Cannot access exchagne control panel

I can no longer access the exchange control panel.  I used to be able to access it using the following link:


Now the link takes me to an OWA login.  There were updates done on the server recently but I can't be sure if it was accessible before the updates since we don't use the ECP much.  Any idea why the server is behaving this way and how to resolve it?

Try just:   https://c4hmail2/ecp
 or after you have logged onto owa change the /owa to /ecp.

Restart the IIS service

Log onto the exchange server open IIS go to deafult web site and click the ecp application click browse :443 on the right hand side.

In IIS check the virtural path for ecp and make sure there is no redirect for ecp.

I did find a redirect under the Exchange Back End site.  Unchecking it resolved the issue.  What is the difference between the default site and the back end site?  The default site did not have it checked.

It's a bit complicated - but it mainly has to do with how roles being installed on different servers (front-end/back-end).  In previous version of exchange  the IIS part was all managed under the one site.  You can read more here
