  • RPC over HTTP deployement senario ?

    I have been looking into deploying RPC over HTTP in our environment and believe it would be a great addition. Currently we have 2 Domain Controllers running Server 2003 and also a dedicated box for Exchange 2003 Std Edition. On all of the deployment scenarios I could find they are either about deploying on a single box that is your global catalog server and has exchange on it or in a environment where you have an exchange front-end server/back-end server's. Since I am in a multi-server environment that currently does not have a front-end/back-end scenario is RPC over HTTP possible?

    Yes it is and it doesn't require Exchange to be on a DC\GC. Do a Google search for Exchange Server 2003 RPC over HTTP Deployment Scenarios.doc to find the info on the various scenarios or send me a private message with your email address and I'll email the document to you.

      Would my scenario still be considered a single server deployment scenario ?

        If you only have one Exchange server, then yes.

          There seems to be an awful lot of confusion on RPC over HTTPS scenarios, which doesn't help with Microsoft's documentation appearing that you can only deploy the feature on a single server with SBS, or with full product using a frontend/backend scenario.

          As already pointed out if you have Exchange on a dedicated machine then you have a single server scenario and need to make registry changes to both the Exchange server and at least one of the domain controllers - which must be a Windows 2003 DC/GC.

          Daniel has a version of instructions elsewhere on this web site, I have slightly different instructions here:

          Do ensure that you are using a commercial SSL certificate, if you are not then you will have many problems.

            Awesome post Sembee! That was exactly what I was looking for, it clears up a lot of confusion!
