To use Digest authentication on IIS 7 and later, you must install the service role and then for the EWS web site disable Anonymous authentication and enable Digest authentication. For full details of the installation process refer to http://www.iis.net/configreference/system.webserver/security/authentication/digestauthentication.
•Warning: Interaction with OCS
IP Office integration with Microsoft Exchange for Calendar mining cannot be configured and used if Microsoft Office Communication Server (OCS) and Office Communicator are already deployed. If this is the case, enabling digest authentication can stop the Microsoft OCS from working. There is a continual prompting for authentication in the Office Communicator and an error message is generated.
