    Angry Zimbra/Exchange Interop Not Working? INVALID_REQUEST

    I've tried this several different ways to no avail so far. I have an Exchange system as the primary MTA and Zimbra as the secondary MTA hosting the same domain. Email flows back and forth between the two fine.

    On the domain level I have the following settings:

    Microsoft Exchange Server URL: https://childdomain.parent.com
    Microsoft Exchange Authorization Schema: Basic
    Microsoft Exchange User Name: an AD account with Domain and Exchange Admin group memberships
    Microsoft Exchange User Password: password for account
    O and OU used in legacyExchangeDN attribute: /o=/ou= - I retrieved the settings for this by looking up the legacyExchangeDN for the account specified above.

    However when I click the "Check the Settings" button, I get "Invalid Request" Message: invalid request: missing zimbraFreebusyExchangeURL Error code: service.INVALID_REQUEST Method: CheckExchangeAuthRequest Details:soap:Sender

    The URL specified is correct as I can log in using that URL and the username/password as shown above. I've tried several different URLs as I have a few Exchange webmail servers with different variations (with and without /exchange).

    Everything appears to be correct. What am I missing? It's acting like the URL is entered is invalid or its not being passed correctly.

    Can you try via CLI?
    zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeURL http://exchange.domain.com
    or if your doing it on the domain level:
    zmprov md domain.com zimbraFreebusyExchangeURL http://exchange.domain.com

    Exchange 03 or 07?
    ZCS version? http://www.zimbra.com/forums/announc...html#post62754

    That's the second time now that I have found interface areas in the gui admin console to configure something that does not work at all. Manually entering those settings on the global or domain level would never allow the Check the Settings button to pass. However, prior to your response, I found the same commands for configuring Interop via the CLI here.

    Code:
    # zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeAuthUsername zimbra
    # zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeAuthPassword changeme
    # zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeAuthScheme basic
    # zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeURL http://exchange.mycompany.com
    # zmprov mcf zimbraFreebusyExchangeUserOrg "/o=First Organization/ou=First Administrative Group"
    I executed these commands using the same information I was trying to enter in the GUI, went back into the GUI, it looked exactly the same as it did before but this time the Check the Settings button passed. So what is the commands doing that the GUI interface is not doing? Definitely a bug.

    See you're on 5.0.12_GA_2789.RHEL5_64 - could you file that in bugzilla?

    Wonder if it's a save before check hickup.

    Also be aware of the aliases bug in your version: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/announc...-0-12-bug.html

    Even if I Save it in the gui interface and then go back to the tab, the Check the Settings button fails. So it saves it to the configuration but its not saving something correctly, something the CLI interface does write correctly.
