Exchange 2007 ActiveSync stopped working on SBS 2008
Posted on 2013-05-28
I have an SBS 2008 server with Exchange 2007 running and am having a problem with Activesync. When I initally set the server up a year ago it was working fine but now I am unable to get it to work at all.
I ran the accessmylan activesync tester as well as the microsoft remote connectivity analyser and they came back as activesync is not installed.
I then went to uninstall and reinstall the activesync virtual directory through the Exchange Managment Shell and was successfully able to remove it but am now getting an error trying to create it. The error states:
new-activesyncvirtualdirectory : An error occurred while creating the IIS
At line:1 char:1

ons):ADObjectId) [New-ActiveSyncVirtualDirectory], InvalidOperationExcepti
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 50A0BD64,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemCon
After some research I found an article suggesting editing the applicationhost.config IIS file and manually removing the activesync entry from there. However when looking through the file, the activesync entry is not present.
I'm not sure where to look or how to proceed troubleshooting at this point.
