unable to connect outlook 2007 to exchange 2007
Posted on 2009-05-13
Yesterday our exchange server tried to install exchange 2007 service pack 1 rollup 7 and failed miserably. It hung on install and we were forced to remove it. We have left it removed and have been troubleshooting the resulting errors today.
So far to get exchange back online I had to delete and re-create the OWA virtual directory, that brought webmail back online. Then phones would not reconnect, so I had to delete and re-create the activesync virtual directory. That brought some phones back online but I ended up having to replace the EWS virtual directory to get our BIS blackberry users to come back online. However once I did that I recieved a phone call from a user who's outlook and OWA stopped working.
I got his OWA working for now, but now my server is reporting a cert mismatch between what it has and how people are connecting to it.
We have it setup for plain text password exchange. OWA and RPC over HTTPS was working fine before the EWS reinstall, is there some settings I messed up by reinstalling the EWS directory that i need to reset now? Currently users who are logged in and do not log out do not experience any problems but this is going to soon come to a head.
I was doing some other research and could not fund the RPC over https proxy service on my exchange server, all I have is the RPC over http service called RPC/HTTP Load Balancing service. Shold I uninstall RPC over http and reinstall it? if so are there other settings that I will need to reconfigure after the reinstall? Thanks
