Hi Support,

OWA has stopped working after i un-installed Mail Marshall exchange, i get the following error below when i test connectivity on site:

Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
Test Steps
ExRCA is attempting to obtain the SSL certificate from remote server on port 443.
ExRCA wasn't able to obtain the remote SSL certificate.
Additional Details
The certificate couldn't be validated because SSL negotiation wasn't successful. This could have occurred as a result of a network error or because of a problem with the certificate installation.

Please assist Thanks,

    Check to see if the certificate is still there, if not try to re-import the ssl certificate.

    Guys, hang on why jumping to create new certs - what if he already has a cert installed.

    @ xpandit: Run the following cmdlet

    Get-ExchangeCertificate - check the output and verify if you have a valid cert.

    Next, check if locally on your CAS server you can browse OWA and verify the cert on your IE, https://localhost/owa

    Hi Thanks for your help, the problem has been resolved. I resolved the problem editing bindings in iis , 443 wasn't looking at the correct certficate.

    The certficate was already valid, but some how un-installing Mail Marshall for Exchange it somehow corrupted iis.
