Autodiscover Points to defunct Exchange 2010 Server

Here is the focus and error in the End-to-End Scenario taken from the autodiscover.xml

<MdbDN>/o=toussaintonline/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=KOBAYASHI /cn=Microsoft Private MDB</MdbDN>

Where cn=KOBAYASHI it should read cn=KOJUN

KOBAYASHI is a defunct server that I cleaned out of Ad ADSIEDIT but obviously its still existing in AD somewhere. I deleted and rebuilt the autodiscovery directory on the new Exchange 2010 server but it still repopulates with the dead server in autodiscover. Outlook 2010 clients are using the wrong server to try to connect to exchange and fails.

OWA works fine and so does autodiscover from outside the ORG. Can anybody help on this one? I've spent hours searching and I'm banging my head against the desk.

Thanks,

Mike

You could try an ldap search against the configuration partition to see if that legacy DN value exists somewhere. Here's an example using adfind.exe from www.joeware.net:

adfind -config -f " (legacyexchangedn=/o=toussaintonline/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=KOBAYASHI /cn=Microsoft Private MDB)" 1.1

Used all tools to check and I cannot find the old server anywhere in AD but it is still appearing in the autodiscover.xml. 3rd day trying to find this. *SIGH*

Dear,

Did you check the SCP in the AD configuration partition. Check the following location and verify the attribute :

DC=<domain>, CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=<Organization>, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=Exchange Administrative Group, CN=Servers, CN=<CAS Name>, CN=Protocols, CN=Autodiscover, CN=<CAS Name>

BTW, I would like to know the user which was reported to use the defunct server in autodiscover. Are they using MAPI to connect the server or using OWA? OUTLOOK Anywhere?

Did you check the address in the certification of the client?

I've checked every suggestion here and no go.

ALL users in the domain autodiscover KOBAYASHI.domain.net as the Exchange Server even though its no longer there. The email server has been changed and renamed to KOJUN.domain.net. The other weird thing is that it resolves and finds the right users on the KOBAYASHI defunct server even though it no longer exists. However, since it does not exists Outlook gets an error and no email can be synced.

I've used ADFIND and the name KOBAYASHI simply doesn't exist in AD, but it must since Outlook Autodiscover keeps using it. TO make matters worse Outlook Autodiscover doesn't allow me to override the d@mned wrong EMAIL server. I wouldn't even care if Outlook would just let me put it in manually, but it keeps changing the thing.

Anyhoo...

Merry Christmas all
