Yes, those are gingerbread shaped snowglobe cookies with a Mini Cooper ish (okay so maybe it's the Clubman model) bringing the tree home.
Now I have to go clean up the kitchen where I made a mess.
So you installed IE11 and suddenly OWA keeps wanting to use OWA lite when you access Exchange 2010 or 2013 right?
It's due to timing of updates... these Exchange updates aren't yet on MU or WSUS (and actually the 2013 version won't be on MU or WSUS you have to manually install it)
Released: Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 3 - Exchange Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2891587 which also includes - 2866064 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2866064/ ) Can't load OWA Premium by using Internet Explorer 11 in an Exchange Server environment
So you have an SBS 2008, 2011, Essentials server and you have an ipad/android/surface/or some tablet-ish device and you want to RDP to the desktop without going through RWA?
For another windows machine, in the RDP application, put in the name of the workstation you want to access.
Now click options and in the final tab of the rdp application, in the advanced tab, click on connect from anywhere and where is says use these RDgateway settings put in the url of the server you use to RWA to it (or it's the same as the url for phone activesync setup)
Click to connect and enter in domain\username and then the password. You are now connecting to the 443 port of the server, hitting RDgateway and then accessing the 3389 of the workstation all without opening 3389 on the server.
Yes you need RDS cals to be official but these cals go no where on the server as there's no console to enter them into, so you just put them on the shelf. What's that you say? That makes no sense? Yes I know but we're in small business which is all about not making sense in licensing.
Try it. You'll see it works.
So everyone is aware:
"You should be aware of the following before you deploy Services Integration features:
If you were planning to have two DCS in your Essentials role network, this can't be done at this time. I, along with other partners that have opened support cases are asking this to be changed. There's no eta of when a fix will be done.
So for now, be aware of this limitation.
