Exchange 2013 Outlook Anywhere
Posted on 2015-02-15
I have just recently migrated a server from Exchange 2007 to 2013. Apart from going a little slowly, it had no real troubles.
Now that we've got the mailboxes over and 2007 removed, Outlook clients cannot connect. When they try, they get "The attempt to log on to Microsoft Exchange has failed.". I've read a heap of different notes about SSL, host names, authentication methods, RCP back end - but nothing seems to help. I cannot connect internally or externally. I've tried with a variety of different Outlook versions, all with the same result.
I'm using a wild card cert, and I think I've got it correctly configured, i.e. autodiscover presents msstd:*.domain.com.
Extremely frustratingly the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer reports no problems at all.
Checking the HTTP/RPC logs, I can see that my attempts are getting are getting HTTP status codes of 401, but the Microsoft tool is getting 200s, and working fine, but other than reading the status codes, I can't make much sense of the logs.
Do you all have any suggestions on how I can track down the problem?
