What is the OAB url collected as the part of the Autodiscover service
What is the response of accessing that URL from the IExplorer of the client machine

Do you see any error message when you manually download the OAB files.

It seems u unable to donwload OAB, check following:

Go to OAB generation server and see if the OAB is generating .
go to installation location locate the folder MsexchangeOAB it is shared folder and see if you have daily .LZX files, if it is generating then just restart microsoft file distribution service so that OAB is syncronized to CAS server you can see the event generated in application log once you restart the File distributiin service.

go to outlook machine > open outlook > hold controll key and right click OL icon in notification and click test email autoconfiguration > just select Autodiscover and provide credentials and run the test.

See if the test passes and is giving you valid Url for OAB.

if you geting valid url .. try to download OAB from send and receive and see if you can ... post the erros and  the result from test.

from the workstation, tried to browse to the OAB directory and I get error 500 on my browser.

Ok on OAB virtual directory in iIS make sure you have windows and basic authentication selected.
Right click OAB Vdir and click explore it should take you to the location Inside Cas server
Make sure Authenticated users have atleast read permission on the OAB folder under CAS server.
