I need help. JOB on the line.
Exchange 2010 went offline today due to CPU and memory bottlenecking. Got it back up and clean but users can't get it from external networks. OWA if good, VPN, Local, all good.
Figure it is something with Outlook Anywhere port 6001 is open, certs are fine, and all should be good.
users get prompted, over and over and never allowed to authenticate in.

Any Idea I have been all over, re-enabled Outlook Anywhere, cleared client credentials, checked and rechecked and still no progress.

May be may cause to this error here is some helpful Step and link.

Did you check the authentication of the Outlook under Exchange Proxy Settings? Basic or NTLM? That should be the same as the server side which you configured on the Outlook Anywhere.

Additionally, please save passwords by using following method on the client:

a. Run control userpasswords2
b. Under Advanced tab, click Manage Passwords
c. Please add following entry:

Log on to: *.domainname (such as *.microsoft.com)
Username: domain\username
Password: password

Then, please restart the client to check whether we still need to provide password when log on Outlook.


Second one is You'r OL Anywhere possibly isn't set to Windows Integrated Authentication

Third one is

Autodiscover is resolvable via DNS from outside, right?

Also, check all of your internal URI's. In my environments, I set the internal URI to be the same as the external URI for each one.

Here is a good reference.

Thanks for the response, The client still prompts and never reaches. We can resolve from outside and the internal URI is properly.
I did get an RPC 14 error running the autodiscover from outside.
This all was working yesterday and the server was rebooted and then the issues started. We are listening of 6001 and Anywhere is configured and enabled properly.

Do you have Split-DNS in place?

Please check from LAN & WAN
nslookup autodiscover-url
nslookup outlook-anywhere-url
nslookup casarray-url

All users, see a RPC over HTTP error 14 on test, no Split-DNS and resolve external to url proper.

Read something about valid_ports but don't know much and why it would be an issue after it was working as is for so long.

RPC service was the main issue. But during the initial crash IIS hung, and services dumped. Had to fix the IIS, redo many authentication setting therein and reset IIS. Then restarted all Exchange service and the RPC. This resolved the issue.
