Exchange 2007 + Outlook 2010 Asking for password

Current Environment

srv1 - Hub Transport, CAS, Mailbox - Exchange 2007 SP3
srv2 - CAS, Mailbox - Exchange 2007 Sp1 rollup 10
srv3 - CAS, Mailbox - Exchange 2007 Sp1 rollup 10
srv4 - CAS, Mailbox - Exchange 2007 Sp1 rollup 8


We have recently upgraded srv1 to exchange sp3 from Exchange sp1. This server was upgraded to try to eliminate the outlook asking for a password. Clients connected to srv1 still are getting this issue.

Clients are running Windows 7 + Outlook 2010
we have removed, KB2553248 which removed half of the issue, laptop users now no longer get prompted for smart card , but desktop users are still getting prompted for a password.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello

Did you had autodiscovery configured on the Exchange and the client? Usually that is happening when autodiscovery is not OK.

All Exchnage servers should be at the same service pack and rollup level

CAS servers should be upgraded before mailbox servers.

Are you using RPC over HTTPS or MAPI for your Outlook clients ?

Clients connect via RPC over HTTPS, Auto-discover is configured correctly, also tested with exchange connectivity analyzer.

Just to clarify a few things,

Users get the password prompt and are unable to enter credentials at all.

This issue seams to only exist in 2010+Windows 7 environment.

At this stage bring all servers upto exchange 2007 sp3, will let you know how it goes.



Thank you for your help so far.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I have just updated all servers to Exchange 2007 SP3,the issue is still occurring any help would be greatly appreciated.

"Users get the password prompt and are unable to enter credentials at all."

Do you mean they can't type in the box, or it does not accept the password?  There was a windows update a couple of weeks ago that cleared cached credentials and if your mail was set to Basic authentication you had to put your username and password in again in the format domain\username then password.

The user is unable to type any details into the dialogue box. Using NTLM auth.

You should configure Basic auth on the servers and on the clients.
tonyperth

Assuming that these computers are on the same domain as the exchange server there is a slight chance it may be a problem with cached credentials.  On one of the effected machine open Control Panel \ User Accounts \ Credential Manager.  If you see anything in there refering to your mailserver delete it, reboot and see if outlook will open then.
