I am running SBS 2003 SP1 with Exchange 2003 SP2.

I have been struggling with the above error that appears in the application logs.

Description:
When I open a web browser and go to https://localhost/oma and log in as the domain administrator. I receive the following error:

A System error has occurred while processing your request. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact your administrator.

The entry in the event log is:
An unknown error occurred while processing the current request:

I have tried to re-register IIS with 1.1 .net to no avail.

My Exchange OMA VD directory security only has basic authentication and Windows Integrated authentication checked and only the localhost  and IP address have access.

I have recreated the SSL cert by re-running the CEICW multiple times and run iisreset multiple times.  Neither has helped.

Can anyone help here?

Thanks!!

The link you found was me asking a MSFT engineer the same question.  So far we have not come to a resolution and the issue was not solved in the thread you found.

Has anyone else run into this problem and know of a resolution?

Thanks!

The server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource. Does this error occur at any access link? Or is it just from one computer?...Booda2us

Thanks for your comments.

This issue occurs from any workstation including the console on the server.  What's also interesting is that OWA, Companyweb (Sharepoint services) and all other IIS web sites are functioning perfectly.

This may have ocurred since I upgraded to Exchange SP2, but I can't pinpoint that as the issue yet.

Thanks.

Have you  tried a system restore back to before problem started? Check event logs for time of 1st event, and take system to a restore point prior to that...Booda2us

In order to be sucessful in a system restore I would need to have had the same Exchange version.  I upgraded my Exchange to SP2 since the problem started.  This may indeed be an issue with Exchange SP2 so I would like to see if I can resolve the issue using Exchange SP2.
