We have exch 2007 and exch 2010 running together so that we can migrate to 2010 but we are having an issue with OWA from the outside. We get the error Outlook We Access could not connect to exchange..
We have the legacy in place and tested ok but we keep getting this from OWA. Is this an issue with an IIs setting possibly or where should I check?

Hello,

How did you access OWA from outside? By 2010 or 2007 url? Have you disabled your ExternalURL on the exchange 2007 box?

Yes, you will have to disable External Url on Exchange 2007.

Please refer to the below article's for more information on the upgrade path from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010.

Make sure that you have set ExternalURL in Exchange 2010

Set-OWAVirtualDirectory <CAS2010>\OWA* -ExternalURL https://mail.contoso.com/OWA

It should look like this:

2007  CAS

Internal URL https://server.contoso.com/owa

External URL https://legacy.contoso.com/owa

2010  CAS

Internal URL https://server.contoso.com/owa

External URL https:// mail.contoso.com/owa

Also, can you try to restart IIS?

Check this link, it will give you a lot of details for OWA coexistence:

Found the issue...
The legacy was not pointing to one of the CAS servers. Once I made that change, all was good....

One more item if I could run past you...
We found now if we add the users to the 2010 exch, if they don't have the following security rights that cant get past the exch 2010 login screen: we have to go into advanced security permissions and set them for each user for Windows Authentication Read properties, then they are able to login...
Any idea what this maybe?
