Active Sync between exchange server 2003 standard with SP2 and a t-mobile (UK) MDA Vario (latest and greatest rom)
Tough one this, attempting to sync with exchange server from MDA vario (T-mobile, UK) with exchange 2003 over GPRS. Should be straight forward but this is not the case. Gone through all the instructions for IIS and Active Directory and users
All answers I’ve found so fare tend to be for pre SP2
Mobile has latest and greatest software
Likewise server has latest and greatest
In theory with the below settings all should work
The server SSL disabled on;
Browser based (OWA) e-mail is still SSL, whilst the mobile services have no SSL (unchecked in directory security), this is reflected on the phone, SSL unchecked in server configuration settings
We have one exchange server, front end is not enabled, Forms-based authentication is enabled.
When attempting to sync MDA keeps asking for password, I’ve confirmed that the phone has established contact with the server.
One thing that has come to my attention, you should be able to browse to
(xxx is the IP address)
the simple exchange page should display, get the following error message
“A System error has occurred while processing your request. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact your administrator”
Is this a matter of reinstalling web services?
Or enabling front-end server, what would impact would this have on the server?
