Autodiscover Service The Autodiscover service couldn't be located error while connecting using EWS 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    Until Exchange 2010 SP1 I was using with success the API 2.0 which I was connecting in Office 365.

    After the upgrade in Exchange 2013 and without changing any of my programming code I 'm starting getting the "The Autodiscover service couldn't be located." error.

    In my code I'm using a loop , to loop through all of my users . In the First three users everything is working fine.

    But after the third or sometimes the fourth or fifth (completely random case) I'm starting getting the error.

    this is the  code I'm using to connect to Offcie 365

     Dim service = New ExchangeService
                    service = GetBinding()

    Public Function GetBinding() As ExchangeService
            ' Create the binding.
            'Me.ExchangeVersion1 = 4
            Dim service As New ExchangeService(Me.ExchangeVersion1)

            ' Define credentials.
            service.Credentials = New WebCredentials(UserName, PassWord)

            If Me.UseTrace Then
                Dim TC As New EWSTrace.TraceListener
                TC.TracePath = Me.TracePath
                service.TraceFlags = TraceFlags.All
                service.TraceEnabled = True
                service.TraceListener = TC

            End If

            ' Use the AutodiscoverUrl method to locate the service endpoint.

            'Code used to work like that.
                service.AutodiscoverUrl(UserName, _
                        New AutodiscoverRedirectionUrlValidationCallback( _
                            AddressOf Exchange2010.RedirectionUrlValidationCallback))
                '   Me.ExchangeVersion1 = 3
            Catch ex As AutodiscoverRemoteException
                Me.ErrorCode = -1
                Throw ex
            End Try

            Return service
        End Function

        ' Create the callback to validate the redirection URL.
        Private Shared Function RedirectionUrlValidationCallback(ByVal redirectionUrl As String) As Boolean
            ' Perform validation.
            Return (redirectionUrl = _
        End Function

    Which the above code is correct . And it is working - worked until the upgrade. The exchange version is correct( Im assigning the properties correct so let's not focus in there).

    An this the stack I'm getting.

    HRersult  = -2146233088
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Autodiscover.AutodiscoverService.InternalGetLegacyUserSettings[TSettings](String emailAddress, List`1 redirectionEmailAddresses, Int32& currentHop)
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Autodiscover.AutodiscoverService.GetLegacyUserSettings[TSettings](String emailAddress)
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Autodiscover.AutodiscoverService.InternalGetLegacyUserSettings(String emailAddress, List`1 requestedSettings)
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Autodiscover.AutodiscoverService.GetUserSettings(String userSmtpAddress, UserSettingName[] userSettingNames)
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService.GetAutodiscoverUrl(String emailAddress, ExchangeVersion requestedServerVersion, AutodiscoverRedirectionUrlValidationCallback validateRedirectionUrlCallback)
       at Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService.AutodiscoverUrl(String emailAddress, AutodiscoverRedirectionUrlValidationCallback validateRedirectionUrlCallback)
       at Exchange2010.Exchange2010.GetBinding() in C:\test\WEBDAV_COM\EXCHANGE_2010\Exchange2010_COM\Exchange\Exchange2010.vb:line 1328
       at Exchange2010.Exchange2010.ConnectWithExchange() in C:\test\WEBDAV_COM\EXCHANGE_2010\Exchange2010_COM\Exchange\Exchange2010.vb:line 715

    Appreciate any help you could give me.

    thank you

  • Never mind , Find out what was going on. Changed to https://outlook.office365.com/ews/exchange.asmx  the url and worked.

    So I believe that something is going on  with the IP addresses they gave me and the link that I will have to make with the Autodiscover Service.
