SSL Error in Exchange System Manager (ID no: c103b404)

I am receiving an SSL error when trying to view Public Folders in the Exchange System Manager, the error ID number is c103b404.  My servers name is MUNKA and the DNS suffex is RWJD.local but my domain name used for OWA is https://munka.rwjd.net/Exchange (check it, it works).  The SSL certificate is generated just fine and it works great.  I've already read over http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324345 but that doesn't help me any because the FQDN is MUNKA.RWJD.local but the SSL certificate is for a "real" domain munka.rwjd.net; how can I get this to work properly?

I have already reviewed several other of the same questions about this issue but all of the answers are pointing at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324345 which does not resolve the problem.

Please help me.  I am making this worth 500 points since it seems to be quite a difficult issue that nobody has resolved yet.

Have you got require SSL enabled on the /public virtual folder in IIS Manager?
If so, remove it.

Ok, that worked perfectly.

Do I need the SSL to be on for any reason?

Don't confuse the setting to require SSL and being able to use SSL. You don't need to have require SSL on to use SSL.
If you don't want to send usernames and password across in the clear when users access public folders through OWA, then you would use an SSL secured site. If you want to ensure that they can't use http, then simply block port 80 on the firewall. As long as port 80 access is available inside then everything will work correctly.

ESM uses the OWA interface for public folders when managing it - which is why you changed the setting in IIS Manager.

mstumpo - this is an old question. Unlike a forum it is not possible to "bump" questions back up the list. The only people who will see your post are those that have already participated. Instead you should post your question as a new question in the Exchange Server Zone which will allow other experts the chance to see the question and respond.

For me, the above solution was not sufficient, but when I implemented this: http://www.isi.cc/jmcalister/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=43 it worked.
