Configure your target URL for OWA redirect when migrating users to the cloud


 

When you migrate  a user to Office 365  you want OWA users to have a simple redirect to office 365 and not get this error:

Also you want to give your users an easy OWA url not http://outlook.com/owa/mysupercooldomain.com

The solution is 2 steps

  1. create a cname record that points to outlook.com ( i.e. OWA.mysupercooldomain.com = outlook.com)
  2. add that record to your organization relationship
    1. set-orginaizationrelationship –targetOwaUrl http://owa.mysupercooldomain.com/owa
  3. Give OWA.mysupercooldomain.com to your users as there new owa page

Note: the domain you create the CNAME in must be one of your federated or accepted domains in office 365 for realm discovery to work.

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else
    encountering problems with your website. It seems
    like some of the text within your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with
    my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Appreciate it
