I had an existing farm that was run on HTTP and we upgraded the farm to be all SSL enabled. I had updated the URLs for all web applications to be https and used URL rewrite rules on all IIS servers to redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS.

This morning I tried changing the AAM for the My Sites collection to be https only. When I did this, I got 401 unauthorized errors when visiting the One Drive or viewing the Newsfeed for a my site. If I add back in the http binding, it works.

Is there any way I can remove the requirement of having an AAM listed for an HTTP site? Do I have to update the Work Management service somehow to only go to HTTPS?

For MySite. You have to make changes two places.

  1. Update the MySite Host in the User Profile Services Settings.
  2. Update AAM for the MYSite.
