Exchange 2007 Autodiscover using Group Policy - enters server name as cn path
Posted on 2009-04-13
Using Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007 - on a Windows 2003 domain.
I am trying to setup autodiscover so our teachers can simply open outlook on any computer (including our terminal servers) and outlook inserts the correct server & username without the member of staff knowing anything about it.
It applies the policy fine, but when the user opens outlook, it shows the servername as:
/o=school/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=EXCHSRV
rather than simply "Exchsrv".
If I change the long CN path to simply "Exchsrv" and press check name, it finds it and we are ok.
We used to have Exchange 2003, but now we run Exchange 2007 and the 2003 server is no longer (physically went up in smoke!!)
Anyone seen this before?
