Hi Folks,

Can anyone here please assist me with some explanation as to why after I changed the HT-CAS server role in my DR site, some of my users gets prompted to retype their credentials in their Outlook ?

Here’s the setting as at the moment

Physical SiteA – Domain.com (Main HQ)
HT-CAS1-Prod-VM (AD-Site-A)
HT-CAS2-Prod-VM (AD-Site-A)

CCR-MBX1-Prod-VM (AD-Site-A)

Physical SiteB – Domain.com (DR remote site)
HT-CAS1-DR-VM (AD-Site-A)
CCR-MBX2-DR-VM (AD-Site-A)
Previously the setting is bit different:

Physical SiteB – Domain.com (DR remote site)
HT-CAS1-DR-VM (AD-Site-B)
CCR-MBX2-DR-VM (AD-Site-B)
This was due to the CCR mailbox server needs to be in the same domain for me to be able to upgrade to SP3

When you added the new CAS/HT server in the DR site do you have the appropriate Certificates present on these servers?

You should have a SAN/UCC cert that has the following entries...
- autodiscover.domain.com
- mail.domain.com

Will, what is that certificate for ?

this prompt is from outlook internal user, there is no Outlook Anywhere enabled in all of my CAS server.

Somehow the only server who ask the credential is the DR HT-CAS server, both servers in production are ok.

Is this DR site isolated from your production network?

Are the virtual directories on the CAS server set accordingly? Where are they being prompted, from Outlook client?. Have you looked at the connection status on the outlook client to see what servers the client is authenticating to? Also what are your authentication settings set to on your DR servers?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Well during the DR test, the core switch link is disconnected so practically there is no connection. That is the reason why we hard coded all of the DR site exchange servers with Site-A to resume the mail flow.

And now the DR test has finished, the link back up and running again, the users across the company is now randomly prompted for pop up to type in their credentials? Not all just random people.

Yes the users is prompted in Outlook the first time they open the application.

Service Desk team ask those users to close and re open outlook but somehow the issue still remains, more random people is prompted with credentials pop up ?

Are the users using Outlook cached mode? Have you treid to re-create the OST file or have your users. Try changing that and seeing if that corrects it.
