Yesterday I created a self-signed certificate using my Exchange Server. I was able to install and then deleted the old expired cert and two certs with no services assigned. Outlook clients are no longer getting "expired cert" message but OWA and Activesync have quit working. Also, now I can't get to cert web enrollment site. Please help!

Command completed successfully. OWA site still doesn't come up. Neither HTTP or HTTPS...... Restarted IIS, no luck.

Found them @ c:\windows\system32\errorlogs\httperr. They are really long, not sure what I am looking for. See a lot of "Timer_ConnectionIdle" and "2012-04-10 13:51:20 ::1%0 49496 ::1%0 80 HTTP/1.1 POST /powershell?serializationLevel=Full;PSVersion=2.0 - 1 Connection_Dropped MSExchangePowerShellAppPool

I set certsrv folder to http access. I was then able to generate second cert which solved my problem. Evidently, first cert was corrupt as I generated second exactly the same.
