Exchange 2010 - Autodicover / Mac not working after upgrade.

I had a 2007 SBS server that was messed up (wouldn't take updates).

I install a new 2007 server, moved all the mail over, and force the old 2007 exchange server down.

Then I installed exchange 2010 and moved all the mail to that server.

That seems to be working ok, but something is up with autodiscover and remote access and I'm getting a lot of calls from remote users.

I can get Iphones, win phones and Win Outlook to work.  but not Outlook on Mac.


I found some articles that maybe my auto discover was messed up so I tried the following and got an error.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity CAS_Server_Name -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://mail.ext.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml
The operation couldn't be performed because object 'CAS_Server_Name' couldn't be found on 'OLDEXCHANGE.domain.local'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Set-ClientAccessServer], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 5C904EB3,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.SetClientAccessServer



If you notice the error is spitting the name of the original exchange server (the one that is now shut down).


Any ideas on what to do next?

Did you create new certificates for autodiscover?

clonyxlro: I've already run the commands from that article and I get the errors above.

Aindelicato: I loaded a new UCC SSL with remote.ext.com, mail.ext.com, autodiscover.ext.com server.domain.local

The reason you are getting the old Exchange server in the error isn't because it was Exchange, but because it was a domain controller. When Exchange is installed on a DC, the only DC that Exchange will use is that one.

Therefore I expect that you still have references to the old server in the domain.
You said that you forced the server down - what exactly did you do? Did you DCPROMO the server out? Exchange and AD are very sensitive and if you don't remove everything then you will get a mess. You are going to have to clean up the domain before everything will settle down correctly.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

I got those commands to run (turns out I didn't replace the server name in both places on the command).

so I've run all the commands.

I've installed a NEW SSL with Mail.ext.com as the main name.

Outlook and everything else is still fine. but MAC outlook will still not connect.  It does the initial setup, but then spits a generic error when it tries to open.

Also - I ran all the tests on the MS exchange test web site come back with no errors.

Found the answer:  the EWS folder in IIS did not have basic authentication turned on.

change permission in IIS console - just enable basic authentication, and I added the default domain in the options.
