I am running an SBS 2008 server and would like to the change the way the OWA URL is specified as I have seen with other companies.
For example, currently whenever I type http or https:\\mail.domain.com
it will automatically redirect to https:\\remote.domain.com\owa
then the OWA logon page is shown with https:\\remote.domain.com\owa
show in the address bar.
I had already registered a UCC with alternative name mail.domain.com and the domain name mail.domain.com to point to the my external IP. Everything works great except for one small cosmetic thing that when it gets directed the resulting URL after the page is loaded shows https:\\remote.domain.com\owa
instead of staying as https:\mail.domain.com
How can I change the URL so that SBS2008 will keep the URL even after the OWA page is loaded?
A perfect example of this is AMD - https://myemail.amd.com/
that after the OWA page is loaded up the URL still says "https://myemail.amd.com/
" not "https://remote.amd.com/owa
The second issue is that I want to disable RRW as we have no use for it but I don't want to delete the virtual directory. I know you can disable RRW from the SBS Console but each time after a restart it automatically restart the service. Is there a way to make it stay disabled until switched on re-enabled?
Thanks in advance.
Please be detailed with your answer.
