Exchange 2007 AutoDiscover

HI

I have set up an exchange server with the following.

Windows Server 2008 Enteprise on a 2003 Server Domain with 2 domain controllers.
Exchange seemed to be working fine until i reinstalled network card drivers to make use of jumbo frames on one nic, and ever since i have been getting asked for a password in outlook 2007. test-outlookwebservices failed with error 1013 and 1006. Outlook anywhere is enabled and i have a valid godaddy ucc certificate for autodiscover.mydomain.com and webmail.mydomain.com.

My internal dns server points clients to webmail.mydomain.com for everything and when testing autodiscover in outlook 2007 everything looks fine. I wned to test get-webservicesvirtualdirectory | fl name,internalurl,externalurl and i get an access is denied error. I am thinking it is something to do with authentication on iis7 to the 2003 domain controllers.

Can anyone offer any advice?

hi, i have tried that an still get an error going to https://localhost/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml. when going to local host i get a certificate error but i dont with my fqdn, meaning my certificate is properly loaded. the output is errorcode 600 invalid request.

i am assuming this is not correct? From this i figured that it is more than a loobback issue.

I believe the 600 error code is normal when accessing the autodiscover address internally, What happens if you try to use a real outlook 2007 client?

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

outlook 2007 works fine when on the domain and i originally had a heap of password issues with connecting over  https (outlook anywhere) but seem to have resolved those, yet i still cannot test-outlookwebservices.

If that doesn't work, try removing / re-adding the CAS role, would probably fix it up

I Solved it. You can try disabling ASP.NET Impersonation, Disable Anonymous, Digest and Forms. Enable Windows and Basic ONLY for autodiscover and EWS.

After numerous forums, pulling hair out this definately resolved for us.

We have a Communications CERT, set the internal to local domain ie domain.local, external to public domain ie domain.com.au and all works well.

Good luck.
