I hate this…. And most likely you too otherwise you didn’t end up here
When logged on to an Exchange server, ready for starting the Hybrid Configuration Wizard, you try to logon to Exchange Online you end up with a warning (or ‘error’) message:
We can’t sign you in
Like the screenshot below:
Now scroll all the way down (or press page down 12 times ) and enable Active Scripting:
You will get a warning message “Are you sure you want to change the settings for this zone”, click Yes and click OK.
Restart your Internet Explorer browser and you can login on Exchange Online and continue with the Hybrid Configuration Wizard (or whatever you were trying to achieve).
This blogpost is more a note to self, but sigh, I hate it when it does this…. show the 412 Cookies are Disabled error message when trying to open the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) in Exchange Online:

When you see this message your autodiscover configuration is absolutely fine! The reason you see this message is that the autodiscover service expects an HTTP POST command from Outlook, and not an HTTP GET command from Internet Explorer.
So, the service is good but the actual request that’s send to the autodiscover service is not good and therefore autodiscover returns the Error 600 Invalid Request message. So this error is good 🙂
