i was in the middle of configuring ArcGIS Server 10.1 in the rest ADMIN where i was enabling HTTPS only instead of HTTP then imported an SSL certificate when suddenly the connection with the ADMIN page got lost and i could not connect again. i get a message the page could not be displayed or found. i was using https://servername:6443/ArcGIS/manager and https://serverName:6443/arcgis/admin/security/config but after i lost the connection, i am not able to open the ArcGIS server pages. in addition, i could not connect using http with port 6080. Moreover, i could not connect to ArcGIS server from ArcCatalog as its complaining about a BAD address.

i forgot to mention that i checked the service for ArcGIS server and confirmed it is running. i even restarted the service several times and restarted the host server with no luck.

we are running ArcGIS server 10.1 on Windows Sever 2008 R2 environment NO web adapter configured

how to re-establish the connection to ArcGIS Server manager or rest pages ?

is there a way to reset the configuration from HTTPS only to HTTPs and HTTP ?

is there a way to default back these security changes in ArcGIS Server ?

appreciate any input
