Sharepoint 2010 Calendar Overlay with Exchange 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm trying to add calendar overlays in Sharepoint 2010 however the OWA URL's don't seem to work. Everytime I use the following url:




I get an 'Unexpected Error'. After checking through the logs, it seems to be an XML exception.

System.Xml.XmlException: '=' is an unexpected token. The expected token is ';'. Line 1, position 520

The URL's that I'm using were taken from Technet, so I can only assume that they're correct. When I put the same URL's in the brow

SharePoint 2010 Foundation - Connecting to Exchange 2010 Calendar's



    I've got a problem when trying to view additional calendars through SharePoint that my Exchange server has. The error states:

Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'myservername.net'. (1b1a6f32-0128-4676-90a1-9501cc6b9805).

I've tried using direct IP addresses instead for the server name with no joy. If i change the calendar path name to use the OWA extensions as (as below) i receive the same error:

Outlook Web Access URL:


Exchange Web Service URL:


I select that the type of calendar is Exchange based and i am using Exchange 2010 SP1. Both servers are running Server 2008 R2 with the latest service pack. I have tried importing root certificates from Exchange to SharePoint server with no joy. Further, i have managed to get SharePoint to send e-mails interfacing directly with Exchange (to specify site group membership etc) so communication is occuring between the two seperate servers.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated.



Configure My Calendar in SharePoint 2003 and Exchange 2007

We have upgraded Exchange to 2007.  I change the URL on the "My Calendar" page to read http://<server>/owa.  It brings back 404 - File or directory not found.  I have even tried http://<server>/owa/?cmd=contents&module=calendar&view=monthly which works from IE.  It tells me invalid characters.  We will not be upgrading to Sharepoint and Exchange 2010 until second half of next year.  What am I doing wrong?

Can you use calendar overlays to show two Exchange 2003 conference room calendars in Sharepoint 2010


I want to use the calendar overlays to show an aggregate view of multiple conference room calendars on a single sharepoint 2010 foundation webpart.  The calendars are resource calendars held on an SBS 2003 server.  Is this possible?  I get a 404 error if I try to navigate to https://myowaserver.contoso.com/EWS/exchange.asmx with IE.  If I try the calendar I get the  following error:

Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'myowaserver.contoso.com'

These are the entries in the overlay calendar:



is SBS 2003 not supported?

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 problems with Office 2007 ActiveX controls

I have a SPF server that I recently upgraded from WSS 3 using the database attach method. The new server configuration is SQL 2008 R2 with SPF 2010 on Windows 2008 64bit SP2. Mostly things are working fairly well, though there have been a few fires to put out. The latest inflamation seems to be centered around ActiveX controls for Office 2007. I'm getting the following message whenever I try to create a new document using the New button: " 'New Document' requires a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application and web browser. To add a document to this document library, click the 'Upload Document' button." On the client side, the browser is IE8 on Windows 7 (Windows is 64bit, though the browser is in 32 bit mode.) using Office 2007. I've also had the same problem with systems running XP. In terms of troubleshooting, other activeX related features seem to be working fine. I can open datasheet views, if I click on a document, it will open in the appropriate client. However, I have some libraries where the Word document template opens the document information panel and those will give thhe following message on open: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on thi page , or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the contols. As a result the page mi
