Exchange ActiveSync Properties Error - Exchange 2010

Greetings. On my Exchange 2010 Enterprise server, in the EMC, when I click on Server Configuration, Client Access and then try to view the Properties of the Exchange ActiveSync site, I get the following error in a dialog box:

"The properties on this object have invalid data. If you click OK, default values will be used instead and will be saved if you do not change them beforing hitting Apply or OK on the property page. If you cancel, the object will be displayed read-only and corrupted values will be retained."

Exchange ActiveSync Properities dialog box with stated error.
What's interesting is that ActiveSync is working fine. Mobile devices are working OK. They are annoying with the problem of creating thousands of transaction logs, but otherwise are connecting OK.

Is this something I need to worry about or fix ? I'm hesistant to change it and break it. The virtual directory is "Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync".  Is something misconfigured in IIS ?

Thanks much.

Look Exchange 2007 onwards if you have some space or symbols it gives such errors so not much to worry.

You can try to get the data from Shell to check what could be the possible error.

When you run the command check for
Internal URL
External URL

Get-ClientAccessServer -Server "ServerName" |fl

Internal and External look fine.  (It's -Identity, not -Server). The Remote Connectivity Analyzer passes the Exchange ActiveSync test completely. Let's see if anyone else has any more ideas before closing. Thanks, Rancy.

Everyone looks ok.  Here's a screencap.  I'm wondering what will change if I click "OK". If I kew I could change it back, I'd do that, but not so sure :-)

ActiveSync Settings from:  Get-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory -Server "ServerName" |fl

Now that is interesting.  Nope, we're on Exchange 2010 SP2, Rollup 2, as indicated below.  I inherited an interesting history.  We went from Exch. 2K3 to Exch. 2010.  They weren't happy with the upgrade ... or something went wrong ... so they migrated to a different Exchange 2010 server.  I've been cleaning up remnants bit by bit for months.  I wonder where the ActiveSync virtual site is getting its version information from :-)

Good question.  We have a number of certs - mostly self-signed.  But the only one I'm using is a GoDaddy UC I purchased earlier this year.  I might add a separate question about this here, but since I have your ear :-), do I need all the extra ones ?

The Expiration dates are too ahead and need to see the details of the cert and see if its being used somewhere ?

I guess as you said a different Question would be better for the cert and why does ActiveSyncVD shows 14.0.100.0 (Which is surely Beta version) ?
But again the Question would be if everything is working fine would you want to run down with this ?

I did get the version slightly wrong.  We're on SP2 - no rollups yet.  But still ... :-)  I think I'll table this one for now.  But since you were so diligent in asking good questions, I'll give you the 500. Thanks much.
