An Unexpected Redirect Response was Received
Topic Last Modified: 2009-08-18
The Microsoft Exchange Analyzer Tool sends an HTTP request to the Exchange Server to verify that it can successfully connect to features including Outlook Web Access, Exchange ActiveSync, and Outlook Anywhere. A successful response should appear as an HTTP 200 (or 207). When the Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer receives a redirect response (that is, 301, 302, 302) instead of a 200 or 207, it displays the following error message.
"An unexpected Redirect Response was received."
This error message indicates that you have an HTTP redirect configured in IIS for one or more Exchange applications in a manner that is not expected or supported.
For more information about configuring redirection for Outlook Web Access, see How to Simplify the Outlook Web Access URL.
For more information about configuring redirection for Autodiscover, see White Paper: Exchange 2007 Autodiscover Service.
The Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer is a new tool with limited documentation at this time.
