OWA/IIS Loses Settings on Server Reboot

Guys,

Overview of system:

Exchange Server:
Windows 2000 Server SP4
Exchange 2000 SP3
IIS

Our Outlook Web Access works great most of the time, however every time I need to complete a server reboot (when I say server I mean the server running IIS for OWA) it seems to lose its settings and users can't login to OWA.  When I check directory security on the Exchange option in IIS it seems to have changed from the pre-reboot config.

Does anyone know of an issue with this and if so how to fix?  It is not a big problem, but if I go on vacation etc OWA will not come up automatically after a server reboot.

Any help would be great.

Set the perms for the Exchange virtual dirs thru the ESM when in Exchange 2000, setting them in IIS won't hold. In2003 that changes, you set them thru the IIS admin program...

Kidego,

Thanks for the quick reponse.  That certainly sounds like the reason.  I am maybe being really stupid but can you tell me where in the ESM that is set?  I have had a look through it and can't see anything obvious?

Many thanks,

It's under the Protocols container, HTTP, Exchange Virtual Server. you'll recognize it when you get there :)

Got it - and tested OK.  Many thanks - that will save me some worry while I am away.

All the best.
