Exchange 2013 Test-OutlookWebServices requires MailboxCredential parameter for Autodiscover: Outlook Provider to succeed

    Question

  • With Exchange 2013 shell when executing "Test-OutlookWebServices" I have to supply the -MailboxCredential  parameter in order for the "Autodiscover: Outlook Provider" to return success. E.g.

    Test-OutlookWebServices -clientaccessserver ex2013 -identity asenna@test.lab -MailboxCredential (get-credential test\asenna)

    If I change the MailboxCredential  to an that of an Exchange Administrator then the "Autodiscover: Outlook Provider" will return Failure.

    Running the command on an Exchange 2010 server for a 2010 mailbox does not require the MailboxCredential  parameter and always succeeds.

    Why the change for 2013?

  • Hi,

    Based on my experience, it will be more efficient to test web services by directly accessing their urls via IE.

    Thanks,

  • Hello!

    "it will be more efficient to test web services by directly accessing their urls via IE." - so the answer is "Don't use Test-OutlookWebServices"?

    And  there's not explanation to "Why the change for 2013?"?

    Regards,

    Michael

  • Allow me to to translate for you Michael.  "it will be more efficient to test web services by directly accessing their urls via IE." means "We don't give a crap about on premise Exchange 2013 because we're pouring all of our resources in to office365"
