Autodiscover keeps bombing out. works temporarily.
Posted on 2010-09-06
Hi, I have a Windows Server SBS 2008 server with Exchange 2007.
All services are working other than Outlook Anwhere to a degree. Keep getting prompted for a second password in Outlook 2007 from autodiscover.domain.com remotely and internally although mailbox connects and if you hit cancel it stays connected.
If I run the connectivity test online the error i get is 'A Web Exception occurred because an HTTP 401 - Unauthorized response was received from Unknown'. Server is running GoDaddy cert with autodiscover.domain.com also. If I browse to /autodiscover/autodiscover.xml either externally or internally I get prompted for password but it never shows XML file UNLESS....
...I run iisreset then it works periodically. The connectivity site even says successful but then I open Outlook remotely, connect, get second password prompt, cant authenticate and then connectivity test fails if I try again.
It's almost like it works until somethign kicks back in.
