I've recently set up a new (virtual) Exchange 2007 server within our existing domain to replace our old Exchange 2007 physical server.  As the old is nearly ready for decommissioning, I switched our existing OWA address ( to point to our new server.  However, when I attempted to test it last night, I was surprised to find that it resolved to the new exchange server's internal IP address (after typing in, I received a certificate warning and the browser's address bar showed it trying to load https://192.168.x.x).

I tested this internally this morning and found that the login page loads, but after inputting credentials, does not advance to a content page.

Could somebody help point me toward the setting that I either missed or messed up?  Thanks!
