We have an on-premise CRM install which, for the most part, works as intended. (Dynamics CRM 2015, Office 2013)
After Windows update and restarting, ALL Outlook clients can no longer log into CRM. CRM from IE works as intended. The time on all of the servers is matched and correct. The services are running.
The last time this happened it seemed to fix itself right in the middle of an MS support call as it's baffling me as to why this happens. Only after a restart and not on every occasion.
Question: is there an order to the Services? Something else that I need to restart or check? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
As long as all of the services are running and you can login via IE the authentication looks ok. Have you got any client side application filter i.e. firewall that could block it? Have you tried running fiddler to see the I/O requests to see where it is failing? Anything in the server event log for authentication errors?
Thank you for the reply. I've installed fiddler, decrypted https but there's a wealth of info on there and I'm not 100% sure of what I should be looking for.
Here's an expanded view of the returned error. Just installed CRM from fresh on my local machine
ok, so the 503 service unavailable points to something blocking your access which is strange considering that you can access through IE. If you remove you configuration and set it up again does it connect ok? Do you have a proxy server that may be blocking access?
I see there is an sts entry, are you using CRM online and ADFS to authenticate?

Do you have a proxy server that may be blocking access?
It was a fresh install onto a new box just in case. The other install was a pre-configured Terminal machine. No proxy between anything as this is inside the network. On-premises install. This has happened before but rectified itself magically. I turned off the firewall on the CRM box for a few moments with no change.
Yes to ADFS
After the initial restart I MANUALLY started a few services that are usually delayed... Another restart, left it alone, all works.
Thank you very much, Ian, for your assistance!
