urgent - Exchange 2010 ESM isn't working

I'm having a lot of trouble with exchange 2010 at the minute.

I'm struggling to fix it!

I get this error when opening exchange powershell

WARNING: Cannot generate Export-Module for the current session, using Import-PSession.
Import-PSSession : Executing Get-Command command in remote session reported the following error: Starting a command on
remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client cannot process the request. It cannot determin
e the content type of the HTTP response from the destination computer. The content type is absent or invalid. For more
information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic..


When I open ESM I get this error message:

Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client cannot process the request. It cannot determine the content type of the HTTP response from the destination computer. The content type is absent or invalid. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topc. It was running the command 'Discover-ExchangeServer -UseWIA $true -SuppressError $true'.

Now I have double checked lots of things that seem to beon the web for this error but none of them seem to work.

The only thing that has changed was the certificate for OWA. I added a new certificate to iis for OWA. OWA works fine with the new certificate but I can't get ESM or exchange powershell to work at all.

Any tips from anyone ? Really need help with this ASAP.

I have done the stuff on this page http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2010/02/04/453946.aspx

it all seems fine.
I think there is an issue with IIS but it all points to the bindings which look find, see the image attached.

You should only install a certificate for Exchange using the wizard in the Exchange Managenent Console.

By doing it directly in IIS you have probably prevented Exchange accessing required components.

Uninstall the certificate by doing the reverse of what you did and then restart the server.

Uninstalled the certificate and that didn't help.

Got m own solution by speaking to Microsoft support.
Took a copy off the EDB files. Ran eseutil on them to get them to clean shutdown state.
Built a new exchange 2010 server.

Then had to run eseutil /d on the edb as I couldn't mount them to the new server. Something to do with time stamps being wrong.

Once mounted, I had to run the set mailbox to set everyone up on the new DB and all is well now.
