http to https redirect not working, Exchange 2010 OWA

AFternoon everyone,

I just successfully transitioned an Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 email system. The only part not working is the http to https redirect on OWA. It works for https://server1.domain.local to the /owa https://server1.domain.local/owa but not for the initial http -- https redirection.
In IIS where this all matters, here are the settings. I'm sure I have it setup correctly.
Default Website - SSL off, redirect on
-- aspnet_client - SSL on, redirect off
-- autodiscover - SSL on, redirect off
-- ecp - SSL on, redirect off
-- EWS - SSL on, redirect off
-- Exchange - SSL off, redirect off
-- Exchweb - SSL off, redirect off
-- Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync - SSL on, redirect off
-- OAB - SSL on, redirect off
-- OWA - SSL on, redirect off
-- PowerShell - SSL off, redirect off
-- Public - SSL off, redirect off

What error are you getting on the client side when you connect to the http URL?

For the default web site in ISS, check to make sure the redirect behavior is setup 'only for redirection to this directory (not subdirectories)' ...or something like that I forget what the actual prompt is.

Also just as a check, did you reset iis (iisreset)
