Disable Outlook Anywhere for Outlook 2010 on a Citrix server

We have an environment with Exchange 2010 Service Pack 1, Office 2010, Citrix Xen App 6 and about 2500 users.

My problem is when a new profile is created in Outlook 2010 (via autodiscover) on a Citrix session it turns ON Outlook Anywhere and Connect with HTTP in fast and slow networks.
Then the users have to type their username and password before the profile is created.

I've tried the solution in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2426686
But it tells med how to enable Outlook Anywhere, not disable.

This is really a big problem since I cannot logon as every user and then disable Outlook anywhere.

I will post those here if the thing I just tried won't work:

I added the adm file from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2426686 and put NO FLAGS in the RPC/HTTP setting.
Since the domain controllers in the domain now is spread across two sites and I don't have the appropiate  rights to force the AD replication , I will have to wait until all DCs are replicated before I see if the setting actually works.

Will keep you posted.

If Outlook Anywhere is enabled autodiscover will configure outlook no matter what you do !

The question is why do you want to disable it and/or why is it always connecting using http ?

what problem are you facing ?

I want to disable it because the users get the username and password question when they start Outlook on a Citrix / Terminal server.

I also wonder why both fast and slow networks are Outlook anywhere enabled.

The Exchange and Citrix servers are in different subnets, but within the same location, so the response time between exchange and citrix is less than 0.5 ms and that should be a fast network.

I should say that we are migrating from Exchange 2007 on a different location, but even between the sites the responce is less than what is usually defined as a slow network.
And this happens even though the mailbox has been moved to the new servers, or if I create a new mailbox on the Exchange 2010 servers.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

You mean everytime to start or only the first time ?

How are you making sure it is using outlook anywhere?

It asks for username and password every time.

If I edit the settings for Outlook Anywhere in Outlook, disable Outlook Anywhere and restart Outlook, then every thing is fine.
I will take anway the possibility to edit these settings when I see everything working as intended.

please start outlook /rpcdiag and check if, once connected, it is showing TCP/IP or HTTP ?

please run

When the DCs had replicated the choice to use Outlook Anywhere was off and greyed out
