Exchange 2010 health-checks with encryption and ntlm auth

Unanswered Question
Jun 25th, 2012

Hi everybody,

I will be forced to implement extended health-ckecks for Exchange 2010 CAS Servers. So the cisco design guide does not help

Exchange2010 CAS Service needs ntlm auth for many services by default. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb331973.aspx

Now with SP1 also for pop3 and imap4. I have not found any option to use ntlm by default.

The next problem is encryption.

Health-checks with encryption are not integrated in cisco ace 4710 by default.

As an alternative to try a scripted health-check with tcl script is an option but needs more investigation and is timeconsuming.

I watched for other vendors solution, they use e.g. external imported shell scripts with curl (curl -s --ntlm -k -X POST ...) to do a health-check with ntlm. That would be fine at the moment to beat the requirement of extendet health-checks.

But maybe it is only ntlm verion 1, I do not know what happens if it comes to ntlm version 2.

Kerberos authentication is a much bigger problem, but at the moment not a requirement.

Does anybody has some hints or also a tcl script for exchange health-checks ?

Best Regards

Alois

I have this problem too.
