RPC over HTTP connection to directory problem.

I'm pretty far along in that I can do the outlook /rpcdiag and get connected to my mail server via HTTPS but the directory access to my global catalog servers are still TCP/IP.
I have a primary and secondary domain controller (2003), and an exchange server 2003 which is not a catalog server. (is this a problem?)
I went through the Microsoft instructions for a single server on my exchange server, but because it is not a catalog server, it doesn't have the registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS
I added the entries to DC01 and DC02 as specified - NSPI interface protocol sequences  ncacn_http:6004

I tried installing RPC over HTTP on the domain controllers also, but didnt fix anything.
I'm testing on the local lan, and not through any firewall.
Thanks,

Also, OWA works fine via HTTPS. certificate is installed on exchange server, and seems valid. DC01 and 02 have no certs.

You have added entries for both domain controllers?
Don't think that is right. Try removing one so there is only one there.

Don't need Exchagne to be installed on a GC - infact any kind of DC.
You also don't need the RPC Proxy service on any other machine.

Both domain controllers are catalog servers and have the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS
the exchange server does not have this key (I assume because it is not a catalog server)
I have added the NSPI interface protocol sequences value to this registry key on both catalog servers.

How are you configuring RPC/HTTP? Are you using the GUI in ESM (Exchange 2003 SP1) or doing it by hand using registry modifications?

I did the registry entries manually, following microsoft kb833401. (just went through it again to verify the entries)
I didn't do anything in ESM,
I did the IIS virtual directory configuration per the same article.

I have another list of registry entries from when I was setting up RPC over HTTP before SP1.
I have posted them here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http-server.asp
You may want to compare yours with mine. I read everything I could when setting up my first server and these were the entries that I found worked for me.
