Installed UCC Cert for Exchange 2007, now Outlook Anywhere not working

Posted on 2011-03-03
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
As the title suggests, I've installed a UCC certificate for Exchange 2007, replacing a wild card cert.  My internal and external webmail work fine, and ActiveSync clients are connecting with no problems.  But I can't get an Outlook Anywhere client to connect.  I keep getting prompted for a username/password and it won't accept anything.  I've tried fiddling around with every different setting, and at this point I'm at my wits end and need this resolved ASAP.  

Any suggestions, things to try, I've done some research on here and also other exchange forums but I'm stuck.  Thank you.

Hi there,

what type of authentication have you set for Outlook Anywhere?

You can view the settings with Get-OutlookAnywhere from the shell.

Can you change the authentication from NTLM to basic please?
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Michael-Changing the authentication level does not help

Satya-The test is fine until the final step, Testing SSL mutual authentication with the RPC proxy server.  

The certificate common name doesn't validate against the mutual authentication string that was provided: msstd:*

Your outlook still represents the config for the wildcard cert you had before. You should first of all change the Outlookprovider

first check the Outlookprovider "EXPR" to see what setting it has for the certprincipalname. (probably "*.etc")

You should (if it's set to "*.etc") change it like this:

Set-OutlookProvider -Identity EXPR -CertPrincipalName

I just ran that command, and it looks like I'm able to connect now.  I will try a few other clients as well. is going through now as well.

Great work, that fixed it up.  My remotes need to VPN in once to get the settings, but its working beyond that.  Thank you again.
