Problems with Exchange 2003 RPC over HTTPS
Posted on 2007-10-05
Ok. I've been fighting with this for about a month now.. and I can't seem to fix it on my own. Here's the scoop so far:
Server 1: Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise GC / DC
Server 2: Windows 2003 R2 w/ Exchange 2003 and all Service Packs
OWA is installed, and working on Exchange. Using a purchased certificate from Certificates for Exchange. Installed, and working correctly.
I have followed all of the steps for RPC over HTTPS that I can find. I've done and redone the registry settings, using the guide from Sembee's site, to create the registry settings and just install a .reg file. Today, I just did Split DNS to be sure. Here are the specifics:
The internal domain name is the same as what it is on the internet... domain.ca. I have a machine that I have synched internally once.. so it has a copy of the exchange mailbox.. and I am able to use it there. Some notes:
1) My client machine is running Outlook 2007.
2) I have yet to be able to connect successfully.
I've checked and re-checked the registry entries.. but hell, I'll check them again. One question: should I be making any alterations to the registry on my secondary DC?
Despite the novel above, when making suggestions.. assume nothing. I have no problem starting from the beginning, if you think it will help.
For ease of reference, here are the internal Server names (minus the domain name)
ECDC1 - Primary Domain Controller, GC
ECEXCH1- Exchange 2003 Server
ECDC2- Second Domain Controller
