You can use the Exchange Management Shell to create a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

By default, when Exchange 2010 is installed, a new virtual directory is created in the default Web site in Internet Information Services (IIS). This virtual directory is named Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync. You can create additional Exchange ActiveSync virtual directories under Web sites other than the default Web site. All Exchange ActiveSync virtual directories you create will have the name Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync.

You can also use this procedure to create a new Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory if you've removed the virtual directory because it's become corrupted.
