    Thanks so much, Daniel, for the wonderful content on this site. I have been working through configuring SSL for my OWA server, following the directions given on here: as well as the related articles.

    I am running into a problem when I try to verify that SSL is working. After enabling SSL for the Exchange virtual directory, I enter in the normal URL to access OWA, and I get the expected error stating that I need to use https. Upon entering the “s” into the URL, I immediately get a standard IE “The page cannot be displayed” error.

    I’ve investigated for awhile and I think my problem may be related to my Certificate. In the Certificate Authority MMC snap-in, I found the following in “Failed Requests”:
    Request Status Code: The requested certificate template is not supported by this CA.
    Request Dispostion Message: Denied by Policy Module. The request was for a certificate template that is not supported by the Certificate Services policy: Webserver

    Additionally, I get Event ID #77, “The “Windows default” Policy Module logged the following warning: The WebServer Certificate Template could not be loaded. Element not found. 0x80070490 (WIN32: 1168).”

    I’m really not sure what all this means, or if I’m even looking in the right place. I would appreciate some guidance. Thanks so much.
