Hi Experts,

I have EXCH2013 running with 3 nodes in a DAG.
For some users I have changed over to MAPI over HTTP.
But when I check the connection status, I have still some connections with RPC/HTTP
Is it normal or not ?

Hello,

when running Get-CASMailbox cmdlet for the mailbox which were enabled for MAPI/Http should show MapiHttpEnabled as "True".
If you configured some additional mailboxes that weren't enabled for MAPI, then those connections still be in rpc/http, may be thats the reason still you are seeing RPC/HTTP.
Which version of Outlook you are using ? you should use Outlook 2013 +

Thanks,

My outlook version is 2010.
The RPC/HTTP connections are from the public Folder DB.
The user is enabled for MAPIoverHTTP

If still connection status shows "RPC/HTTP", then please change the below registry keys.
Locate HKEYCURRENTUSERSoftwareMicrosoftExchange,  create a new DWORD “MapiHttpDisabled” with value 0.

oh ok, if your public folders are in legacy versions of Exchange, then you cant access it through latest clients like outlook 2013+.
Before you should move PF to Exchange 2013 environment.
