How to Enable Forms-Based Authentication

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-06-02

To enable the Outlook Web Access logon page, you must enable forms-based authentication on the server.

If you are using forms-based authentication with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) offloading, you must configure your Exchange Server front-end servers to handle this scenario.

For detailed steps, see "How to Enable Forms-Based Authentication When Using SSL Offloading" in the Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server Front-End and Back-End Server Topology Guide.

  1. On the Exchange server, log on with the Exchange administrator account, and then start Exchange System Manager.

  2. In the console tree, expand Servers.

  3. Expand the server for which you want to enable forms-based authentication, and then expand Protocols.

  4. Expand HTTP, right-click Exchange Virtual Server, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Exchange Virtual Server Properties dialog box, on the Settings tab, in the Outlook Web Access pane, select the Enable Forms Based Authentication option.

  6. Click Apply, and then click OK.
