I think there is something wrong with my autodiscovery service in exchange 2010, but I'm not sure what to do to test it.  I am installing GFI MailArchiving and when I try to add my exchange 2010 server it says "Failed to DO Autodiscover"  Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this ot at least make sure autodiscovery is working.  Thanks.

When I do the test it fails:

Exchange Web Services Synchronization, Notification, Availability, and OOF
  Not all of the tests of Exchange Web Services tasks completed.
   Test Steps

I use Exchange Web Services for two applications.  Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 and GFI mailarchiver.  CRM is working fine with exchange, but GFI keeps giving me an error that says "failed to do autodiscover"  This worked a couple of weeks ago.  Any ideas on what to try.  Where do I find what my autodisovery URL is?  THanks

get-clientaccessserver | fl AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri
will tell you what internal clients attempt to use for the autodiscover service

you'll then want to check the settings for your autodiscover vdir (especially authentication settings)
get-autodiscovervirtualdirectory | fl

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
