Redirect Exchange OWA to default site and force SSL in Exchange 2010

OWA redirect to default site forcing SSL

is useful If you have those one or two users who cant seem to remember to add the https or the OWA to the exchange OWA url.

To do this via IIS manger can be time consuming and tricky, below is the script which I came across (Mark Smith) which does it for you, just create a batch file with the script and run it once. The only thing you need to modify is https://mail.domain.com/owa

c:
cd \Windows\System32\inetsrv

appcmd.exe ADD Backup “OWA REDIRECT BACKUP 01”

appcmd set config “default web site” -section:httpRedirect /childonly:true /enabled:true
appcmd set config “default web site” -section:system.webServer/httpRedirect -destination:”https://mail.domain.com/owa”
