Hello,
We are going to be upgrading our Exchange 2k server to Exchange 2k3 strictly for the RPC over HTTP functionality. I was just wondering if anyone could shed any opinions/experience with this new feature. Is it worth it, is it all its cracked up to be? I will also have to upgrade my Exchange server to Windows server 2003. This server also runs our website, ftp, etc so its very critical. I am assuming I will also have to upgrade the PDC to windows 2k3. Last but not least is running outlook 2k3 which I am running now and seems to be alright. Any tips, opinions, suggestions are all greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hey Doc,

I have done the 2k to 2k3 upgrade and implemented RPC over HTTPS with the use of a Front-end /Back-end server configuration. Here is my documentation on that, since it doesn't work out of the box, there is some customization and configuration that needs to be done in order to set it up.

with that aside, I love the new RPC over HTTP feature, it has worked miracles and has totally cut down on user's complaining about OWA or using VPN. I must recommend!

Here's the link to my documentation:

I've also implemented RPC over HTTP at one of our client's site and it works fine [Smile]

However you can get RPC over HTTP functionality only in following enviroments:

Server side:
your Exchange servers and global catalog servers must be Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 servers

Client side:
clients must be Windows XP with service pack 1 + RPC fix + Outlook 2003

So the decisions depends much of you client enviroment and weather if you want to provide other services beside Outlook access.

If you for example have several thousand of non-Winxp clients it might be easier and significantly cheaper to configure them with VPN instead of migrating thousands of desktops.
