Exchange Server 2010 default domain set for outlook web access

We wanted to set the default domain for users logging into outlook web access on Exchange server 2010. By doing this, users would not have to enter the domain\username and would be free to enter just the user name. This is much easier for the typical user of email servers, who lets face it have trouble enough remembering their own name!

To do this we performed the following steps.

Go to Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\Owa\14.0.639.21\scripts\premium

Browse to the 14.0.682.1 folder instead of you have the latest rollup.

Open the flogon.js file in notepad

ctrl + f and find the text clkLgn(){addPerfMarker

after the “clkLgn(){” and before the “addPerfMarker” paste the following. Remember to change DOMAINNAME with your own domain name with no slashes.

NOTE: BE SURE THAT YOU PASTE TO NOTEPAD TO VERIFY ” CHARACTERS ARE CORRECT AND ARE NOT 6699’s BUT ARE CORRECT BLOCKQUOTES.

var myDomain=”DOMAINNAME” + “\\”;if(gbid(“username”).value.indexOf(myDomain)==-1){gbid(“username”).value=myDomain+gbid(“username”).value;}

your end result should resemble something like this

clkLgn{var myDomain=”mysampledomainname” + “\\”;if(gbid(“username”).value.indexOf(myDomain)==-1){gbid(“username”).value=myDomain+gbid(“username”).value;}
addPerfMarker

That was it.

Now when a user types their name and pass, the form will automatically log them in using the default domain.

Exchange Server 2010 Organization Prerequisites Forest Functional Level 2003

Today I was installing exchange server 2010 and found that the organisation pre-requisites failed with the following message.

Organization Prerequisites

Failed

Error:

The forest functional level of the current Active Directory forest is not Windows Server 2003 native or later. To install Exchange Server 2010, the forest functional level must be at least Windows Server 2003 native.

Now I went in a look at the domain functionality level and found that the domain was already set to Windows server 2003, but what I never realised previously was that the forest functionality level is set separately. Instead of right clicking on the domain and selecting raise functionality level you click on the active directory domains and trusts and select raise functionality level in there.

Once this was completed the installation of the exchange server 2010 was able to proceed without the phone message. Just a little tip for exchange server 2010 installation.
