Exchange 2003 - Mobile sync stopped working for two users

Posted on 2013-01-23

We have two users whose phone stopped working suddenly after a server reboot. No updates were performed. I'm not sure why the server was rebooted though.

All other users work fine except for these two users. Tried different phones as well and no luck. OWA and Outlook work fine for these users and Outlook Mobile Access is enabled for the users as well. Not too familiar with Exchange 2003.

I don't see any errors relating to the issue.

Ideas on what I should check?

The permissions were already being inherited.

Okay - wasn't sure if that would be the reason, but worth ruling out.

Can you please run the Activesync test on and post the results for one of the problem users.

Specify manual server settings so that you don't try to use Autodiscover.

It was permissions but down deeper on in AD. Sadly I do not recall exactly where it was for the changes I made.
