I have followed the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=817379
When I got to step 8 of Create a secondary virtual directory for
Exchange server I ran into an issue as the exchange-oma vdir already
existed as a sub folder of Default Website in IIS, and I see further
down in that article that SBS must use this name for OMA.
So I deleted the existing exchange-oma vdir from IIS and re-ran the
whole process from the beginning of "Create a secondary virtual
directory for Exchange server" onwards.
My original problem remains.
I followed the link through to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898131/
and ran the steps here as I was unable to browse to https://FQDN/oma
After adding an additional identity for the default website as per
898131 I can now successfully browse the exchange folders of my testoma
Then proceeded to rerun the activesync test at https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/
Same error as before - output below...

Downloaded the IIS Auth Diagnostics Tool (from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
I'll stick those diagnostics in a separate post below.
