Exchange Calendar Sharing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    A customer of mine asked me about sharing or publishing calendars on a webdav server and since I have not done this before Im asking you guys for some clarifications.

    We are running Exchange 2013, 2x CAS servers and 3x MBX servers.

    - if setting up the web proxy url, that one should be the same as our owa url correct? like https://mail.company.com/owa (both internally and externally)

    - can one use the front-ends as webdavs server (exchange 2013 is doing webservices nowsays), so if I enable webdav, will that destroy my webservices? shall I go for a separate webdav server(s)?

    -  how often does the clients update these subscription calendars?

    - can one connect to that webdav server like (mail.company.com/calendar) and see a list of those users that have published their calendars?

    Thx!

  • A staff member here was going nuts trying to sync her Exchange 2010 calendar to iPhone using iCloud.  When setting up the exchange server account the settings have afield labeled as server so she entered the server name.  Could not get the phone to verify the account and start he sync process.  She called me and asked me for the server name and the domain name and I provided her with all the permutations: servername, company_domain.local, mycompany.local.net, etc. All to no avail.  When I was looking at the phone and could actually see the field, I saw the greyed out hint "yourcompany.com" and was able to get the phone to verify by giving it remote.mycompany.com.  The account was quickly verified and syncing the calendar with exchange.  So when the field asks for server it, apparently does not mean the actual name of the server but the partial URL format I described as remote.mycompany.com.  You should enter remote.yourcompany.com for the remote URL for your Outlook Web Access.  The URL normally looks like this- https://remote.mycompany.com/owa.

  • I'm not sure that Exchange 2013 is compatible with WebDav. WebDav is listed as a "discontinued" feature:

    (API and Development section)

    My first inclination is the say that Exchange 2013 and WebDav will not play together.
