Fatal Autodiscover failure EXPR = <Null>

Hi guys,

I am getting this while running:
test-outlookconnectivity -protocol:http

The client does not have Outlook Anywhere enabled, although this is one of our monitoring tests we do, to test the environment.

This was working until we decom'd Exchange 2003 and has error'd out since.

I've attached a copy of the error we're getting.

We've just installed SP3 in order to attempt to resolve it. No resolution found.
We've also tried to set the EXPR certprincipalname to the msstd:mail.domain.com but this did not resolve the problem.
We've also uninstalled and reinstall the RPC over HTTPS component, no resolution.

Has anyone else seen this issue please?

This is what I would expect if Outlook Anywhere isn't enabled.
Therefore the answer is simple - either enable Outlook Anywhere or remove the test.

I assumed that originally, but the fact that the error started coming up since we decom'd Exchange, it may be a coincidence with our monitoring team adjusting things their end.

Thanks Simon.
