Hi Experts,

Main Server : Exchange 2007 on windows server 2008
Front End Server : Windows Server 2003 R2

We installed a new front end mail server in preparation for a move to a new site(SRV22).

We arent ready to use it yet but will be in a few months... our current front end mail server (SRV9) is still going to be operational until then...

However it would seem that SRV22 has managed to get itself in the auto configuration as the Internal OWA URL, instead of SRV9.

As a result nobody can set out of office as it tries to use SRV22.

When I look at the auto configuration on any client the external OWA URL is correct, however the internal OWA URL has SRV22 in it... https://SRV22.xxxx.com/owa

Can anyone advise me what I can do to change this please?

Thanks

Gardman

It isn't OWA that is the problem. It is Autodiscover.

get-clientaccessserver | select identity, autodiscoverserviceinternalURI

That information is published to the domain by all client access servers. Therefore it should be the same.

You need to change it on the new server to match the old server.

My guide for Exchange 2010 works for 2007 as well - just ignore the ECP bits.
