I have installed an Exchange 2013 Mail server on our network following the Microsoft guide on migrating from an Exchange 2010 to 2013 server. I am at the point where I have both servers running side by side with the 2013 server proxying the 2010, and am preparing to move mailboxes.
I moved one mailbox that was created before the AD Schema was updated by the 2013 install, and the user could not log into Outlook after the mailbox migration had been completed (and syncing active directory). I ran the Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer and discovered that this user was getting a 401 error when accessing the AutoDiscover URL.
At this point, I ran a backup of the server before proceeding to make some test changes that might break the system. After the backup completed, the user could log in without any error. With the error fixed and not wanting to disturb any other users, I created 3 more test accounts which I then tested migrating, and they could log in fine immediately.
As suggest in a post I migrated another user (failed to AutoDiscover) and restarted the Information Store which had no effect. I then restarted another service which failed to restart, forcing me to reboot the server. After the server finished rebooting, the user was able to connect fine to the Exchange Server.
I have also applied the following commands to try and force RPC over HTTPS:
Set-OutlookProvider EXPR -OutlookProviderFlags:ServerExclusiveConnect Set-OutlookProvider EXCH -OutlookProviderFlags:ServerExclusiveConnect
as specified in http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/05/23/ambiguous-urls-and-their-effect-on-exchange-2010-to-exchange-2013-migrations.aspx with no apparent effect.
I have also tried manually specifying the connection details, but when checking the name of the user, I receive an error 'Outlook cannot log on...' followed by 'The name cannot be resolved' when querying against the 2013 server. If I change the server name to the 2010, it finds the user and the server name changes back to the 2013 with both underlined. However when starting Outlook, I receive the error 'The server is unavailable'.
Has anyone experienced this before? Any idea where this permission update needs to happen without a backup or rebooting the server?
Please let me know if there are any details about the servers that would help with solving this error.
