serious issues with OWA

OWA works 50/50.  i have tried many things by resetting permissions on directories to stopping and restarting exchange services that reside on the front end OWA servers.  we ahve one exchange server and 2 OWA servers.  do i need both?  can i turn the one off?  also is this causing a problem with exchange?  i also think that the permissions a messed up and have done what i could to rectify.  please help

Exchange 2003? Do you have different domains for some of your users?

you do not need 2 OWA, in fact 1 is the way to go, OWA can be restored in no time if problems arise, stop the WWW service on one of them and try and make sure all users have the logon locally right to the IIS machine where the running OWA is located

no can do right now.  these 2 servers are front end servers and have both POP and OWA.  i have made significant changes to permissions that were once removed from the server.  (never let an employee find out his day are numbered)  so i continue to have users who try to authenticate but cant.  then i have others who can log on with no problems at all.  any ideas?
