OWA Web Resource Profil - Redirect URL

Hello,

one of our customer wants to access OWA 2007 over our SA.

Genrelly this works fine. Resource URL is called https://exchange-server.domain/owa


But the customer has some links in his OWA configuration which are self-made. These links

are connecting to the same Exchange server, but not with the fullqualified name.

The URL ist only https://exchange-server/calender/...

Because of this, the SA is not able to resolve DNS (full qualified names are needed)

Is it possible on SA to redirect this URL to a full qualified URL?

Re: OWA Web Resource Profil - Redirect URL

No the SA itself cant do redirects for URL's. The SA will only forward any redirect from back-end to end user.

 

BTW you can have multiple DNS suffix defined on the SA. When there are multiple DNS suffix on the SA. the SA will append each one to the shortname and try to resolve the name (it will use the first successful answer)

Re: OWA Web Resource Profil - Redirect URL

When you access a URL using short name the SA appends the dns suffix configured on the SA (under Network > Overview > DNS Domains field) and then tries to resolve the host name.

 

1. So you can either update the dns server to resolve the fqdn that will get created as a result of above logic

(OR)

2. You should be able to get around this by creating a host entry on the SA (Admin GUI > Network > Hosts) mapping the shortname to the IP. This will stop any dns lookups for the shortname

Is there no way to make a redirect to this URL?

Unfortunately our SA has a different DNS suffix than the OWA server.

And static host mappings are not really comfortable.

Re: OWA Web Resource Profil - Redirect URL

great, I never have realized that I can define multiple DNS Domains.

Everything works fine now.

Thanks very much!
