I have wasted so much time on this that I am hoping someone can hold my hand and take me through some basic steps.
I have two servers both running Server 2012 Standard.
x 1 = Mainserver01 Domain Controller
x 1 = Mainserver02 Exchange 2013
At this time I am only interested in getting my internal clients to connect via outlook and this is proving to be the most difficult thing I have ever encountered.
I have previously deployed a single server that hosted both the Domain Controller and Exchange and all went well. This could be internal DNS related as I am not an expert but I am open and happy to try anything. Happy to carry out tests again and again if it means I get this sorted with your help.
Internally I can connect via https://servername.internaldomain.local/owa
Mail sends and receives via this and all is good.
However, I cannot get any outlook clients to connect.
When I start up (for example) Outlook 2010, it automatically fills in the users details and they all appear to be correct. I get
Establish network connection - Ticked Green
Search for email@example.com
m server settings - Ticked Green
Then it hangs at log on to server and says: The action cannot be completed. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.
When I click OK, I am presented with the check name screen and it shows the GUID long number as the exchange server firstname.lastname@example.org
and =SMTP: email@example.com
m. If i click OK I can enter the settings manually which I do as follows:
I click More Settings and then go to the Connection Tab and tick Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP and click Exchange Proxy Settings.
In there I complete "https://mainserver02.internaldomain.local
I tick on fast networks
I select NTLM (i have tried them all at some point!)
It simply will not connect... anyone got any suggestions??
Hope so ... its an experts exchange! :)
