HTTP SSL services problem after removing ISA 2004.

Hello,

Actually I have two issues, the first one that appear is similar to this http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_26221054.html
The second is the following which happen after a reboot. On one of our SBS 2003 Servers will not start the HTTP SLL services, due to
this don't also start the World Wide Web Publishing-service. Below are the
events occurring in logbook:

-----------------------------------------------
Type:      Error

Event ID      7001
Date:            18-11-2008
Time:            13:27:51
User:            n.v.t.
Computer:      SERVER-CO-01
Description:
The HTTP SSL service depends on the HTTP service which failed to start
because of the following error: The system cannot find the file specified..


I need to first resolve the HTTP SSL issue and then move on to the first issue.

Any assistance would be welcome.

Thanks

Frank

Have you re-run the CEICW after removing ISA?

Thanks Cris, that is the document I used to uninstall ISA, I have resolved the"The HTTP SSL service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified."  issue by running msconfig, hiding all MS services and disabling all the rest, I set my exhcange services to manual as my server was taking an hour to reboot. The server is now booting in 10 min and all is working ok except OWA from external sites. So I am needing assistance now in fixing my IIS or what ever else is wrong.

thanks

does OWA work internally??   https://server.domain.local/exchange??

yes it does Cris
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
Does RWW work from outside the building...just trying to track down more specifically where the issue might be
FrawsonAuthor Commented:
Cris when I try and access externally, say from home, i get the security exception and then this error
Http Error:404 Page does Not Exists !
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
You removed ISA...are you down to 1 nic or 2?
Did you re-run any of the wizards after removing ISA?
FrawsonAuthor Commented:
Chris I am down to 1 Nic, I ran CEICW a few times now, It does fail on the firewall config, but as I am aware this is normal for 1 nic.
I plan to go in tomorrow and rerun CEICW with two nics and see what happens.
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
when you have the chance, can you post the results of running "IPCONFIG /all" (without the quotes) from the server with one nic?
FrawsonAuthor Commented:
it is as follows:

Windows IP Configuration



   Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . :  removed

   Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . : removed

   Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown

   IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

   WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes

   DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : Removed.local



Ethernet adapter LAN:



   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.5

   NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Disabled
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
NetBios over Tcpip does not need to be disabled...in fact I would enable it and reboot
In a two nic scenario..the external nic has it disabled but not the internal nic

Chris was very helpful and pointed me in the right directions to solve the issues.
After adding back the second Nic and re running ICEW, the issue is solved.
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
If it's convenient would love to see results of ipconfig /all now  and indicate which is the nic you put back in   Thanks for the points

Hi Chris
it looks likes this:
Windows IP Configuration



   Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : RSMASSSRV01

   Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . : RSMAss.local

   Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown

   IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

   WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes

   DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : RSMAss.local



Ethernet adapter LAN:



   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) 82574L Gigabit Network Connection

   Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-15-17-AC-8E-0D

   DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No

   IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.5

   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.5

THe BPA also found many issues.

thanks
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
There is still only 1 nic here...you said you added the second nic back and it fixed it.
So I was hoping to see the IPCONFIG that showed both nics?
FrawsonAuthor Commented:
that was correct, after that I then again removed the 2nd nic again and it was still working. :)
