OWA Redirect Under IIS 7

I have Exchange 2007 SP1 running on Windows Server 2008 and am trying to get http to automatically redirect to https. I have been trying to adapt the TechNet instructions at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998359.aspx for this purpose but am flailing.

Prior to making any changes, I verified that the https address worked. I made the changes, adding a redirect page. Now, when I go to http://outlook.company.com it shows the redirect page and attempts the redirect. However, the actual page https://outlook.company.com/owa fails.Going directly to that https page also fails.

Any thoughts on where I might have messed up?

thanks.

Solved this myself. The "trick" is to enable the redirection on the Default Web Site but disable it on the /owa subidirectory. Now things are working properly. Thanks.

well if going directly to https fails then i would not even bother with the redirect.
are you trying it from internal, or external.

The https only started failing when I set up the redirect. I am not sure which step could have caused that.

Ah, so the problems seems to be with my "HTTP Redirect" page on the Default Web Site. When I check the "Redirect requests to this destination" box and using only /owa, it does not work. When I disable that, it works.It does not seem to matter if I enter the relative path or the full path in that field. I am not sure what to do with various Redirect Behavior options.
