  • when SBS Web Applications are turned on all Outlook ask credentials

    Server 2008

    Hi,

    When I turn on SBS Web Applications from IIS, which activates websites such as OWA, all the outlooks on the network start asking for credentials at random times... Ignoring the credential box doesn't suspend outlook operations. You can continue sending and receving emails... I don't know why this is happening. I've pretty much installed all avaialble updates out there. Nothing works. Currently SBS Web Applications is disabled. So cannot access email from the web.

    Please help!

      I'm confused... is this Windows Server 2008 or SBS 2008?

          Hi Cengiz,

          I have a workaround for this, give it a try ;

          1.Go into IIS Manager
          2.Open SBS Web Applications
          3.Select Autodiscover
          4.Go into SSL settings
          5.Tick "accept" instead of "ignore" or "require"
          6.Press apply
          7.Repeat for owa, remote, Rpc, RpcWithCert and restart IIS


          I hope it works


          Ste

            Hi Ste,

            I've just changed the SSL settings for all the components in the SBS Web Applications folder... Closed outlook, and opened it again. I wasn't prompted with a credentials window. So it looks like the problem is solved. But I'll test for the rest of the week. My OWA is up and running now.

            But wanted ask, does this work around have any security implications?

            Thanks for your help,

            Cengiz
