I recently ran into an issue where the Test-OutlookWebServices cmdlet failed with the following message:
Id : 1013 Type : Error Message : When contacting https://mail.company-name.org/Rpc received the error The remote name could not be resolved: 'mail.company-name.org' Id : 1017 Type : Error Message : [EXPR]-Error when contacting the RPC/HTTP service at https://mail.company-name.org/Rpc. The elapsed time was 109 milliseconds.
After a shameful hour of searching for the answer, I thought: What if I disable and re-enable the Outlook Anywhere service?
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Disable-OutlookAnywhere -Server EXCHANGESRV Confirm Are you sure you want to perform this action? Disabling Outlook Anywhere "EXCHANGESRV\Rpc (Default Web Site)". [Y] Yes [A] Yes to All [N] No [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help (default is "Y"):Y [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Enable-OutlookAnywhere -Server EXCHANGESRV -SSLOffloading $false -ExternalHostname mail.company.org -ClientAuthenticationMethod Basic
After running an IISRESET I’m able to run my Test-OutlookWebServices cmdlet without error.
