Error setting Out of Office via Outlook during Exchange 2010/2013 Coexistence

Recently we implemented Exchange 2013. During the CoExistence period we experienced an issue with external users (accessing via Internet) not being able to set their OoO rule. This only seemed to affect those users whos mailbox still resided on the old 2010 Exchange server.

Under 2012 the permissions for computer objects have changed slightly. When a DAG is configured it creates a Cluster Named Object (CNO) which is basically just a computer account for the DAG. If you are running Exchange 2013 on a 2012 server though the wizard is unable to create this object correctly because of the new permissions and instead you need to pre-setup the CNO in active directory so that the DAG can add the servers you assign.   Pre-stage CNO (Cluster Named Object) Open Active Directory Users and Computers. Expand the forest node. Right-click the organizational unit (OU) in which you want to create the new account, select New , and then select Computer . In N
What's it all about? Working as an IT administrator I regularly have to solve problems I have never come up against before. Google helps me to piece things together and so I wanted to document the work I have done to act as both a reminder to myself if I need to do it again and a help to others that may need to do the same things I have done. I hope it helps.....
