An error occurred while using SSL configuration for endpoint

Posted on 2015-02-19

I've having nothing but problems with Exchange Server 2013, all the way from installation. I've been trying to troubleshoot a certificate error I've been having with Outlook clients and Exchange Server 2013. I removed the wildcard certificate I've been trying to use, and now I can't get into the Exchange Web Console. I immediately receiving a page cannot be displayed error. I check the logs and I'm receiving hundreds of SSL errors. (An error occurred while using SSL configuration for endpoint  The error status code is contained within the returned data.)

Any Ideas!?

well you cant login to EMC if there is no certificate. Is this self sign or third party cert? You should get it back and then start troubleshooting.
What kind of errors did you receive before you removed cert? Usually event viewer solves many things with exchange.
Get that cert back and report errors :)

-          Open the Command Prompt
-          Run-
netsh http show sslcert
-          This will show the certs, copy and paste this information into notepad.  Under     IP:port   :, note the certificate hash and application ID.
-          Run this command-  (Yes, I know there is no :444 listed in the output from the earlier command.)
netsh http delete sslcert ipport=
-          Run this command.  Replace certhas with the certificate hash and appid with the application ID you saved in notepad.
netsh http add sslcert ipport= certhash=123123123123123 appid="{123123123123-1231231235}"

-          Reboot the server.

I was able to resolve my issue. I had to export the wildcard certificate from another exchange server and import the certificate into IIS.
