  • Outlook Anywhere in Exchange 07

    Greetings,

    I'm trying to figure out how to get outlook anywhere to work on my Exchange 2007/2003.
    Here is my environment...

    All my users (95%) are running on Exchange 2003 with Outlook Anywhere.
    Now I deployed Exchange 2007 into the environment as a Front-end server.

    When I enabled Outlook Anywhere on 2007. The 2007 users be able to access outlook anywhere from the external. But users who still on 2003 would not be able to access outlook anywhere externally. It's seems like 2007 is not communicating with 2003 via outlook anywhere.

    internally 2007 and 2007 are communicating fine.

    What am I missing here. does any has a simular environment as I am?

    Thank you.
    HN

    You will need to indirectly point your clients to the Exchange 2003 OWA site by using
    https: // mail.company.com / exchange (not /owa) for your 2003 users

    EDIT -- remind me next time to READ the original post properly and remember that Outlook Anywhere is NOT the same as Outlook Web Access. Apologies for confusing the issue

      What exactly have you deployed, because there is no such thing as "Frontend Server" for Exchange 2007.

      If you have deployed Exchange 2007, then as long as it is a server with the Client Access Role, not the mailbox role, and is not in the DMZ, then it should work correctly.
      You do need to configure your Exchange 2003 server as a backend server in the RPC-HTTP tab on the server properties in ESM.

      Furthermore, clients on Exchange 2003 will not get the Outlook Anywhere settings from autodiscover, because they are on the older version of Exchange. You will need to configure those clients manually.

        Simon,

        Exchange 2003 is working correctly with exchange 2007 internally, even owa also working correctly externally. Users on 2003 can access their mailbox via 2007 CAS.

        My problem now is the "Outlook anywwhere" Exchange 2007 outlook anywhere is working fine.
        I also configure Exchange 2003 as backend server in the RPC-HTTP tab. before I did this initial post. But it wasn't working. Do I need to reboot Exchange 2003 server before it take the effect? That is one thing I did not do.

        I hate to call Microsoft if missed something that is so simple.. Beside it would cost me $250 if I call Microsoft

        Please advise.

          There is no need to reboot the server, although it doesn't do any harm.
          The only other thing I can suggest is that you make the required registry changes manually on the Exchange 2003 server ONLY. These are documented in numerous places on the Internet.

            Simon,

            Are you referred to this registry edit bellow? I follow that procedure but I cannot find "MSExchangeServiceHost\RpcHttpConfigurator\" on my exchange03 server. So I'm not sure what Im missing there.
            Do you mind to direct me to one of the registry edit link that you are referring too?
            I appreciate all your help.

            Thanks,


            C&P from TechNet.
            Procedure
            To use Registry Editor to disable the RPCHttpConfigurator
            1. On the Client Access server, log on by using the Exchange administrator account, and then start Registry Editor (regedit).
            2. In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSExchangeServiceHost\RpcHttpConfigurator\
            3. Right-click the PeriodicPollingMinutes DWORD value, and then click Modify.
            4. In Edit DWORD Value, in the Value Data box, enter 0.
            5. Click OK to save your changes.

              Not really sure where you found that registry entry.

              I am referring to the RPC over HTTPS configuration. Back before Exchange 2003 SP1, the feature had to be configured manually.

              Oddly enough, the first hit is straight to this very site.
