Exchange Server 2013 ECP Administration Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have got 1 running Exchange Server 2013 SP1 EX1, and planning to move it to another location.I managed to add a second Exchange Server EX2 with the same version in a different location and make it join the same Organization.

    Both Ex1 and Ex2 can communicate through S2S VPN tunnel. Everything looks goods however, when I disconnect the VPN Tunnel I am not able to login to ECP Administration Console from EX2 localhost https://localhost(ofEX2)/ecp, it throws an http 500 error.

    When the VPN Tunnel is up again it works perfectly.

    What could explain this weird behavior and how can I solve it as I want to decommissioning EX1 and make my email server operational from EX2 .

  • Hi TF,

    Is there the same issue in EX1 server?

    If not, this would be a network issue.

    When disconnect the VPN tunnel, can Ex2 server communicate with DC/GC servers? Is there any firewall between DC and EX2 server?

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Niko,

    I am still facing the same issue, ECP and OWA are not opening on the new Exchange Server EX2.

    I forgot to mention previously, that in the new location I have also created a new Domain Controller DC2 replicated with DC1

    I want to decommission EX1 and DC1 and move completely to EX1 and DC2 on the second location.

    Any other suggestions ?

  • when you decomission ex1 it will work, otherwise its not supported to shut down communication between exchange. Have you really moved all mailboxes, health, arbitration etc?
