Exchange 2013: Issue with Autodiscover over Outlook anywhere

HI,

I have exchange server 2013 with only external outlook anywhere clients connecting to.  No internal.  I have a public SRV record configured for autodiscover.  This was working great for at least a month or so, but now when I try to do something like automatic replies it comes back saying the server is unavailable.

I have tested using the Microsoft remote connectivity analyser for Outlook Anywhere and the AutoDiscover.  I've also done a manual autoconfiguration test in outlook and it discovers the srv record fine.  Browsering to https://mail.mydomain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml is fine as well.

This doesn't seem like a particular service that just stops working.  Does anyone have an idea on what I can do?

Hi,

First please check if your automatic forward / reply is configured correctly:
http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/automaticreply.htm

Check which URL your Outlook is using to configure the OOF, and if you can browse to it:
http://www.proexchange.be/blogs/exchange2007/archive/2009/07/14/your-out-of-office-settings-cannot-be-displayed-because-the-server-is-currently-unavailable-try-again-later.aspx

And lastly please check your autodiscover service, here is a description of this issue:

and here is the troubleshooting tips for autodiscover: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2008/02/13/3404883.aspx

hi,

All settings and test have reported back positive.  The only thing I notice different to my setup is that anonymous access is enabled on my EWS virtual directory... I will try and disable this and test later.

If all test were successful try to reconfigure all your virtual directories

I've found the issue.  A DNS issue.  Someone had added a wildcard dns entry on the e-mail domain i'm using.
