  • RPC over HTTP setup help

    Hello all,

    Scenario:
    Machine Name: mail
    Windows 2003 Standard w/all latest updates
    Exchange Enterprise 2003 w/all latest updates
    RPC over HTTP installed
    machine is a DC and GC
    DNS server AD integrated

    Machine Name: alpha
    Windows 2003 Standard w/all latest updates
    Exchange 2003 System Manger only w/all latest updates
    Holds all FSMO roles
    RPC over HTTP installed
    machine is a DC and GC
    DNS server AD integrated

    Machine Name: bes
    Windows 2000 Standard w/all the latest updates
    Exchange 2003 System Manger only w/all latest updates
    Running Blackberry Enterprise Server
    not a DC or GC

    The internal and external domain names for mail match, mail.mydomain.com.

    Externally resolves correctly, I can open OWA in my browser fine.

    Followed the instructions for a single server RPC setup, double checked my ports, both GCs have RPC installed.

    I've done this many times before but never with another GC on the network or with a machine runing the System Manager.

    Anything different that should be done here?

    Thanks

    Hello,
    It sounds me that you choose the multiple servers sceneries, it means that you will have different actors playing exiting rolls like Exchange front-end, Exchange back-end server, DC, rpc proxys and GC.
    There is a lot of thing to do and talk, I advise you to study a bit reading this Technet article: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro.../ex2k3rpc.mspx
    After you have identified the right scenery that fits your requirements follow the step by step guide.
    If you have concrete questions or issues please let me know.

      This is the same as single server scenario as the Exchange will always prefer itself as DC/GC unless configured explicitly.

      What SP level is the Exchange ? How have you configured the RPC proxy ?
      Try checking the obvious:
      - does the RPC/HTTPS client have the company's CA in trusted root store ?
      - are you using basic authentication on the client ?
      - have you added the external FQDN to the RPC proxy registry settings ?

        Guy,

        Thanks for the help, the client assured me they had restarted the system immediately after I made the registry changes but they hadn't. I waited until they closed and rebooted it, not because I didn't trust them (yeah right), just because I couldn't see anything else wrong and sure enough, go figure, they never rebooted!

        End users! Can't live with 'em, can't make a living without 'em!
