Autodiscover failing to work using SCP on one of two Exchange servers.

We have 2 exchange 2007 Cas servers running autodiscover.

So far we have run tests on the Autodiscover on both boxes locally and all pass exchange tests, they return the same results as each other and all looks positive.

However - When using outlook (through terminal services session) auto discover does not always work.

When testing outlook connectivity  (CTRL + Right click on outlook icon) we can see auto-discover works and is found using SCP to exch2. However if we connect to exch1, this fails lookup using SCP and seems to move on to attempting DNS lookup (which fails).

Basically it seems hit and miss as to the results issued by SCP lookup. I have checked both servers SCP details in sites and services and they both appear to be configured correctly. Does anyone out there have any experience of this?

Please let me know if you require any details,

Thanks in advance!

the SCP usually points to the first server that is installed in the environment, do you have NLB setup or you are using single HUB

Its strange - it seems to (randomly) pick up exch2 using SCP - or nothing at all.

I have found the issue was down to an incorrect URL in the SCP for exch1. I have corrected this and can now connect reliably.
