Federation Information Could not be received from the External Organization –Exchange 2013

After Creating a federation Trust on Testcareexchange.biz  . Its throwing up a error “Federation Information Could not be received from the External Organization”

Verify 5 Things –

1 .Verify WSSecurityAuthentication is set to True

2 . Verify MRSPRoxy is enabled (Am not 100 % sure this step fixed the solution )

3. Verify 443 Port is accessible

4.  Verify this URL is accessible from your domain

https://autodiscover.testcareexchange.biz/autodiscover/autodiscover.svc/WSSecurity

5. If this command fails(Get-FederationInformation -DomainName testcareexchange.biz) on your internal servers and works on external servers ,verify “autodiscover.testcareexchange.biz” is pinging

==

Running with Verbose gives a detailed Error on where it fails

Get-FederationInformation -DomainName testcareexchange.biz –verbose

==

Step1 –

To Check

Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory | Fl *wssecurity*

To Set to True – e.g.Servername\Autodiscover (Default Web Site)

Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory “EXCH2013\Autodiscover (Default Web Site)” –WSSecurityAuthentication:$true

Step2 –

To Check

Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory | fl *mrs*

To Set to True – e.g.Servername\EWS (Default Web Site)

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory “EXCH2013\EWS (Default Web Site)” -MRSProxyEnabled:$true

Step3 –

Telnet works on 443

Step4 –

Use a browser from external works , make sure it opens a credential prompt.

  1. Hi,

    The last test doesn’t open a credential prompt, could that be a reason for the failure of get-federationinformation ?

    Thanks in advance,
