Heres the setup:
I have an Exchange 2003 server running. The server has 2 network cards, one on the internal domain and one to catch mail from the internet. I recently added am additional HTTP Virtual Server in ESM to handle OWA email and public folders. I added a certificate to this new server and now require access using encryption via SSL. This new Virtual server is bound to the external NIC using port 443. The internal OWA HTTP virtual server (default) is bound to my internal domain NIC and is running on port 80. Ever since i made these changes i can not edit my public folders via ESM.
The operation failed due to an invalid format in the HTTP request. Verify that the host header is correct for the virtual server.
ID no: c1030af0
Exchange System Manager
Things I have Tried:
1. When i ping the server i get the IP of the external NIC. The one that only uses SSL. I thought this could be a problem so i added an entry in the host file. I was then able to ping the server by name and got the proper internal address. However this did not correct my ESM problem.
2. When i disable the external NIC it allows me to access the public folders in ESM.
If anyone has any input please let me know. I have looked at other articles in EE however none have solved my problem hence this question.
