Restart "Autdodiscover service" without rebooting server? (Because Godaddy SSL certificate install) RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi,

     

    We are not able to restart the Autodiscover service from Services.msc tool. Actually, the autodiscover service is a mechanism that helps Outlook clients find out the CAS related configuration. It is hardcoded in Outlook client; it is used to configure and maintain server settings for Outlook. That’s why we are not able to find this service form the server side. For more information, please refer to the Microsoft articles below:

    Understanding the Autodiscover Service

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124251.aspx

     

    To apply the change on Autodiscover virtual directory, run “IISreset /noforce”. The change will then stamped on SCP (Service Connection Point) object.

     

    I appreciate your updating and sharing your experience for the issue you are encountering. Just a reminder, the parameter InternalUrl of cmdlet “Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory” specifies the URL used to connect to the virtual directory from inside the network firewall. It is NOT the URL to access autodiscover service.

     

    Refer to:

    Set-ClientAccessServer

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125157.aspx

    Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory

    All the best J

  • Haven't figured out how to restart the Autodiscover service but I did find that AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri was set wrong:

    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ClientAccessServer | fl AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri

    AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri : https://mail01.localdomain.local/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml

    Issued this:

    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity MAIL01 -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri "https://client.myinternetdomain.tld/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml"

    and now I don't get the Certificate mismatch warning when opening Outlook so far.

  • Fiona,

    Would Address Book generation be affected by the Autodiscover Virtual Directory ?

    If the generating server were changed to a new server and no IIS reset was performed.
