OOF Still Not working, Client Access\Public folder is empty in IIS.

Not open for further replies.


I have tried about everything I could find on the net. I get the "Your Out of Office setting cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable, Try again later." I have tried the set-publicfolders, I do have the cn=public folders when I go to ADSI edit. I have autodiscover.mydomain.com as dns and in my certificate. I have checked to see if the certificate works and it does. I have diconnected the store renamed it and reconnected, and then disconnected and renamed the old one back to the correct name and mounted again.
When I browse to the public folder in IIS there is nothing there. When I go into Public Folder Managemen Console the Public folder SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY. It says on all the items on the front page "Not avaliable on this server".

I am at the end of my rope here. Can anyone help?


What is the version of Exchange and what is the version of the client?


Exchange 2007 - Version: 08.02.0254.000

Outlook 2007

Server 2008


So can you see the setting in OWA? OOF uses Exchange Web Services (it does not use Public folders).

Can you do the following for me and post the results?

1) Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory | fl

2) Crtl-rightclick the outlook icon in your system tray, select Test Email AutoConfiguration, uncheck the two Guessmart box and post the results.

3) Do you have redirection set on the Default Web Site? If so, can you double check the redirection settings on the EWS virtual directory?

And no redirects on the EWS virtual direcorty.


So is : myserver.enterprise.local (your internal URL) in your certificate?

If you are connected via Outlook Anywhere does it work? What about outside of your network? Is free/busy not working either? Do you have split DNS in place? What if you changed the internalURL to https://mail.ourdomain.com?


Yes we can use it in OWA with no problem. And we can use it on owa outside our network also. We can use the https://[url="https://mail.ourdomain.com</a"]mail.ourdomain.com[/url] from inside the network. I am having a user try from outside the network to see if they can get into it. Yes, myserver.enterprise.local is on the certificate, along with autodiscover.ourdomain.com.

The user can not use out of office assistant from outside the network. It works fine in OWA, inside and outside the network. And the free and busy seems to be working fine.


What do you think? Now I have issues downloading the address book. I dont know what is going on with exchange.
