Can’t login to Exchange Admin Center after a clean Exchange 2013 installation

Yesterday, after a clean installation of MS Exchange 2013 RU7 i have some problems to login to the Exchange Admin Center using Exchange administrative credentials

I can successfully connect to the Exchange Power Shell but something seems to be wrong with FormsAuthentication,

IIS log is registering error code “302 0” every time I try to login to the url: https://myservername/ecp/?exchclientver=15

Here is what I did:

I ran the following cmdlet to check ecp virtualdirectory authentication:

Get-Ecpvirtualdirectory -server MYSERVER | fl identity,*auth*

I ran the following cmdlet to change Windows Authentication and Forms Authentication

Set-EcpVirtualDirectory -Identity “MYSERVER\ecp (default web site)” -windowsauthentication $true -formsauthentication $false

Then IISreset to apply changes, 

Then I was able to login successfully to Exchange Admin Center on https://servername/ecp/?exchclientver=15 and I was ready to migrate the Exchange Admin mailbox to a new Exchange 2013 Database.

Once the Exchange Admin mailbox have been migrated, I ran the following cmdlet to enable  Forms Authentication and disable Windows Authentication, as default setting.

Set-EcpVirtualDirectory -Identity “MYSERVER\ecp (default web site)” -windowsauthentication $false -formsauthentication $true
