While checking the application logs we saw the following error in Event viewer:

Description: Federation or Auth certificate not found: DB50F584B3D9175702573349D29079A3D01CE712. Unable to find the certificate in the local or neighboring sites. Confirm that the certificate is available in your topology and if necessary, reset the certificate on the Federation Trust to a valid certificate using Set-FederationTrust or Set-AuthConfig.  The certificate may take time to propagate to the local or neighboring sites.

Run the  following command to check if the OAuth Certificate is present or not in the exchange server.

(Get-AuthConfig).currentcertificateThumbprint | Get-ExchangeCertificate

 

A special Rpc error occurs on server EXC2016: The certificate with thumbprint DB50F584B3D9175702573349D29079A3D01CE712 was not found. + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-ExchangeCertificate], InvalidOperationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : [Server= EXC2016,RequestId=0db72699-4351-447b-8872-6f2cfc38db38,TimeStamp=9/12/201 6 3:09:29 PM] [FailureCategory=Cmdlet-InvalidOperationException] CC821A5F,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConf igurationTasks.GetExchangeCertificate + PSComputerName        : EXC2016.contoso.com

FIX:

We ran the following command on the Exchange server

New-ExchangeCertificate -server “EXC2016” -PrivateKeyExportable $true

Set-AuthConfig -CertificateThumbprint “New Thumbprint” -Server “EXC2016”

 

We ran IISRESET on the Exchange server.

We tried and were able to access attachment preview.

 

Note:

OAuth certificate is generated at the time of first Exchange server installation in org and same certificate is copied to all subsequent servers.

You have to create the certificate by specifying only one Exchange server, then the certificate is copied to all the Exchange server using Microsoft Exchange Service Host service.
