Auto-discover broken for ActiveSync and Not RPC/HTTP

Hello

I am attempting to set up a Multi Tenant Exchange hosted environment. I have gotten most everything to work EXCEPT ActiveSynch + AutoDiscover.

AutoDiscover doesn't seem to work with it, yet it works with Outlook Anywhere.

Attached is  my EXCA log in PDF format...


VHSLI = Hosted Services Domain (Where the server is)
VCSLI = The domain which is being hosted.

Yes. It asks me to accept an un-trusted SSL cert, but it does work.

I'm trying to get AutoDiscover to work properly though...

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

This is a hosted Exchange. I'm using the redirect method to circumvent this need.

I have fixed some things but i have a new issue. Please see attached log.

Ok, It seems it was an issue with the authentication methods allowed.

I am now trying to correct this one last error...

Any help would be appreciated.

as this fails here
The Exchange ActiveSync URL was in an invalid format. It should be https://host/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync. was https://vhsli-ex-01.vhsli.local/.


please check the internal and external URL for Activesync in EMC

GO to EMC > server config> Client Access> in the mid plane select Activesync and see the info of the same

Here are my settings for that VD

If i disable Windows Authentication and Enable Basic, the connection fails.

If i disable Basic and  enable  Windows Auth the connection works.

VCSLIAuthor Commented:

Right now i have Basic Enabled and Windows Auth disabled. My outlook client wont connect also.

I agree. However i just enabled it and did another IISReset. My outlook client now connects.

I can make another screen cast if you want and show you.

It's been working fine. EXCA still complains about the auth types and that they are un-needed... Not sure how to fix that. It doesn't seem to be an issue though.
