Exchange forms authentication, active sync, iphone?
Posted on 2011-02-15
We used to use forms based authentication for OWA for our users.
This gave them a nice login screen, where they could just enter their username and password.
In changing our exchange server configuration for iphone, we were told to disable forms based authentication.
Now when users browse to mail/exchange they are just prompted with a login box and must enter:
DOMAIN/username and password.
Is there a way to use forms authentication and have active sync still work? Or is there a way to configure it so they can just enter their username and password and do not have to enter the netbios name?
