    I have just finished installing a new SBS 2003 server at a client of mine.
    Thinking back of what I used to do, following the Petri guide, to activate RPC over HTTPS, I re-read the article at :

    It states the following :

    – Click Start, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.

    – Expand your organization, expand Administrative Groups > First Administrative Group > Servers.

    – Right-click on your server name and select Properties.

    – On the General tab, verify that you have SP1 installed.
    Verify that a tab called RPC-HTTP is present.

    – On the RPC-HTTP tab, click on RPC-HTTP Back-End Server.

    – You might get an error:

    Exchange System Manager
    There is no RPC-HTTP front-end in your Exchange organization.
    There must be at least one RPC-HTTP front-end server in the organization
    before the RPC-HTTP back-end server can be accessed.

    Acknowledge the error.

    What I don’t understand is that when I set up an SBS 2003 server, that setting is set to “Not part of an Exchange managed RPC-HTTP topology”, but RPC over HTTPS simply works.
    How come ?
    Do I still need this setting ?
