Exchange 2010 CAS Proxy

Hi all,

I am transitioning from exchange 2003 to 2010, and I’m testing the OWA functionality. Now it’s my understanding that if I have legacy.domain.com pointing the 2003 server and mail.domian.com pointing to 2010. I should be able to access 2003 mailboxes by inputting mail.domain.com>input credentials>Exchange 2010 knows that I’m accessing a 2003 mailbox and forwards me automatically to that frontend?

If this is current… then it’s not working.

Straight off it gives me an: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

If I add SSL it gives me the OWA 2010 page, but inputting my credentials gives me:

Your request couldn't be completed because no server with the correct security settings was found to handle the request. If the problem continues, contact your helpdesk.

Any help would be great :)

You need to configure Exchange2003URL property on the CAS2010 OWA virtual directory.

OK I found this command and ran it without errors

get-owavirtualdirectory | Set-OWAVirtualDirectory -ExternalURL https://mail.mydomain.com/OWA -Exchange2003URL http://exch2003.mydomain.com/exchange

I then put in the 2010 domain name https://mail.mydomain.com/OWA comes up with the logon page> log in and I get.

Ahh ok, I was putting it in wrong this value is actually

<mailserver>\OWA*

mailserver\owa*

Why do they do that, just creates confusion for people not used to scripts.

Thanks for you help in this though... all working now

Really should make it simple for people not used to the way scripting works and take things @ face value.
