the metabase and are lost after the reboot.
