Yet anothe test-owaconnectivity problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Up till a month or so ago the SCOM OWA External Connectivity monitor was happy.  However as of late it is always failing with the following error: The test received an unexpected response to an Outlook Web Access request.
    URL: https://external.domain.com/owa/

    My configuration is two CAS servers load balanced using MS NLB.  The NLB cluster FQDN is mail.domain.pvt.  The CAS servers are CAS1.domain.pvt and CAS2.domain.pvt.  The OWA Internal and External URLs on the CAS servers are configured as mail.domain.pvt and external.domain.com respectively.  The external FQDN is an ISA 2006 server proxying the requests to OWA using FBA.

    I cannot figure out why it is failing with this message.  Every combination of test-OWConnectivity I use works fine whether or not I use my credentials for the CAS test user credentials.  I have verified that I can log onto OWA externally using the test CAS user.

     

    [PS] C:\Windows\System32>Test-OwaConnectivity -clientaccessserver CAS1 -TestType external -TrustAnySSLCertificate

    These are run using my credentials but if I reset the CAS test user password and run them with the CAS user credentials I get successful results as well.  I have recreated the test CAS user several times but always end up with this error.
