Redirect Owa in Exchange 2013

May you want to configure OWA to automatically redirect users from top level directory to /owa virtual directory and force redirection to SSL, here you have what you need to do.
This procedure has been tested under IIS 8.5 with Exchange 2013 CU8.
1.Open IIS manager in Exchange server.
2.Open “SSL settings” feature under “Default Web Site” and “Exchange Back End” website.

3.Uncheck  “Require SSL” checkbox on both websites and click Apply to save changes

4.Then, open “Http Redirect” feature under “Default Web Site” and “Exchange Back End” web Site.

5. Ensure “Redirect request to this destination” checkBox is marked and type your redirect url.
6.Ensure “Only redirect request to content in this directory “ checkbox is also marked and “Status code found (302)” is also selected.
7.Click on “Apply” to save changes.

8.As we don´t need to redirect sub folders to /owa directory we should uncheck the HTTP Redirect option from all the sub directories under “Default Web Site” and “Exchange Back End” Website.

9.If you want to access to ExchangeControl Panel (ecp) only from a secure connection ensure to set SSL settings on /ecp virtual directory only.
