First thing is to check you have all the required
pre-requisites installed as per: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354.aspx

please note the different scripts for Windows 2008 R2

also have a look at this thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/exchange2010/thread/6f9beabe-34ee-4eae-9e45-3fb74a2ef82a

Did you double check all the pre-requisites in the link I posted in my first post?

What are the authentication methods currently set on the ECP virtual directory in the Exchange Management Console?

If the authentication in Exchange Management Console is current set to Form Based Authentication can you change it to:

Use one or more standard authentication methods then check:

Integrated Windows Authentication
Basic Authentication

not sure if you will need to restar IIS for this change.

Sorry I figured it al out. Instead of adding the port 86 to the bindings i changed the existing 443 to 86, I had to change it due to having another webserer on site with 443, that cannot be changed.
