I am receiving HTTP 500 errors when running tests from testexchangeconnectivity.com/
I have already uninstalled and re-installed the RPC proxy twice. When I go to https://webmail.mydomain.org/rpc/rpcproxy.dll I get page cannot be displayed. I have checked and verified that my SSL settings are correct in IIS and I have checked the authentication settings are correct as according to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg263433(v=exchg.80).aspx. Please help. Webmail is working as an interim workaround but this has been happening since last week and users are getting restless.

Looking at the above output, it looks like you are not even able to authenticate against IIS RPC virtual directory.

Could you go to Exchange CAS server and try browsing https://localhost/rpc/rpcproxy.dll?

It may throw the certificate warning but don't worry about it.

Put in your credential if it prompts and see if you are getting Blank Page.

Lets do the above steps and I'll tell you what to do next.

There is something messed up in configuration of IIS/ASP.net.

Try changing the Default App Pool to classic. Reset IIS and try browsing the same url again.

I addition to this, look into App and Sys logs for relevant events.

Please let me know the results.
