exchange 2010 autodiscover uses the wrong external url
Posted on 2011-09-28
Hello I have two exchange 2010 servers, and two offices. (chicago and ohio)
The chicago server was created first and uses the external url
I'm seeing in exchange logs that ohio users are using https://email2010.domain.com and getting a http error of 500 when their outlook client tries to use autodiscover to connect via outook anywhere. How can I make users of the ohio server use email2 for autodiscover?
When I type
Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity "ohio2010\EWS (Default Web Site)" -externalurl https://email2.domain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx -BasicAuthentication:$True
the exchange shell accepts this but when I test with a:
test-outlookwebservices -identity:firstname.lastname@example.org I see more autodiscover entries for email2010 than email2. Yes it still suceeds, but I think that this is still my problem when users are out of the office.
Outlook will keep bothering users for their passwords.
