MS Exchange Admin Center "Error 404"

4051 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  draceplace
A little bit of back story-- Company doesn't have an IT guy, I'm the local PC "expert", they stick me in charge of setting up the new server they purchased. I can accomplish just about anything I want/need out of my computers, so I figured this task wouldn't be too far out of my knowledge range. Mind you, I have zero experience in Server OS. It was purchased from Dell, so all the initial setup was already done.

First, I went in and installed the AD Domain Services and DNS Server roles. Configured the new forest domain to mybusiness.local and restarted server after installation completed.

Then, I downloaded and installed Exchange Server 2016. It did its prerequisite checks and found no errors. Restarted computer and opened Exchange Administrative Center, only to receive the "Object not found. Error 404" nonsense. I double-checked that all Exchange processes were running. The only one I'm having trouble with is Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication. I get a dialog box stating that it started and then stopped.

I've tried researching the issue, but I haven't been able to find anything with a resolution.

Your getting in pretty deep doing an exchange server. Since no one has offered anything you might start here

Thank you for the starting point, Draceplace. While that particular article didn't solve my problem, it put an idea in my head about what it more than likely was. I decided to start over with a completely fresh install of the OS and then started the process over, from scratch. This time, I was successful in getting Exchange to work as expected. The issue was likely due to me having installed XAMPP in an attempt to avoid using IIS. There was conflict and XAMPP was dominant over IIS, which is why Exchange's OWA and ECP were not accessible.
I'm glad that helped. I don't like posting 'non-answers' , its been a long time since I worked with Exchange/Outlook administration. When no one was replying to your post I thought something was better than nothing. As it turns out it did help!
