After checking authentication, give a try on the encryption level of Forms Based authentication. Set it to None

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I thinks here's the problem.  The genious who names the server used an _ in its name which causes an issue.  The way around this is a created a CNAME record called mail to refer to the exchange server in DNS so when asked for the common name when issuing the certifuicate I used cname.domain name.  As long as I got to https://cname/exchange I can log in.  Does any of this make sense?  Is there a way I can redirect everything coming form https://server_1/exchange to https://cname/exchange?

yes, you just need to have the appropriate DNS records pointing to the IP address of your exchange server and the certificate must match the DNS record

server = server_1
DNS A record = mail.domain.com
certificate subject name = mail.domain.com
