Determine Whether SSL is enabled on CAS Server IIS Root Directory

[This topic is intended to address a specific issue called out by the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool. You should apply it only to systems that have had the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool run against them and are experiencing that specific issue. The Exchange Server Analyzer Tool, available as a free download, remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. The resulting report details important configuration issues, potential problems, and nondefault product settings. By following these recommendations, you can achieve better performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime.

The Microsoft Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer checks the Windows Server 2008-based Client Access server (CAS) to see whether Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is enabled on the Internet Information Services (IIS) root directory. If SSL is enabled on the IIS root directory, HTTP redirection from another CAS does not work.

To resolve this issue, disable SSL on the IIS root directory of the CAS.

For more information about how to disable SSL, see Disable Secure Sockets Layer (IIS 7).
