Autodiscovery on exchange 2013 error 10

Last Modified: 2014-05-25
I build a new exchange 2013 server and I install a godaddy certificate.
I run the following on exchange:

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity exchange -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://mail.XXX.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "exchange\EWS (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://mail.XXX.com/ews/exchange.asmx

Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity "exchange\oab (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://mail.XXX.com/oab

Set-OutlookProvider -Identity EXPR -CertPrincipalName msstd:mail.XXX.com

I'm still getting the error message bellow.
If I go to Outlook proxy settings it has exchange.XXX.local and not the mail.XXX.local

Strange is that few PC get the proper settings but most does not.
Any idea why?

Looks like you are setting up split-brain DNS. Did you configure these A records on your local DNS servers?


Yes I did.
I don't think the problem is on the server.
Everything there point to the external url.
Only 2 out of 10 computers has this problem were the exchange proxy resolve to the internal design even if I set it manually to the external one.
One thing I did on those two was that I click on install certificate when I first get the error before I even install the godady certificate on the server.
I try clear ssl on Ie but didn't work.

Hmm. Try this.

Set-OutlookAnywhere -ExternalHostName mail.xxx.com -ExternalClientAuthenticationMethod Basic -ExternalClientsRequireSSL $true -InternalHostName mail.xxx.com -InternalClientAuthenticationMethod NTLM -InternalClientsRequireSSL $true
