SBS 2008 and Intermittent Outlook Anywhere Problems

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

We had a tech working on a migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 and everything was going good for him with his first migration. His customer relies heavily on Outlook Anywhere for the users and for the users connecting off the remote TS Server. I got called in and he had found a article on what it could be but wanted to make sure. I did some cleaning up of DNS and the Certs on the servers and then verified and corrected the client access server.

Still no luck so I looked over the article and thought well it was either this or calling PSS so what I ended up doing was going to C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\webapp\SBS Web Applications and then editing the web.conf file below

 

<modules>
<remove name=”HttptoHttpsRedir” />
<add name=”HttptoHttpsRedir” type=”Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.IWorker.IIS.Modules.HttpToHttpsRedir,HttpToHttpsRedir,Version=6.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ preCondition=”” />
</modules>

to:

<modules>
<remove name=”HttptoHttpsRedir” />
</modules>

I had to open notepad as a administrator then browse to this file to be able to edit the file. Saved the file and then had the onsite tech restart the server. Last I heard things was back to normal and working ok.

This came from http://blogs.technet.com/asksbs/archive/2008/12/10/intermittent-outlook-anywhere-connectivity-in-sbs-2008.aspx
