I have a problem regarding Outlook Mobile Access. We have recently (within
the past 6 months), upgraded from SBS 2000 to Windows 2003 Standard
w/Exchange 2003. The OMA options are not showing up in AD Users and
Computers. Our update was performed as follows:
-We installed Windows 2003 Standard on a new server and promoted
it to DC.
We replicated the user accounts from the old SBS box.
-A second Windows 2003 Standard server was built, then promoted to DC as
well. This box was built for Exchange Server.
-Exchange 2003 was installed and exisiting SBS Exchange user accounts were
migrated into the new platform. The old SBS box was then demoted to a member
-We have not installed SP1 on either the Windows 2003 server or Exchange
2003 as of yet. We will perform this function when we have sufficient
downtime available to us.
-We are running Blackberry Enterprise server as a mail forwarder to those
devices (loaded on Exchange Server).
-We enabled and are successfully running Outllook Web Access.
I have a test box I am using to determine what the
problem might be. I have
loaded Windows 2003 Server, and Exchange 2003 Trial over it. I have not
installed either SP1 for Windows or Exchange as I want it to mirror our
current environment and the OMA shows up as expected.
I have yet to find any resolution to my problem from
Google, MS KB or TechNet.
My questions are as follows:
1) Is Blackberry server causing this problem? I could not find anything in
your MS databases regarding compatibility issues with BB server causing this
2) Can the OMA options be enabled in AD without having to reinstall
Exchange? They are available in Exhange System Manager, just not in the user
profiles for AD.
Any help, suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
