  • RPC-HTTP on 2 Servers GC problem?

    Hi there im new here but ofc i've use the guides several times

    I have run into a problem with the configuration of rpc-http. I have 2 servers 1DC and 1Memberserver with Exchange. I have setup the Exchange server according to the guide, with everything incl SSL cert and so on. But it wont work with outlook at all. Im confused about where the rpc-http and GC should be. I have the DC with GC and rpc-http running. And i have the Member server with Exchange running (where i configured all according to guide, exclusive rpc-http).
    The owa works perfect and the SSL works perfect. The https://server/rpc gives the 403 error thou.
    When i test outlook: outlook.exe /rpcdiag it displays my internal servername and not the external as your pic shows.

    Well my main question is: How should the Setup be? And what roles should the servers have? Witch server should have rpc-http? Is it a good idea to move GC from the DC to the member server?

    This can not be changed:
    1. DC with GC
    2. Member server with Exchange

    Hope to get some help this is very importent for me

    Are your domain controllers Windows 2003? If not, then the feature will not work.

    You may want to look at my post in this topic: http://forums.petri.com/showthread.php?t=12359

    I have outlined the most common problems with RPC over HTTPS.

      Thx alot this has helped me move towards my goal.
      To simplyfy my question: Where do i install RPC-HTTP Proxy?

      On the Member server that runs Exchange and the IIS?
      Or the DC with the GC?

      BTW both server run 2003, and all other requirements are fullfilled

        Well it's working now thx alot!
        Solution for me on the Separate Exchange and Domain Controller Configuration was that you install RPC-HTTP on the Exchange server with IIS and NOT the DC with GC i guess i got confused!

        So Here it is!!
        Make these registry if you have same configuration as me

        Separate Exchange and Domain Controller Configuration
        Where Exchange is on a member server - not the same server as the domain controller and NOT a front-end/back-end configuration.

        Key:
        exchange-server = Exchange Server
        dc = Domain Controller with Global Catalog
        domain.local = Internal domain name
        mail.external.com = External certificate/domain name

        (remember: single line before saving as a registry file)
        Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\RpcProxy]
        "ValidPorts"="
        exchange-server:100-5000;
        exchange-server:6001-6002;
        exchange-server.domain.local:6001-6002;
        dc:6001-6002;
        dc.domain.local:6001-6002;
        exchange-server:6004;
        exchange-server.domain.local:6004;
        dc:6004;
        dc.domain.local:6004;
        mail.external.com:6001-6002;
        mail.external.com:6004;
        dc:593;
        dc.domain.local:593;
        exchange-server:593;
        exchange-server.domain.local:593;
        mail.external.com:593;"
