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.

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


I have this problem too.
