SSL is enabled on the IIS Root Directory
Posted on 2011-03-14
When I ran the Exchange Best Practices Analyzer I received the following warning:
SSL is enabled on the IIS root directory of the Client Access server. This will break HTTP redirection for other client Access servers unless it is disabled. Then when I reached this error i found this:
SSL should be enabled for each Client Access server in your organization if you don't have an SSL offloading device and want to maintain secure communications between client and server. If you want to enable SSL offloading, you must disable SSL on each Client Access server in your organization for which you want to enable SSL offloading. If you disable or enable SSL on an Exchange Web Services virtual directory, you must make a configuration change in both Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and also in a configuration file that's located in the Exchange 2010 installation directory.
How can I tell if I have an SSL offload device, or who should I believe in this instance, since they are contradicting each other? Please advise.
