When you access a mailbox by using Outlook Web Access (OWA) through a proxy server that is in a separate domain from your Exchange Server computer, one of the following error messages may be displayed:
- or -
- or -
This problem may be caused by one or both of the following conditions:
- The minimum one-way trust required between the two domains does not exist. (The domain of the proxy server must trust the users in the domain of the Exchange Server computer.)
- A group of users from the domain of the Exchange Server computer has not been given rights on the proxy server to access the computer from the network or to log on locally.
Create a trust relationship if one does not already exist. You must configure the domain of the proxy server as the trusting domain and the domain of the Exchange Server computer as the trusted domain.
For more information about how to set up trust relationships, please refer to the Windows NT administrator documentation.
After you create a trust relationship, grant a group of users from the domain of the Exchange Server computer rights on the proxy server to access the computer from the network and to log on locally. To do this, perform the following steps:
- Create a global group in the domain of the Exchange Server computer, and then add all of the OWA users to the global group.
- Create a local group in the domain of the proxy server, on the proxy server.
- Add the global group from the domain of the Exchange Server computer to the local group in the domain of the proxy server.
- On the proxy server, assign the new local group rights to access the computer from the network and rights to log on locally.
Microsoft Proxy Server version 2.0 implements the Web Proxy service by using an Internet Server API (ISAPI) filter that loads under the context of the default Web site on the proxy server. Because of this, the same considerations that apply to security configuration on an Outlook Web Access server also apply to the security configuration on the proxy server.
