i have spent the last few days trialling this on ubuntu server and fedora core and i am quite impressed

ok so its a pain to recompile a kernel and ensure all the modules are loaded but not impossible…

http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/compiling-linux-kernel-26.html

this website provided great tips on compiling a kernel and is the general process you would use no matter what the distribution

i know this has been around a while but i am only getting to it now 🙂

i am going to try and post some details on how to rebuild the kernels but i used some websites to get this working so i am going to locate the links and pull the information together instead

have a look at this . i used this and the procedure works very well

i came across this scenario the other day where i needed to have a unified namespace for OWA logon so that any user in the world independent of local exchange server can log on to a single url and get re-directed to the local mailbox. Exchange 2010 has a couple of features to help this out initially but requires individual OWA sessions per location and it “optimizes” the process. So when you login what happens is if the local exchange server to the published OWA session is not your most local system it will redirect you to the most optimal CAS server for your user account!

However this is not what was required as it requires 2 logons…

Roll-on the MS approach and here is a link to it

http://www.ucblogs.net/blogs/exchange/archive/2009/06/03/How-to-additional-text-to-the-Exchange-2007-OWA-logon-page.aspx

it works for 2010 as well and is an interesting way of doing it… but again it doesnt solve the requirements of the solution

The solution was quite simple in the end

so on the main exchange cas which is publish the single url you want to publish run this from the exchange management shell

Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "Contoso\owa (default Web site)" –RedirectToOptimalOWAServer $false

and

then on each exchange cas in the organization

Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "Contoso\owa (default Web site)" -WindowsAuthentication $true -BasicAuthentication $true

This enables kerberos authentication which is key to getting this to work

finally on every server you make the change on from an administrator command prompt run iisreset /noforce

and Voila! 🙂

 

I downloaded and installed the full version of fedora 12 onto a virtual machine….

it powered up found the legacy nic as prescribed BUT when booting i would get 4 ping replies and then constant timeouts

also i could not ping out from the guest vm at all….

very strange and i hear you say firewall and /or network configuration

well yes indeed i turned off the firewall/disabled ipchains and ip6chains/verified ip configuration

all was ok….

well it turned out to be that i had to virtual CPU allocated against the box (without hyper-v IC’s or kernel 2.6.32 installed)

and it killed the network subsystem!

so lesson learned build a linux machine with 1 vCPU 🙂
