We have already demonstrated how to configure RPC over HTTPS when Exchange Server and Domain Controller are running on separate machines.
In the following Step-by-Step Screencast, we will demonstrate another popular scenario - Exchange Server, running on a Domain Controller.
It is very important to note, that the Domain Controller on which Exchange Server is running, should be a Global Catalog.
We will list again the prerequisites for this Scenario :
- Exchange Server 2003 with SP1 or higher
- The Domain Controller on which Exchange is running should be a Global Catalog Server
- Outlook 2003/2007 running on Windows XP with SP2 or higher, or Windows Vista
To keep things simple, we will dedicate a separate Screencast, covering the different client configuration scenarios – Windows XP, Windows Vista, Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007, clients located outside (at a remote location), clients located on the local network (configuring Split DNS), and last but not less important – using self-issued SSL certificate with RPC over HTTPS.
After we configure the Domain Controller/Global catalog and the Exchange Server 2003, we will demonstrate how to configure and test RPC over HTTPS connection on a client at a remote location, running Windows XP, SP3 and Outlook 2007.
