SharePoint Calendar gives that error below when using SharePoint Exchange Calendar overlay.

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Ntlm'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,Basic realm="exchange.domain.com"'

We couldn't find any solution for this problem. Does anyone have any idea about the problem?

Please make sure to add the Root certificate in you SP Farm. Here are the steps to do it:

1) Go to "Central Administration" and click on "Security"

2) Under "General Security" click on "Manage trust"

3) Create a name (e.g. TestExchange)

4) Root certificate for the trust relationship:

5) Click OK

  • Could you please check if Exchange OWA can be set up to use Basic or NTLM authentication. I would guess that SP is expecting NTLM, and Exchange is set to use Basic. Jan 23, 2012 at 16:18
