Suppress "Failed to discover Exchange Server." error?

I have a RealPresence 8500 on UC Software Version 5.7.2.3123.

I have a Skype only account in O365 that I want to use on the phone for phone calls. 
Sign in and phone calls works fine, however, there is a message that keeps popping up upon boot up and in the Settings > Status > Diagnostics > Warnings that states "Failed to discover Exchange Server. Contact your Administrator". 

I already have "Exchange Calendar" disabled under the phone web gui's settings (Settings > Applications > Exchange Applications" so I know that's not causing it...


Any other ideas?

In the referenced post, the user wants the opposite result, which is, having a calendar.

In our case, we do not want any calendar features tied to the phone -- we simply want it to be phone-only. 

The Skype account we are using is licensed for Skype/phone licenses only which inherently have no calendar features to my knowledge?

Hello @BeKindPleaseRewind,

 

a correctly setup O365 account and network should not show any errors.

 

You can disable the Auto Discovery via:

 

feature.EWSAutodiscover.enabled="0"

Other community members can suggest further actions but from my perspective the next step is opening a ticket.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Polycom devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

If the unit is no longer within warranty please be prepared to Pay Per Incident / PPI. This is all outlined in detail here
