I am installing exchange 2010 standard for the first time and am unable to view it in the management console. I keep getting an error message this one i believe is due to all sites are https enabled not sure how to turn that off. anyway here is the messag I'm recieving

connecting to remote server failed with the fallowing error message : the winrm client received an http status code of 403 from the remote ws-management service.

any help would be much appreciated

DNS pointing to internal servers only on the network card?

Any changes made to the IIS configuration from the default?

Run the Best Practises tool from the toolbox, see what that flags.

Hey Simon

Thanks for the response here is the answers to your questions.

both dns servers are local

haven't made any changes to IIS just installed it.

I have no toolbox in the exchange management console.

another issue i'm having is when i go to install the client access role i get this error message

Summary: 3 item(s). 1 succeeded, 1 failed.

Client Access Role

The following error was generated when " $error.Clear(); $InternalOwaUrl=" https://" + $RoleFqdnOrName + " /owa" ; new-OwaVirtualDirectory -DomainController $RoleDomainController -InternalUrl $InternalOwaUrl;" was run: " An error occurred while creating the IIS virtual directory 'IIS://DENCOFAM.denco-enterprises.com/W3SVC/1/ROOT/owa' on 'DENCOFAM'." .

An error occurred while creating the IIS virtual directory 'IIS://exchange.testserver.comW3SVC/1/ROOT/owa' on 'exchange'.

ISAPI extension owaauth.dll in group MSExchangeClientAccess wasn't found and its status can't be changed. Please make sure this ISAPI extension (IIS Web service extension) is still listed in IIS Manager. If it's not, it may need to be added again.

Toolbox is part of every Exchange installation, so it should be there.

Personally though, I would remove Exchange, and wipe the machine. An Exchange installation on a new installation of Windows should work straight out of the box. It looks like you either have a bad installation of Exchange or IIS. A repair of a new installation isn't really acceptable because you don't know what else has gone wrong with the install that you cannot see and which might bite you later on (even months).

Hi Brian,

Does the issue persist after starting a new installation of exchange 2010?
