OWA WITH SSL Configuration Error

Posted on 2004-09-13

This is my query:-

I want to be able to change the password in OWA.

I configured in IIS Manager the Iisadmpwd application Name under Default Web Site and also configured in the registry key for MSExchangeWEB which was hiding the Change Button Value.  I made the Change Button appear in OWA.

However when I now go into OWA, under Options, then Change Password.

I see the Change Password properties page fine:-

Outlook Web Access
for Exchange 2003
Domain      Domain Name
Account     User ID
Old password  
New password  
Confirm new password  

Once I have entered the new password and press OK.  I get another box which appears with an error code:-

Outlook Web Access
for Exchange 2003

Error number: -2147022675


I am not sure if I have missed something in IIS Manager for this to not run successfully.

This is a matter of urgency and any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you

I have done everything on the second link, however after doing that it has reported the error when pressing ok on change password in OWA

This is the error reported:-

Outlook Web Access
for Exchange 2003

Error number: -2147022675


I will delete the Virtual Directory and re-create it to see if that makes any difference.

I will let you know what the feedback is once done.

Here is a patch for this, as well as make cretain in ADUC / user preoperties, that the user is allowed to change passwords and that the change password on next logon is NOT ticked;EN-US;833734
