Shared calendar using Outlook Anywhere

I have users that run Outlook both on a terminal server and using Outlook Anywhere.

On the terminal server and OWA everything works just fine, but when connecting using Outlook Anywhere most of the shared calendars are empty. There is an error saying 'no connection' (freely translated).

I suspected it could be a Autodiscover problem, as we are using a Thawte SSL123 certificate that is only registered to 'remote.domain.com', but a couple of calendars show up just fine. If this was the case I assume no calendars would show up.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

I think that this is an autodiscover issue as well.
For outlook anywhere to work you really need a UCC certificate, or you will see all kinds of weird things.
Did they share the calendars via outlook, or via OWA?

It seems you are correct.

I noticed that there were no host record for autodiscover.domain.com. Registered this and now I get a certificate error when opening Outlook. If I confirm the use of this certificate I can connect to all the shared calendars. I obviously need to buy a new certificate.

Thanks

yeah , that would be best to do.
I would suggest buying one from godaddy. They are about 150$ for 3 years.
And they are trusted etc...

Microsoft provides a workaround for this issue, which solved the issue for me.

Still, for future servers I will use a different certificate
