Reset Exchange 2010 Virtual Directories via GUI

Whenever there is an issue to talk about troubleshooting OWA which results in resetting  the virtual directories I have always seen the PowerShell version of it but how easy to do it via GUI. so why not to do it 🙂

Goto Exchange — Server Configuration — Client Access – Right Click the Client Access Server and follow the steps below

reset-virtual-dir-1

reset-virtual-dir-2

reset-virtual-dir-3

reset-virtual-dir-4

reset-virtual-dir-5

DO NOT FORGET TO RUN iisrest /noforce on the CAS Server/Servers

Cheers:)

 

Alias in header being overwritten by Primary SMTP Alias

Very common and very know topic for New Exchange Admins.
By default each e-mail address has one default policy and it is setup when you configure your Exchange Server. So if you setup your Exchange with Contoso.local it will setup as yourname@contoso.local and this will become your REPLY Address. What happens is that at recipients side when they hot reply it will be repling to .local address not to the .com and you will never receive the reply. In order to fix it un-check the Automatically upgrade e-mail address based on e-mail address policy and you are all set.

Creating Exchange 2013 Certificate – Step by Step

njucug1

To create certificate is very simple like previous version except it is web based GUI and you may find different for the first time but it gets very easy. The only thing thing I don’t like is the Import/Export feature because you may find the option unless you clik some option in other words it is not written even on the click to Export/Import the certificate, there are just three four DOT DOT DOT (yes I  mean it and you will see it). Lets begin with creating the certificate
