Hi

I feel I have tried everything

but I was setting up certificates and virtual directorys on my exchange 2013

because users would get a blank page after login, but now nothing works

theres a blank page afte login on all iis pages ecp owa and so on

in shell I get the following error

VERBOSE: Connecting to MYEXCH.
New-PSSession : [my.exch.com] Connecting to remote server my.exch.com failed with the following error message : The c
lient cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running
 and is accepting requests. Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination
, most commonly IIS or WinRM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to
analyze and configure the WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig". For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshootin
g Help topic.
At line:1 char:1
+ New-PSSession -ConnectionURI "$connectionUri" -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Excha ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [New-PSSession], PSRemotin
   gTransportException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CannotConnect,PSSessionOpenFailed

Open in new window



I tried everything I could find on the web about this, re-installing iis, (after iis re-install i now get a 500 error page)

WinRM says its fine

It wont let run repair from controlpanel or from setup.


I think I need to get the certificate bindings set properly, and that way get in to ecp to fix the errors, as it seems I have little chance of getting shell back online

I have found the solution, you need to go in to IIS and remove and reapply your SSL cert in the default site and the backend site.

In this scenario he reinstalled the exchange and solved his issue but the correct answer was to bound the certificate to exchange backend in IIS as it is assigned to DWS, you can even see the comment

This error is sometime caused due to the new SSL certificate you installed not being bound to the Exchange Back End website on that Exchange 201x server. To fix this:

1. Open IIS Manager right-click the Exchange Back End website and click Bindings.
2. Select, https and click Edit.
3. If you see “Not selected”, click on Select.
4. Select the "Certificate" you want to use.
5. Apply all the changes and you should be good.
