EXCH2007 - cannot enable OutlookAnywhere

Hi Experts,

on my old EXCH2007 system I want to activate OutlookAnywhere to do the migration to EXCH2013.
But this is not possible:

See the error:

[PS] C:\>Enable-OutlookAnywhere -DefaultAuthenticationMethod:Ntlm -ExternalHostn
ame mobile.haus.at -SSLOffloading $false -Server CL03EX
Enable-OutlookAnywhere : Der Exchange-Server 'CL03EX' wurde nicht gefunden.
Stellen Sie sicher, dass er richtig eingegeben wurde.
In Zeile:1 Zeichen:1
+ Enable-OutlookAnywhere -DefaultAuthenticationMethod:Ntlm -ExternalHostname
mobil ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

   , ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 10AF0D52,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemCon

Open in new window

Do you know why ?

Try this...."Enable-OutlookAnywhere -DefaultAuthenticationMethod:Ntlm -ExternalHostname:mobile.haus.at -SSLOffloading $false -Server:CL03EX"

I think that is what Spencer is talking about.  Note the two additional ":" that were added.

Look here for an example:  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124993(v=exchg.80).aspx

Looks like you're missing the : after -externalhostname and -server.

what you mean ?

Doesn't the error state that the Exchange server cannot be found?


The Exchange server 'CL03EX' was not found.
Make sure it is entered correctly.

it is possible, but it wasn´t the HUBCAS server :-)
