Problem With event ID 32054 appearing in event log on Lync 2013 server.
The scenario is as follows:
Lync 2010 upgraded to Lync 2013 CU3 in co-excistence with Exchange 2010 SP2 running on Windows Server 2008 R2.
The event log on the Lync 2013 server is showing repeated event ID 32054. “Sorage Service had an EWS Autodiscovery failure.”
The error message pointing in direction of missconfigured autodiscovery or reverse proxy configuration. Since I’m not a big fan of red messages in the event log, I proceeded to check out the possible causes to this error.
Ran a check of the Exchange web services configuration:
Everything seems OK here.
Also checked for autodiscover.domain.com in internal and external DNS. All good there as well. Even had the SRV records for autodiscovery in place both internally and externally.
Next step was to check all the Lync features to see if anything was not working as it should. Did a complete check of all features both on my internal Lync PC client and from my mobile iOS client. Everything worked like a charm, while at the same time the events kept popping up in the event log saying “this is not right”.
The event ID 32054 can safely be discarded as rubbish as long as everything is working fine. I’ve seen multiple posts regarding the same problem all over, and currently there has been no cure.
If anyone by any chance has a working, documented solution to this “problem”(Microsoft???), please feel free to post a comment with links in this post.
