Can no longer access the ECP on Exchange 2013

Hi,

I have SBS 2008 that I want to decommission. I have installed Server 2012 Hyper V host and two server 2012 virtuals. One is a DC and F&P server and the other one is a member server and I installed Exchange 2013.
I set up all the connectors etc... and moved the mailboxes over okay, however I could not receive email, so after some failed troubleshooting I moved the mailboxes back over and got the older email back until I can fix that.

Now the issue I am facing is when I log on to https://gnsexch01/ecp?ExchClientVer=15 which worked before a reboot, I get the old "The website cannot display the page". I have rebooted server, but cannot do anything with exchange until I get this working.

Do anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

GNS

Additional Info.

I have two remaining mailboxes on the Exchange 2013 server that I did not move off and so I cannot uninstall Exchange and start again. Neither can I move the mailboxes off it from the Exchange 2007 console as it says it cannot connect to mailbox.

-Thanks,

There is no migration path from any previous version of Exchange to Exchange 2013 at the moment, so if you have them both in the same Forest then you are in an unsupported state.

The error you have posted can often mean the SSL certificate is corrupt and the SSL session isn't being established.

Are you able to use EMS? If so then you can initiate a move mailbox from there. Then remove Exchange 2013 and wait until a supported migration path is available or migrate to Exchange 2010.

EMS on Exchange 2013. As you are in an unsupported configuration though, it is hard to say whether it will work at all.

Okay so I am on an unsupported config.

How can I get the ECP to work on 2013? Is must be an IIS issue as the ECP is web based.THe issue cannot be that it is a co-existance as it did work.

Any IIS gurus that can help!

Where have you got the idea that you are now in a supported configuration? As of today (19th March 2013) you are not in a supported configiration.

Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2013 in the same Forest is not supported until CU1 is released.
I would remove Exchange 2013 completely and wait until CU1 is released and install that. The documentation for migration will then be released as well.
