when I go to https://servername/exchange I get a IE page cannot display the webpage.  My OWA was working just fine until today when I had to become PCI compliant and make a couple changes with disabling forms based authenication and Set the UseHostName Property: cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/x/UseHostName true.  Now OWA doesn't work internally or externally.
I've tried reversing both changes, but OWA still won't work.

First please delete sethostname entry.

adsuitil get w3svc/1/sethostname

and see if there is an enty if yes

adsutil delete w3svc/1/sethostname

and please reset the virtual directroies by using method 2 of KB 883380.

now check again if owa works and make sure there is all unassigned selected in default website
Turns out the use sethostname needed to be false and the host name itself had to be removed in order for owa to start working again.
