Need help configuring Exchange 2003 RPC over HTTPS
Posted on 2011-10-19
I've used RPC over HTTPS for some time on my old exchange 2003 server. Working perfectly.
Recently installed a new Exchange 2003 server, full SP and updated. The certificate I used on my old server is now installed on the new one (also accompanying root and intermediates). I moved my mailboxes etc and finally removed old original Exchange server. Everything works fine, except Outlook cannot connect with RPC over HTTPS.
OWA over HTTPS is working normally.
I installed the RPC over HTTP proxy component on my exchange server. After that, in IIS I configured the proxy with basic autenticaton only.
In Exchange System manager in the RPC tab of the properties of the server, I selected "not part of a managed topology".
I ran RPCNoFrontEnd.exe, filled in de FQDN and let it make the registry changes.
In Outlook in the connection tab, I selected the checkbox to use HTTP. In the proxy settings I specified the FQDN of I used before in RPCNoFrontEnd.exe and select basic authentication.
The Exchange server is the only exchange server (no front-backend) and not a DC, the DC available is also GC.
What am I overlooking?
