Droid X won't connect via Corporate Sync with Exchange on SBServer 2003

I have a client with a new Droid X that can't connect to his server via Corporate Sync. I can connect the phone to a totally different company's server, different email, etc. with no issues. That server also runs SBServer2003 SP2. Results for the two servers from http://testexchangeconnectivity.com are virtually identical but for the IP's. SSL Certs on both. When I try to connect on the clients server I get a "success" after plugging in the information, but when I try to sync I get a generic Connection Error and no connection. Tried everything I can think of but obviously there is something not right on the client's server. All ports open and forwarded, exactly the same on both. Don't know where to go next, awaiting a call from Tier 3 Motorola, who knows when that will happen. Any help greatly appreciated.

This is the first device that they have tried to connect. I just went through the above link and now everything is setup as it should be according to that.

Fixed the issue. Found some events in the viewer that were not being logged yesterday. Active Sync started throwing 500 errors and there were also events "MSExchangeIS Event ID 9667 Failed to create a new named property for database". Increased the limit and all began to flow with no issues.

MegaNuk3 giving you the points on this as that link you sent was money and sure that this wasn't the only issue.

Thank you!
