We have an exchange 2003 cluster environment behind a firewall and would like to configure OWA using SSL to allow OWA access as well as RPC over HTTPS. We have an SSL for the server when this was applied to the default website and the exchange virtual directory when the cluster node failed over to the second node this did not have any SSL changes.
The event entry generated was
Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 (EXCHANGECLUSTER):
Failed to get the protocol IP address and port bindings from the metabase.
Reading on the web Microsoft recommends a front end server on the DMZ and leave the cluster alone. Financially I would not like the outlay for a new server to act as a front end.
Any recommendations would be appreciated
