  • Outlook asking for Username and Password

    This started a the forest root server replacement. The outlook client is not using the RPC over HTTP feature. I have read many articles on the Internet and nothing has worked. If you click save username and password on the outlook client it does not save. I have tried all the registry hacks suggested and none of these work either. After testing, I removed these settings.

    I have a cluster exchange setup as follows and the names have been changed to protect the innocent below:
    exchange1_backend_server
    exchange2_backend_server
    exchange1_frontend_server
    exchange2_frontend_server
    exchange_clustername_to_point_to_active_node_in_dn s

    GC domain controllers being used by exchange:
    MasterForestRootDC1
    SecondaryDC2
    SecondaryDC3

    Please note that OWA - Webmail works fine without any problems.

    Outlook works okay after opening and typing username and password, but Outlook ask everytime you open it regardless if you click save or not.

    I will point out that this occured after the second Tuesday in the month when Microsoft pushds out updates which was just a coincidence that was when we replaced the Master Domain controller (forest root server).

    Any help will greatly be appreciated.

    What is the relationship between the clients and Exchange?
    Different forest? You should not get any username and password prompt at all if the clients are in the same forest, or there is a trust involved.
