fresh install of Exchange 2019 mailbox Server on Windows Server 2019 Standard. Cannot access https://localhost/ecp, always end up in "Windows Admin Center". This really sucks for an out of the box install.
WAC makes a total mess of the bindings on the machine you install it, so I wouldn't recommend doing so on any server that has any sort of IIS-dependent application. And the best part is that even if you uninstall WAC, it doesn't properly clean up, at least it didn't the last time I run into this issue.
Thanks a lot for your input, could not agree more. However, since I certainly did not install WAC, I suspect the Exchange 2019 setup having installed it, will investigate further. Yes, uninstalling that junk does not do any good, the bindings are screwed beyond repair.
I just did a fresh install of Server 2019 and Exchange 2019 and every URL redirects to Window Admin Center. I type in https://<server>/ecp --> redirects to Admin Center, I type in https://<server>/foo redirects to Admin Center.
This is a canned install and nothing seems to work to get me into the Exchange Server Manager.
