I recently installed the CAS role on an internal mail server in an attempt to move CAS to that server instead of an outward facing web server (which also happens to be the DC).
After installing CAS on the mail server, I removed CAS from the original server. However, all Outlook clients are STILL trying to connect to the previous server! For existing accounts, the Exchange server address is read-only and I cannot even change it to the new server name:
As you can see, I can't even change the address. I need to change it to the new server name, which on the client machine DNS is able to resolve FINE to the proper IP.
When I create a NEW account in outlook, I put in the new CAS server's address and upon clicking CHECK NAME, the server name field is automatically rewritten to the old CAS server!
I can put in the IP, NETBIOS, or DNS name of the internal CAS server and every time I CHECK NAME, the name gets automatically replaced with the old CAS server name (also the DC) and Outlook cannot connect.
Note: OWA works perfect to the new CAS server.
I'm at the end of my rope. The only ideas I have as to what this can be are: 1) Something in the AD name checking mechanism is forcing the client to use the old CAS address. No idea where I go to configure that.
2) A setting in Exchange needs to be set in order to make the new CAS server the default. But I already removed all references to the old CAS server in EMC and set the new CAS server address in all Client Access settings.
3) Could there be something in the 'Autodiscover' configuration that is screwing things up?
