    Hi All,

    As far as I know, the default setup of SBS 2003 works out of the box.
    But … on a normal Exchange 2003 server, to set up RPC over HTTPS, you need to change some registry settings, preferably with rpcnofrontend.
    Is this also needed on SBS 2003 R2 ?

    No, just run the wizard.

    The tool reports “before” and “after” registry entries.
    Isn’t it weird that the “before” entries are different from what the tool says it should be ?

    Still have a question about this.

    I have backed up my server (after I finally found the reverse).

    I ran the rpcnofrontend tool and this was in the LOG file :

    RPC Single Server Registry Modifications
    Coded by Harry Bates – [email protected]ethttp://www.rocksystems.net


    KEY=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftRpcRpcProxy
    VALUENAME=ValidPorts


    PREVIOUS SETTING=servername:593;servername:6001-6002;servername:6004;servername.domain.local:593;servername.domain.local:6001-6002;servername.domain.local:6004


    NEW SETTING=servername:6001-6002;servername.domain.local:6001-6002;webmail.mydomain.com:6001-6002;servername:6004;servername.domain.local:6004;webmail.mydomain.com:6004

    Before I ran it, RPC over HTTPS worked.
    After I ran it, and rebooted the server, RPC over HTTPS still works.

    Which are the proper settings and what is the difference ?

    I realy hope somebody can tell me.
