I have a two node, active/passive exchange 2003 enterprise cluster setup. The cluster is not used for anything else. The cluster acts as a standalone server (i.e. no front-end/back-end setup).
Each server is running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise with all the updates applied.
The first node works perfectly. The problem is with the second node, which is setup is in exactly the same way.
I have SSL enabled on OWA (and the entire IIS site). When the node fails over the HTTP service either stops immediately with no event log information, or starts the non-SSL websites and the SSL sites are in the "Stopped" state.
All other Exchange services are fine - and I can access email via Outlook Exchange Mode, IMAP, POP and send mail via SMTP.
The SSL certificate is a wildcard SSL certificate (*.mydomain.com) whose request was generated on the first node (i.e. the node that works all the time). The virtual server is running on mail.mydomain.com behind a firewall.
Everything works on node 1 - but not node 2.
