I have three VMs running on VMWare ESXi: Domain Controller, Exchange Server 2013 and desktop with Outlook 2013. All of them running Windows Server 2012. OWA works fine, but when I'm trying to use Outlook i get:

The action cannot be completed. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.

All machines are in domain (lab.local). Tried running on Exchange server Test-MAPIConnectivity -Identity "administrator@lab.local" on Exchange Management console - result is success. Also all DNS entries are seem to be fine. What should I do next? Maybe I should set up autodiscover (if it's necessary)?

You need a cname or autodiscover record setup. Also need to configure outlook anywhere.
