  • can't access https://server/exadmin (or subdirs) on SBS2k3

    A recent vendor requirement brought up the fact that our SBS (2k3 r2) server throws up a 404 error when trying to access

    https://server / exadmin / admin / domain.com / MBX / user @ domain.com / Tasks
    (please ignore the spaces as I had trouble in putting this link up without them)

    yet there is a virtual IIS directory installed for https://server/exadmin. I remember something like this in the Exchange 2k days but donít remember running across it in 2k3.

    Looking around I have several SBS servers that seem to have the same symptoms and thought that not having webdav installed might be the common problem. I've since installed webdav on one server, along with all MS updates, but it doesn't seem to resolve the issue. I have also rebuilt the IIS virtual Exchange directories with no luck.

    What components am I missing for in order to get this functionality to work?

    Many thanks in advance!

    I am curious why the vendor wants to access that directory in the first place. As far as I am aware the exadmin directory is not designed to be access directly, it is an internal thing.

      they want access to
      https://server / exadmin / admin / domain.com / MBX / user @ domain.com / Tasks
      (please ignore the spaces as I had trouble in putting this link up without them)

      so that through 'web services' they can manipulate/snyc the data between Exchange and an external data source on which their application sits.

      ... or so I'm told. unfortunately, I'm not a developer so I don't really understand the nitty gritty details of what they are doing
