Outlook Anywhere keeps requesting the wrong domain??
Posted on 2014-01-28
Have a client setup which has been working for years. Exchange 2010 all patched up.
The domain that everything is set up as is say my-client.com
Everything is set up working great (autodiscover, all URI's, OWA, etc).
3rd Party Wildcard SSL Cert for installed.
Client decides to change the corporate identity to myclientgroup.co.uk
All Primary SMTP emails are set as myclientgroup.co.uk, and it is added as an accepted domain. MX records point to my-client.com records.
All mobile devices etc are still pointing to the old domain, because as the far as the system is concerned that is the only domain that matters.
However on a laptop with Outlook 2010, using Outlook Anywhere and proxy settings all pointing to my-client.com - when Outlook opens it complains that the cert is not matching, because it is looking for autodiscover.myclientgroup.co.uk and the SSL Cert is *.my-client.com
WHY is it asking for autodiscover of the new domain name, when everything still points to the old domain? As far as the system concerned the new domain is just an alias.
