Outlook Anywhere Virtual Directory - Can it be moved?
Posted on 2007-12-03
I have a native Exchange / Outlook 2007 Environment. OWA is our main deployment venue, so in the beginning, we used a URL redirection on the Default Web Site to point via DNS to the OWA sign-in page. Now that we are trying to enable Outlook Anywhere, I would like to move the RPC and RPCWithClient virtual dirs to another website on the CAS, using DNS to point to them. The problem is: when I enable RPC over HTTPS, and go to enable Outlook Anywhere, it points to the default location under the Default Web Site. I can't find any way to change it. I've run every cmdlet I can think of with every argument in the book, but when I try to specify another website name or location for the vdir, I always get the error that the object was not found on the DC. Apparently the cmdlet is trying to specify the location of the SCP instead of changing the info in the SCP to use the new url/vdir. Anyone else run into this? The only workaround I can think of is to host OWA on another website, give it another listener IP, and change DNS to go there, but that could be messy in a production environment.
