Exchange 2010: Outlook Profile Updating Incorrectly after Mailbox Move

We are in the process of moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  Clients are Outlook 2010.  After the mailbox is moved and Outlook is launched, some users can't connect to their mailbox.  When trying to recreate the profile Outlook autoconfigures and connects to the Exchange 2010 mailbox server instead of the CAS array.  The workaround is to hard code the CAS array in.  Anyone see this problem before?

We had an issue with autodiscover that was causing this problem.  The workstations were in one forest and Exchange was in another forest.  The forest the workstations were in already had Exchange installed in it, but for a different company.  The workstations needed to access a remote forest for Exchange.  The workaround for this was to create an entry in DNS.

the outlook will connect to the server, or cas array defined on the rpcclientaccessserver attribute of the 2010 mailbox database where the user is moved to.

do a get-mailboxdatabase |ft identity, rpcclient*

check what is defined there. if it's the server and you have a casarray, do:

set-mailboxdatabase -identity <dbname> -rpcclientaccessserver <casarrayname>

as for the 2003 to 2010 users profile not being updated, once the user is moved, and outlook is unable to connect, autodiscover will give them the correct settings. because you said that you can autoconfigure a profile with <next-next-finish> simple process I will assume that your autodiscover is working correctly.

please check the following setting on the profiles with problems. go to the account settings > more settings > security tab > and make sure that encrypt data between outlook and exchange is ticked. encryption is enabled by default on the server and that might be what's preventing the connection. once the new profile is created the setting is populated correctly.

you can use a GPO to change this to all users if that's your problem.
