So today we had a requirement to start using Outlook Anywhere (Outlook over RPC) on our Exchange 2010 server, the setup is dead easy:
Logon to your CAS server,
Install the server feature “RPC over HTTP Proxy”,
Open the Exchange Management consol and go to Server Configuration and Client Access, Click Enable Outlook Anywhere,
Use your domain (you dont need HTTP/S), choose your authentication and if you need to offload your certificate to another server:
Thats the Exchange bit done.
Next change your DNS:
Locally and externally you need two things; an A record and a SRV record both need to point at Autodicsover.DOMAIN.ORG, here’s two examples from 123 reg:
Finally make sure 443 is allow through your Firewall.
Last but not least test with:
Ok so now onto the UPN bit, in my case my email differed from my domain i.e. my domain is bohemian.local and my email domain is bohemiangrove.co.uk.
What this means is when logging on via Outlook I get prompted to type domain and password:
If you’d rather not do this then you need to add your email domain as a UPN suffix.
To do this, on a DC open: Active Directory Domains and Trusts
rom the displayed context menu, click Properties.
On the properties box that appears, in the Alternative UPN suffixes field, specify the desired alternate UPN suffix for the domain and click Add.
Apply and ok. Finally open Active Directory Users and Computer
Find a user and under User logon name section, choose the alternate UPN suffix from the drop-down list that was created earlier in Active Directory Domains and Trusts snap–in.
Then test Outlook Anywhere using the users email as the username.
