Exchange 2003 Exchange ActiveSync And OMA Errors Occur When SSL Or Forms Based Authentication

AIS Monitoring Platform has discovered failures for Exchange ActiveSync and OMA when form bases authenticaiton is enabled on Exchange 2003 Server. Exchange Server ActiveSync and Exchange Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) use the Exchange virtual directory to access OWA templates and DAV on Exchange back-end servers on which the user’s mailbox is located. Server ActiveSync and OMA cannot access this virtual directory if either of the following conditions is true: 1. The Exchange virtual directory on an Exchange back-end server is configured to require SSL. 2. Forms-based authentication is enabled. This issue does not occur when you enable these settings on the /Exchange virtual directory on a front-end server.
