autodiscover http status code 301

Autodiscover is not functioning, and therefore my resource mailboxes.

The autodiscover Error is confounding me.
Here's the response from autodiscover test:

Attempting URL https://mymailserver.mydomain.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml found through SCP
Autodiscover to https://mymailserver.mydomain.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml starting
Autodiscover request completed with a http status code 301
Autodiscover to https://mymailserver.mydomain.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml FAILED (0x80004005)

The autodiscover placeholder is all that's in the autodiscover.xml :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Autodiscover>
<!-- This is a placeholder file -->
</Autodiscover>

But for all intents and purposes this seems correct.

Server is 2008 IIs7

Try to force outlook to use public folders, that should fix it. Add this reg key to the client:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Options\Calendar
Value Type: DWORD
Value Name: UseLegacyFB
Values:0 or not set (default behavior which is to use the Availability Service) or 1 (use Public Folder based Free/Busy information)


(You need to set it to 1 for public folder usage)

This would be viable, except I have 1000 random clients, both attached and unattached to the domain. It's a but hairy to apply a registry hack to everyone.

Autodiscover should work, so make registry hacks is just working around the problem, not fixing it.

I would suggest that you go through this article to start with:

Ensure that it is configured correctly.

Simon.

This problem turned out to be due to a redirect, implemented in IIS7 that was set up to redirect to https. Cleared up the redirect and location THEN had the correct permissions to serve as autodetect local.
