Hi, I have changed my NT4 domain to a mixed mode NT4/2003 and Exchange5.5/2003,

We have just installed the first Exchange2003 std server and can not workout how to get OWA installed, with 5.5 it was a seperate setup, but its combined with the 2003 setup as far as I can tell, but no matter what options I take, I can not seem to get the exchange virtual server details populated in IIS.

Where have I gone wrong?

regards

Nothing to install. It is part of the Exchange install.
If the Exchange virtual directories haven't been created then the Exchange install probably hasn't completed properly.
Presuming that you met the requirements I would run the install again - choose reinstall.

I tried that, but it seems the same

in IIS, the path specified for virtual server "exchange" = \\.\BackOfficeStorage\emaildomainname.com\MBX

Thats the correct path.
Exchange sorts the rest out.
Have you actually tried it?
On the server:
http://localhost/exchange

I was looking for the asp files etc, as in the 5.5v of owa.....

I moved my mailbox to the new server, and tried both http://server/exchange and http://server/exchange/username from the local server, whilst it did prompt me for user/pass (with no actual login screen) it just  returned 404.

I guess at this stage my answer is really answered? as it seems OWA is there, just not working for me, any pointers / ideas before I close this question and apply the points ?

OWA on Exchange 2003 is a lot more complex than 5.5 - for example you cannot just move it to another server or install it seperatly.

If you want a form, then you need to put an SSL certificate on to the default web site, then enable forms based authentication. This is actually my prefered way of configuring Exchange as it increases security and gives the users a pointer as to what to enter.

Two things to check.
On the exchange virtual directories, check the authentication in IIS Manager.  /exchange /exchweb /public and /exadmin
It should be basic and integrated ONLY.
In addition /exchweb should have anonymous as well.

Next, when you are prompted for authentication, enter it in the format
domain\username
Followed by the password.

Make sure there are no red crosses over any of the Exchange components in IIS Manager.
