Exchange 2007 Final Configuration

Hi there,

Our exchange server seems to be working fine (at this stage of the 2003 migration) ie OWA, Outlook Anywhere etc, but when I do Test-OutlookWebServices I get


Id      : 1013
Type    : Error
Message : When contacting https://https://webmail.externaldomain.co.uk/Rpc received the error The remote name could not be resolved: 'https'

Id      : 1017
Type    : Error
Message : [EXPR]-Error when contacting the RPC/HTTP service at https://https://webmail.externaldomain.co.uk/Rpc. The elapsed time was 562 milliseconds.

Id      : 1006
Type    : Success
Message : The Autodiscover service was tested successfully.

Id      : 1021
Type    : Information
Message : The following web services generated errors.
              As, in EXPR
              Contacting server in EXPR




You will notice that in the above URLs it has https://https://*path*

How can I update these values to take out the duplicate 'https://'?

I've searched everywhere! Thanks in advance.

Its odd.

get-outlookanywhere |fl

doesn't actually show everything, and I cannot see how to get it to show the value I want - which is externalhostname.

EXPR you have probably seen as part of get-outlookprovider

I suspect that you have put https:// in somewhere that you shouldn't need to.
The first place I would look is on the Outlook Anywhere configuration.
It should be just host.example.com not https://host.example.com

Hi thanks for your reply.

Outlook ANywhere is OK its just hostname.externaldomain.com

I'm sure it's something in Powershell. i've seen 'EXPR' somewhere at the shell, but I can't remember how to get back to it to edit the values!!!

get-outlookanywhere |fl externalhostname
will show that.

I think I've fixed my problem though...

After running the get-outookprovider, I saw that I had all values set (for EXCH, EXPR and WEB) to th external hostname, and apparenlty according to an article I read, they shouldn't be set, so I set them to $null

after running test-outlookwebservices, the duplicate 'https://' had disappeared! I will give you the points Mestha as you pointed me in the right direction.

On a side note, what does EXPR mean/do?
