You can remove and re-create the Activesync Virtual Directory if necessary.

Any particular reason for needing to do so?

Hey Alan,

We have a brand new exchange server setup, and I tried to remove and rcreate the VD but ran into problems.

For one I removed it with IIS instead of PS. Since doing with IIS when I try to remove it, it says it does not exist. When I try to readd it under PS I get the following:

PS] C:\Windows\system32>New-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory dmron\Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
The virtual directory 'Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync' already exists under 'TREM-EX1.tremron.local/Default Web Site'.
Parameter name: VirtualDirectoryName
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (TREM-EX1\Micros...fault Web Site):ADObjectId) [New-ActiveSyncVirtualDi
   rectory], ArgumentException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 787D297B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.NewMobileSyncVirtualDire
   ctory

Have you run the command suggested above?

Remove-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -Identity "Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync (Default Web Site)"

If not - please do.

Does it run happily?

It ran Happily, and I was about to recreate it, but another admin, had contacted MS and I guess is on the phone with their support team, so I could not finish. I will let you know what happens. Thanks a lot.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Oh well - it should be a simple (but costly fix with MS).

At least it will get resolved one way or another.

Thanks for the points and have a good weekend.

Yea exactly@alan. I thought it was a pretty simple fix, I just did not know that PS and IIS kind of created their own seperate VD's.

Thank you for the answer, it was awesome.

They are one and the same - just easier to manage via PS than IIS sometimes.

Fingers crossed you can get Activesync working happily soon.  If not - come back for further help.

Hey alan, MS refunded our Tech Support Call because they did not really do anything. I gave my boss the command to run right before he got on the phone with them. Thank you once again!
