Exchange 2007 & 2010 CAS servers with Outlook 2010 clients

Posted on 2012-08-15

I am having a weird issue.  Since we are going to migrate from Exchange 2007 to 2010, I am still configuring my 2010 installation, I have some of my Outlook 2010 clients being re-directed to the Exchange 2010 CAS server which is not setup correctly.  I am still waiting on a new SSL Certificate but right now my Exchange 2007 users are automatically connecting to the 2010 CAS server through their Outlook 2010 clients.   So far I can only see this issue on 2010 clients but 2007 & 2003 clients seem ok.  Any ideas?

    You can manually create a host entry in Host files on the machine and point them to CAS 2007 ..... are teir mailboxes moved to Excahneg 2010 ... is their database pointing to 2010 CAS server ?

    You can run a command

    Get-MailboxDatabase for the server and check the "RpcClientAccessServer" ... if its pointing to 2010CAS the users will connect to that server.

    The end users are still on 2007.  The Outlook 2010 clients Outlookanywhere option for some odd reason points to the 2010 CAS which isn't fully setup yet.    I only have a few test accounts on 2010.

    I ran the Get-MailboxDatabase on my 2010 CAS and it is pointing to the 2010 MBD.
