Hello all, I have installed Exchange  2010 but the users cannot view their out of office and some of the users cannot share their calendars.  I ran test-OutlookWebServices|fl and get the following errors, this also occurs when I try the Outlook test autoconnectivity.  Hope someone can assist me.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>test-OutlookWebServices -Identity:administrator@domain.org.au

Standard questions.

1. Are you using a commercial or self signed SSL certificate?
2. Does the name on the SSL certificate resolve internally to the internal IP address of the server?

Using a commercial SSL, the latest is I put a new zone into DNS - autodiscover.domain.org.au and if I now go to Outlook 2007 it asks for a password, I enter it and the out of office comes up.  In Outlook 2010 a Smart Card window comes up and you have to click cancel then the error message displays saying it cant find out of office assistant as the server is offline.  I have researched that problem and apparently KB2552348 is an issue, but I can't see that update on either my client machines or Exchange Server machine.

If the machines are on the domain then you shouldn't need either a password when starting Outlook or the autodiscover DNS record.

Check the value of this:

get-clientaccessserver | select Identity, AutodiscoverServiceInternalURI

The value should
a. Match a host name on the SSL certificate.
b. Resolve internally to the Exchange server.

Using a commercial certificate does take away a lot of the common problems.

Ran the command and nothing has come up.  I've solved the smart card window by adjusting Autodisocver and EWS SSL settings in IIS from accept to ignore.  The out of Office comes up now, but us that because I have put a new zone "autodiscover.domain.org.au" into DNS?  If I set the AutodiscoverServiceINternalURI to https://autodiscover.domain.org.au will this do the same and be cleaner?

Accept Client Certificates will cause problems and should be disabled as you have found.
You can change the value if you like - it doesn't really make much difference. If you are likely to have any clients on the network which are NOT members of the domain then having internal autodiscover work correctly would probably be a good thing.

Sorry, so best practice will be to set the internaluri to the external URL or just leave it?

Depends on whether you have the internal URL on the SSL certificate. If you don't then you will need to change it, plus have split DNS so that it resolves internally.
I am not aware of any best practise guidance in this area at all, because it is just DNS.
