Exhcange 2010 autodiscover virtual directory

Not open for further replies.


Hello all

When i run the command get-autodiscoverVirtualDirectory |fl I see that the values for internalurl and externalurl are blank. When i run get-clientaccessServer |fl The value for AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri = https://autodiscover.mydomain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

In my environment autodiscover is working correctly, but i am wondering If i need to populate the values for internalurl and externalurl for the autodiscover virtual directory? I would like internal clients to connect to the netbiosname.mydomain.com of the various CAS servers for autodiscover. For this do need to change the internal url on the autodiscover virtual directory?

How have you configured your certificates (what names have you included)?

To set these values you can use


Set-ClientAccessServer &ndash;Identity <CAS Server Name> -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri: <Internal URL>

Set-ClientAccessServer -identity server1 -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://nlb.internaldomain/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity " server1\EWS (Default Web Site)" &ndash;InternalUrl https://server1.internaldomain/ews/exchange.asmx

Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity " Server1\oab (Default Web Site)" -InternalUrl https://server1.internaldomain/oab


Set-ClientAccessServer -identity server1 -AutodiscoverServiceExternalUri https://autodiscover.externaldomain/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity " server1\EWS (Default Web Site)" &ndash;ExternalUrl https://exchange.externaldomain/ews/exchange.asmx

Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity " Server2\oab (Default Web Site)" -ExternalUrl https://exchange.externaldomain/oab

Yes, i have included the internal FQDN of the CAS servers on the cert. We are using split DNS, so i will be using the same values for internalurl and externalurlBulls on Parade

You can leave the values of the internal url and externalurl blank. There is no relationship between the url and autodiscoverserviceinternaluri.

To make autodiscover work internally, it uses ServiceBindingInformation attribute to get the url (which stores in the SCP). You can configure it via AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri.

For the external clients, it uses the two predefined URL to connect the Autodiscover. (https://domain.com or https://autodiscover.domain.com)

The internalurl and externalurl of the autodiscover are just used for display for the Administrator.
