Posted by viralr on December 28, 2016

Issue :-

You have successfully installed Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 or Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. The installation process may have failed or been interrupted at some stage and then resumed and finally completed successfully. However, when you try to access Exchange Control Panel (ECP) or Outlook Web App (OWA), you receive the following error message:

“500 : – ( something went wrong”
The server operation timed out. Please try again later.

OR Vice Versa
