Exchange Powershell IIS logs full with Active Monitor

Occasional Contributor

Good afternoon,

 

We've finished a migration to Exchange 2019 CU 11  latest security update (march 8)

Now we want to look at hybrid (exchange online/Teams) integration.

 

We have a proxy server and when i connect the proxy I get the following error in the Exchange management shell 

New-PSsession connecting to remote server (itself) failed with the following reasons: Connection to the remote host refused. Verify that the WS-management (Web Services-Management) service is running. 

When i look in my IIS logs I see logs of 3 gig with the following messages:

It hangs the Exchange powershell and finally it writes the disk literally full. 
What's going on here?

 

Kind regards,

 

Andre

Are these health active monitoring features, that are reported in the IIS log?
And is the routing not right? Because it tries to pol a proxy server instead of the second Exchange server.

And why does it pol every second instead of 5 minutes or every hour?
Microsoft says that it could have a relation with the Crl checking. But I would like to know if that's the case how do i control the time interval and prevent the polling on my proxyserver.
Even when i disable proxy it keeps on trying to reach it.

I hope my questions and directions can help you a bit with understanding the issue.

Solution
Solution was a wrong proxy configuration:

set-exchangeserver Exch1 -internetwebproxy http://yourproxy:80 -InternetWebProxyBypassList @("local","domain.local")

Now you let you local traffic go local and only proxy traffic via proxy
