Exchange + SBS 2003 Std - OWA not working using SSL

Hi. Bit of a strange one that I really appreciate some help with.

Out of the blue, OWA over SSL stopped working. Error is the usual IE page can not be found - no IIS related hints to point me in the right direction.

I've now got it working using HTTP, but I don't want this to be long term and need to get a fix so that we can start using HTTPS.

Cert's are self signed and appear to be OK. Default Web has been stopped, started and checked without any success.

Hardware Firewall has been fully checked and 443 is pointing to the SBS.

Thanks in advance.

Derek

Hi!

Can you access your server's 443 port from local network or server itself?

Do you host the DNS record for the server or is it outside? Worth checking that's not been deleted/changed

Hi - Thanks for the fast response.

Couldn't access the server's 443 from the LAN or the server itself and the DNS record for the server is hosted externally. As far as I'm aware, no changes have taken place.

Cheers

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Go to command prompt and run the following command:
netstat -an

Does port 443 appear and is it listed as Listening?

Lawrie GormleyAuthor Commented:
Port 443 does appear as listening with a local and foreign address of 0.0.0.0

Have a look at the screen shot. Server's local IP address is 10.10.0.5 and there are three instances of the 443 state being "TIME_WAIT"

Can you try the IP address instead of the name?

Also did you try FBA? Enable it or disable it and try it

Tried the IP address - no change - looking at FBA right now.

Got it fixed - turned out to be a corrupt SSL self signed cert. Put in a new one and off it went.

Thanks to you all for help.
