Unable to activate anonymous authentication on OWA virtual folder... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I try to allow owa login thru ADFS on Exchange 2010 SP1 Rollup 3 v3 (on Windows 2008 R2). To achieve this I folowed this guide : http://download.microsoft.com/documents/France/Interop/2011/Exposing_OWA2010_ADFS20_Other_Organizations.docx

    But enabling anonymous authentication on OWA virtual folder throw this error :

    There's an error in your Outlook Web App configuration.

    The authentication type on the /owa virtual directory is set to Anonymous. This check box must be cleared for Outlook Web App to function correctly.

    Is it possible to disable this check ? Is there a workarround ?

  • Hi,

    Try to disable the form based authentication, and then you will be able to enable the "anonymous authentication".

  • Hi,

    Sorry Gen, I haven't seen your answer in time.

    The form authentication is disabled, and anonymous authentication is the only one enabled as you can see bellow

    The problem is that OWA application doesn't start throw the error described in my first post.
