How to resolve the Exchange Control Panel automatically redirecting to OWA.
You know sometimes when you start looking at problems that just be so obvious and yet they take you a while to resolve - and the answer is blooming obvious? Yeah, that.
A colleague contacted me today with issues accessing ECP in Exchange 2013 - he was saying it just redirected him to OWA, and not the control panel. Could I simulate this behaviour? Oh no. Every single time it worked for me.
Anyways, we finally set up a screen share and something obvious stuck out - he wasn’t putting the trailing ‘/‘ in the address. By way of example:
What I was doing - Worked:
What he was doing - redirected to OWA
https://exch2013.contoso.local/ecp <- Note no trailing /
So there’s your answer - make sure you include the trailing ‘/‘ when accessing the ECP.
