  • Exchange 2010 OWA Redirect

    When I enter the OWA internal URL as its displayed on the 2010 server which is https://CAS-Server.domainname.local it automatically redirects to https://webmail.domainname.com/owa/ and HTTP 404 error.

    Why does it redirect to https://webmail.domainanme.com/owa with the error: HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.

    Once this works internally, I will then test externally.

    Under IIS 7 --> Default Web Site --> On the right hand pane--> Click HTTP Redirect and make sure you have NOT setup any redirection.

    Please let us know your find...cheers

      On the properties of the OWA virtual directory in EMC, ensure that the internal and external URLs are configured with the correct names. If you want to use a different name internally, then that needs to configured and also needs to be one of the additional names in your SSL certificate.

        Please see that you have configured the correct domain. It will be your local domain/active directory domain with whatever name you had configured it.
        Internal URL will pull up with https only and you have to treat it as trusted and the internal URL will pull up without any issues.

          On the CAS the owa internal URL is https://CAS-Server.domain.local/owa
          If I enter that full URL it goes into 2010 OWA no problem. But if I take off the /owa at the end and use https://CAS-Server.domain.local/ it redirects to https://webmail.domainname.com/owa/ but I get the HTTP Error 404 - File or page could not be found.

          So the redirection seems to be working as it brings me to the correct link but still gives me the error 404.

          I followed these two URLs below regarding OWA redirection but still the same problem.

            Re: Exchange 2010 OWA Redirect

            ok I changed the internal DNS record for webmail.domainname.com to the Exchange 2010 Server's IP address and after about 30 minutes it worked.

            Now the question is, if I change the internal URL of the owa on the 2010 to https://webmail.domainname.com/owa will it still redirect to if someone types in webmail.domainanme.com ?

            Thanks!

              The problem isn't Exchange, because Exchange doesn't do that redirection for you, it is an issue with how you have setup the redirection.

              You should configure the redirection to use a path such as /owa rather than host.example.com/owa - then it doesn't matter which URL is used, it will be directed to the same place.

              Otherwise what you have configured is known as a split DNS system. Most sites I work on will have one of those so that the external and internal URL works everywhere.
