HI,

I have been reading the various blogs available on getting web services working correctly and have a few issues.  I have 2 CAS servers and when I run the "test-outlookwebservices -identity user@domain.com | fl, I get some errors.

Below are the commands I have entered to get my web services working, but am not sure I have these correct.  Please look this over and let me know if I have them wrong.  For example, I am not sure if my external url should be mail or autodiscover.  Also, do i apply this to both CAS server.

set-Outlook provider -id exch -server: CASserver1
set-Outlook provider -id expr -server: CASserver1
set-Outlook provider -id web -server: CASserver1



1.Create SRV record in DNS, External and Internal.

2.Set-ClientAccessServer -identity CASserver1 -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri http://mail.domain.com

3.Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "CASserver1\EWS (Default Web Site)” -InternalURL https://mail.domain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx -ExternalURL https://mail.domaint.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx -BasicAuthentication:$true

4.Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity "CASserver1\OAB (Default Web Site)” -InternalURL https://mail.domain.com/OAB -ExternalURL https://mail.domain.com/OAB -RequireSSL:$true

5.Set-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -Identity "CASserver1\Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync (Default Web Site)” -ExternalURL https://mail.domain.com/Microsoft-Server-Activesync 

6.Enable-OutlookAnywhere -Server CASserver1 -ExternalHostname "mail.domain.com” -ClientAuthenticationMethod-c "Basic” -SSLOffloading:$False

Thanks
David

you can use this article to validate
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_3704-Troubleshooting-Outlook-Certificate-Errors.html

you run
get-clientaccessserver | set-clientaccessserver
get-webservicesvirtualdirectory | set-webservicesvirtualdirectory
etc.

Thanks for the info.  Great link.

I made all the changes as per the information and here are a few outstanding errors.

1. When I run test-outlookwebservices -identity user@domain.com | fl
Error is:  When contacting http://mail.domain.com/AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml received the error The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

2. When I run the exchange connectivity test
Error; Attempting to test potential AutoDiscover URL https://domain.com/AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml 
  Testing of this potential Autodiscover URL failed.

Im almost there and I appreciate your help.

Thanks

1 other I forgot.
When I run test-outlookwebservices -identity user@domain.com | fl

: EXCH EXPR  provider(s) not found. Use Get-OutlookProvider or New-OutlookProvider to view or create providers.

1. check you "get-clientaccessserver | fl" results
it looks like you have http and not https, and the site requires SSL

2. does it pass a later autodiscover test, it won't pass them all but should pass at least one
