Exchange 2010 - 2007 Outlook Anywhere Windows XP not working together

 Problem with our Outlook Anywhere on a Windows XP SP machine with Office 2010. I've enabled Outlook Anywhere on our Exchange servers and it works great on a Domain joined Windows 7 machine with Office 2010. But I've now installed Office 2010 on a Domain Joined Windows XP SP3 machine, but it doesn't seem to work. It tells me that Outlook is not able to connect to the Exchange servers.


When I use the http://testexchangeconnectivity.com site to test the Outlook Anywhere connectivity all goes well (on the same Windows XP machine). There isn't any problem to connect.

The solution is:
The problem actually was in my SAN certificate, mainly on the Subject Alternative Names field. Go Daddy did put on that field as 1st line not mail.domainname.ee put domainname.com. So Exchange was presenting itself to XP machines wrongly and it seems that XP is not willing to look at next lines on a SAN certificate. Windows 7 thou does it, therefore that problem never happened on Windows 7. So after I used that command:

HTML Code:
Set-OutlookProvider EXPR -CertPrincipalName:"msstd:mail.EgyEng.com"

Everything worked!

Recreating a missing VMFS datastore partition in VMware vSphere 5.x and 6.x

    Symptoms A datastore has become inaccessible. A VMFS partition table is missing.   Purpose The partition table is required only during a rescan. This means that the datastore may become inaccessible on a host during a rescan if the VMFS partition was deleted after the last rescan. The partition table is physically located on the LUN, so all vSphere hosts that have access to this LUN can see the change has taken place. However, only the hosts that do a rescan will be affected.   This article provides information on: Determining whether this is the same problem Resolving the problem   Cause This issue occurs because the VMFS partition can be deleted by deleting the datastore from the vSphere Client. This is prevented by the software, if the datastore is in use. It can also happen if a physical server has access to the LUN on the SAN and does an install, for example.   Resolution To resolve this issue: Run the  partedUtil  command on the host with the issues and verify if your output
