Removed IIS and replaced it, now OWA and EMC aren't working.

I did a really stupid thing here.  I was having huge problems with the Symantec Endpoint Management Console and I finally got the issue escalated and worked with seemingly knowledgeable tech.  We put a lot of time in and got no where, so he suggested I remove IIS and then re add it.  DUMB.  I listed though, not really thinking through all of the implications.  That didn't fix the problem with SEPM by the way.

The server in question is Windows Server 2008 Standard R2.  It is the domain controller and runs Exchange.  Now, now one can access the OWA site.  When navigating to the url I get: Problem loading Page The connection was reset.  I also get this error when I try to get into the Exchange Management Console.

Just remove and re-install the Client Access role.  This will reconfigure IIS for the client access roles.

We may need to re-create some of the other virtual directories afterwards.

If you are not already running Service Pack 1 for Exchange 2010 then installing this will do all the repair work.

You shouldn't uninstall IIS from an Exchange Server.

I have tried to remove and re-install the client access role, but I can't find it in the list.  I have gone through all the roles several times and don't see it.  I was already running Service pack 1.  I agree I shouldn't have uninstalled IIS, I'll never make that mistake again!

From a command prompt run from the drive/path with the Exchange 2010 media/install files:

Setup.com /mode:uninstall /roles:ca

Then run:

Setup.com /mode:install /roles:ca

To re-install it.

When I run setup.com/mode:install /roles:ca It say welcome to Microsoft unattended Setup, Then says Preparing Exchange setup.

Under that it says copying setup files but then goes directly back to the command prompt.  Is that normal, when I did the uninstall it went through a whole process but the install seemed to happen in a matter of seconds.

If you run the setup.exe from the DVD/Install Location and go through the installation screens is Client Access Checked?

Outlook in now connected back to the exchange server.  I think the above error may have had to do with IIS not stopping and restarting.

Also the OWA is now working.  Now the only problem I am experiencing is the above error from the EMC.

Do you have any bindings set on the Default Website?

What Virtual Directories do you see listed under it?

ercaseyAuthor Commented:
I must admit, (which is probably obvious) that I don't know much about IIS.  I will attach screen captures of bindings and Virtual Directories
