Hi there,

In resurrecting a server that was filled with viruses and crashed, web access has been lost.  The login page comes up, but upon entering a username and password, the prompt goes away only to return.  There are no error messages at all.

It is SBS Server 2003.

Any ideas where to start?

First thing I would look at is authentication on the Exchange virtual directories:

/exchange
/exchweb
/public
/exadmin

All should be integrated and basic only.
/exchweb should also have anonymous

It might just be easier to put the Exchange 2003 CD in and run reinstall. No data will be lost but it will fix everything.

Simon.
