http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------remove-owavirtualdirectory
 also doesnt work.
it tells me that there is no such object  in AD.

yet new-owavirtualdirectory errors with the fact that it already exisits.

Where its reading it from AD, i have no idea.
there is no IIS spn on the node or cluster, so i have no idea where
its looking in AD.
