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

Alan HardistyCommented:
Have you run the command suggested above?

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

If not - please do.

Does it run happily?

dthomas13Author Commented:
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.

Alan HardistyCommented:
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.

Alan HardistyCommented:
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!
