Domain controller with outlook asks login and password when connectin to exchange 2007 server

Weird phenomenon, when connecting from the terminal servers you can log on with no problems to your exchange 2007 SP1 mailbox. When trying this on the domain controller  it asks a login and password. Could this be a bug or is there a logical explanation for this.

Hi benfran,

Add Outlook Web Access URL to trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer, restart program and try again.

Toniur that would have been my guess.
but specifically add the internal name and external name of the exchange 2007 server
so if it is
server.local internally and
alias.domain.com externally add both to the trusted sites

I'm using outlook 2007, it fails when it want's to setup my account. It immediately shows my login screen. Issue is not appearing on 4 other servers only on DC / GC server.

that is indicating a possible issue with the autodiscovery service.

if you open outlook and then hold the control key down and right mouse click on the outlook icon in the system tray and select test email configuration, check only the first check box and type in an email address of the user you are trying to configure then  select test.

this will tell you exactly where it is failing and give some error codes in the log tab.

post the results here

just a quick thought

in your DNS add an alias for your exchange server called autodiscover.domain.local (replace domain.local with your internal domain) the autodiscover needs this to work correctly

I've created autodiscover alias for my exchange server. I can ping it but outlook stil doesn't want to authenticate to the exchange server.

When trying to create the administrator mailbox he detects serverside config ( xxxx@xxx ). But doesn't want to sign on the exchange server.
