Enable OWA on only one of two exchange 2003 servers
Posted on 2004-09-21
We have two 2003 Exchange servers running on 2000 Domain in native mode.
Previously we ran 5.5 exch on two servers and only one had OWA enabled. With this previous setup everyone in the organisation could access the OWA feature, even those who had a mailbox stored on the server without OWA enabled.
Since our recent upgrade to Exchange 2003 the OWA works for mailboxes that are stored on one mail server but only on the other by automatically redirecting the url. This is frustrating as 5.5 OWA could resolve mailboxes on either server whilst only being installed on one.
We have seen an option that requires an Exchange front server but this is riddiculous as this means purchasing another license / hardware etc.
Anyone else had this trouble before???
