Exchange 2003 virtual directory settings

Posted on 2007-04-10
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Hi again guys,

I accidently changed the default url for all my exchange 2003 server virtual directory locations by setting a redirection url on the top level default site which filtered down to ALL my exchange sites, so now when I go or etc, I get redirected to something I set elsewhere.  Now my thoughts on trying to figure what the initial setup was to return it to operation again was to install exchange 2003 onto another computer and copy the virtual directory location settings, but I don't have the time.  So can someone who understands my plight help me out with this please?  I promise not to do it again.  ;)
