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:// 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:// 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.

    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 not

    Hi thanks for your reply.

    Outlook ANywhere is OK its just

    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!!!

    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

    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?
