We have had Exchange 2010 running on a Windows Server 2008r2 box. This is for a small company. Recently I went to log into Exchange management console and noticed that it says initialization failed. I have somewhat traced the error down to IIS. In IIS I have troubleshot as much as I know how and cant seem to get things working again. The server has been rebooted, IIS restarted, I changed the port 80 bindings in IIS to the internal server address. I reset the websites, checked authentication, etc. Any help on this would be appreciated very much. Thanks!!

Also I have run the Winrm check utility as well.

The crazy part is that I already changed the bindings for port 80 around while I was previously troubleshooting but I changed it back because that is what the article stated and it fixed it!! I guess timing is everything lol. Thanks!!
