  • Autodiscovery

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this issue has been before but I could not find answers via search button and to tell you the truth I am hammered after two days trying to solve this thing!
    I have a fresh install of SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007. The problem is with Out of Office Assistant which comes down to Autodiscovery not working. I think I have tried everything but maybe Im missing something simple here. I would really appreciate your help!

    Re: Autodiscovery

    Standard question for SBS - was it configured using the wizards?
    If not, then that will be a cause of the problems.
    If it was, did they complete correctly?
    Have you run the fix my network wizard from within the SBS management console?

    Have you applied any service packs to Exchange 2007? If so, and it was SP2, was it deployed using the SBS tool?
