OWA 2013 Last Username RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've just install Exchange 2013 into our 2010 Domain, so far so good.

    When a user signes into OWA, and sing back out, it remembers their username when they come to log back in.
    How can I get it to always prompt them to enter a username in the box, and not show the last user who logged in?

  • I think this is just autocomplete in IE.

  • Our 2010 server never did this, only if you ticked this is a private computer. 2013 doesn't seem to have this option,

  • In Exchange 2013, OWA defaults to Private Computer and no Public option is visible. This can be changed by running the command below in EMC:

    Set-OwaVirtualDirectory "ex1\owa*" -LogonPagePublicPrivateSelectionEnabled $True

    Then perform an IISReset.

  • Hi Martin,

    Please understand  Exchange 2013 OWA log on page assumes users are using a private computer, and it leads to that there is a default timeout of 8 hours. In other words, user’s account remains on the log on page for 8 hours.

    The LogonPagePublicPrivateSelectionEnabled parameter in the Set-OWAVirtualDirectory cmdlet specifies whether the OWA sign-in page includes this private/public computer sign-in option. While by default this parameter is set to True in Exchange 2010, in 2013 it is set to False.
