Message Tracking not working with Exchange 2010

I am having issues with the Message Tracking from the EMC. If I use the Message Tracking feature from PowerShell everything works. Seems like its only when I try to access it from the GUI.

Issue: I log on to the EMC and open the Message Tracking and get prompted for my username and password. As soon as I enter the username and password I get "The webpage cannot be found. HTTP 400" The services are all working properly on the server.

Can you access anything else in ECP?

Hello,

I believe your issue is caused by using IIS admin tools to administer the ECP virtual directory instead of Exchange Management Console.  The auth settings for NTLM should look like this:
 
InternalAuthenticationMethods : {Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated}
 BasicAuthentication           : False
 WindowsAuthentication         : True
 DigestAuthentication          : False
 FormsAuthentication           : False
 LiveIdAuthentication          : False
 
Yours look like this:
 
InternalAuthenticationMethods : {Basic, Fba}
 BasicAuthentication           : False
 WindowsAuthentication         : True
 DigestAuthentication          : False
 FormsAuthentication           : False
 LiveIdAuthentication          : False
 
While the flag for WindowsAuthentication says $true, the InternalAuthenticationMethods property directs IIS to apply FBA.  The fix would be to go into Exchange Management Console and set Windows Auth setting there.  If it's already set, change it to FBA first, apply, then back to Windows and apply again.  When you run Get-ECPVirtualDirectory | fl *Authentication*  on cmdline you should get settings similar to my first example.
 
Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi Andy,

I think were on to something here. This might be the issue. Where would I go to in the EMC to change the Internal Authentication Method to Ntlm and WindowsIntegradted?

Here is the outcome of the command, Get-ECPVirtualDirectory | fl *Authentication*

InternalAuthenticationMethods : {Basic, Fba, Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated}
BasicAuthentication           : True
WindowsAuthentication         : True
DigestAuthentication          : False
FormsAuthentication           : True
LiveIdAuthentication          : False
ExternalAuthenticationMethods : {Fba}

In the Exchange 2010 management console there is an option to reset virtual directories. Do that, and reset the ECP virtual directory.

Issue has been resolved. I had to run the CasUpdate script.
