Exchange 2010 OWA redirect

I have followed a few guides but I have not been able to get this to work.

There is EX03 EX10.  All mailboxes have moved to EX10, the firewall points to EX10, mail comes in and out, OWA works with EX10

There is domain.local and    h


If possible

1.  HTTP redirected to HTTPS

2.   redirect to /owa

3.  able to login without the doimain/

I have ran the reset virtual directory cmdlet to start over

mucho appreciated

Not sure you can redirect http to https and redirect to OWA never tried to be honest.  See here for removing the need for /OWA

As for requiring the domain name at login this is under Server Configuration > Client Access and then properties of the OWA virtual directory.

ahh,  Logon format:

domain\user name
user prinipal name (ups
username only


Looking to see if OWA can be simple.  with or with oout  http or http  with or with out  /exchange /owa    all gets redirected to login page
Glen KnightCommented:
You can redirect http to https, I don't think you can remove the need for /OWA or /exchange at the same time.

It's one or the other.

Do you have a comparable website?

 I'm not sure I follow his Top down structure.  Why wouldn't you modify just  the OWA virtual directory?
Glen KnightCommented:
Because you need to redirect the root directory to the OWA one.

It gets very messy with Exchange 2010 because of all the other requirements.  It's fraught with problems.
There are few ways to achieve http --> https redirec without need to use /owa in url (i.e. custom https error redirect). But Brian's way is the simplest and most elegant.
Works for me at least.
