https://yourservername/ecp

If you see that OWA opens instead of the ECP then this is because you are trying to access the ECP from a CAS server, the ECP console must be ran from a server that has the Mailbox role installed. Another symptom of this is when you try and run the Exchange 2013 Toolbox.
