Exchange 2013 OWA Http to Https redirect not working.
Posted on 2013-09-06
hello I am having a lot of issues trying to get the https redirect working on my 2013 Cas servers both are running windows 2012 and exchange 2013 cu2
if I enter webmail.domain.com it goes to http://webmail.domain.com, if I enter https://webmail.domain.com it will redirect to https://webmail.domain.com/owa
what I want is to enter webmail.domain.com and have it redirect to https://webmail.domain.com.
what I have done so far is the following:
I have entered the redirect on the default website using the 302 page and removed the required ssl from the ssl settings. I have also verified all the following directories are set :
aspnet_client :Enable SSL,Uncheck redirect
Autodiscover Enable SSLUncheck redirect
ecp Enable SSL Uncheck redirect
EWS Enable SSL Uncheck redirect
Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync enable SSL Uncheck redirect
OAB Enable SSL Uncheck redirect
PowerShell DISABLE SSL Uncheck redirect
Rpc Enable SSL Uncheck redirect
this did not work for me, if I just enter webmail.domain.com still get 403 page on one cas server and 500 error on second
2. I went into the error pages on the default website and set the 403 error page to redirect to 302 page with the url https://webmail.domain.com/owa
this did not this did not work for me, if I just enter webmail.domain.com still get 403 page on one cas server and 500 error on second
3. I made a default.htm page and put in the inetpu\wwwroot forlder with the following.
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=https://webmail.domain.com/owa">
and this did not this did not work for me, if I just enter webmail.domain.com still get 403 page on one cas server and 500 error on second
any help would be great. on what to do or even how to reset it and start over.
all 3 of these are still in place.
is there a different default.htm code to use ? should I just remove it completely, or remove the redirect on the 403 page ?
I just really need it to redirect from webmail.domain.com to https://webmail.domain.com/owa. this is how it is currently working on 2007.
if I enter https://webmail.domain.com it will redirect to https://webmail.domain.com/owa on both cas servers.
