Exchange 2010 OWA not working via internal IP address...

I have a Dell PET300 running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and Exchange Server 2010 Standard and all was working as expected.  This morning during my maintenance window I uninstalled the Hyper-V role from the server as we are not going to use it.  As required, the server rebooted and when I tested access OWA externally and internally it did not work.  More troubleshooting steps have revealed the following:

 1. doesn't work.
 2.  https://localhost/owa works
 3. works

All of my services appear to be running fine; I just can't figure this issue out.  I even went so far as to install Hyper-V again hoping that would correct the problem, but no luck.  I also ran updatecas.ps1, but again no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like the wrong IP address is bound in IIS manager, something like that.
Hyper-V does make changes to the networking stack on the server, so you should check the IP address and then look at the bindings in IIS manager. I don't think this is an Exchange issue at all.

Sembee2 - Thank you for your quick response.  I, also, don't think it is an Exchange issue but rather an IIS issue.  Before posting, I did check the bindings and the correct internal IP address of was listed.  Please see attached screen shot.

Sembee2 - after looking through IIS and determining everything was setup correctly, I had a hunch to check the local IP address of the Exchange server...low and behold, it was changed back to what it was prior to installation of the Hyper-V.  I changed the IP address to the correct and everything is again working.
