OWA on Exchange 2003 displays as DOS file list

Our intranet was not displaying ASP pages and the errr returned was:

ASP error 0131 The include file <%filename.ext%> cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory. /<%path%>/<%filename.ext%>, line <%number%>

I searched Microsoft KB and found this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;332117&Product=iis60

Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
Double-click your computer name in the left pane, and then double-click Web Sites.
Locate the Web site and directory that houses the ASP application.
Right-click the application site or directory, and then click Properties.
Select Home Directory, and then click Configuration.
Click Options, and then click to select the Enable Parent Paths check box.
Click OK two times.

I followed the instructions and got the ASP pages to work. However now, when accessing OWA, I enter a username and password, but get a directory listing instead of the GUI interface. I can also navigate to other users' mailboxes without authentication.

I turned off enable parent paths, but it did not correct the issue.

What can I do now?

A couple of things it could be.
Authetication configuration could be wrong.
Check the Exchange virtual directories in IIS manager.
/exchange
/exchweb
/public
/exadmin
They should all be integrated and basic authentication ONLY.
In addition /exchweb should have anonymous access. No other directory should have anon access.

What is the host OS? Windows 2000 or 2003? Has someone run the IIS Lockdown tool on this machine?

If you haven't already then I would consider reinstalling Exchange. By this I mean putting the Exchange CD in and choosing the reinstall option. This will not harm the data but will reset some of the standard stuff.

I was able to use metaedit and cleanup IIS metabase. I needed to repoint OWA to the correct location.

Exchange 2003? Quickest way is to run install again. Bung in the CD and choose the "reinstall" option and it will fix it all up for you.
