I was contracted into a company and found that they are running Small Business Server 03 w/ exchange 03. Everything works fine, except OWA 03. After allot of research I found it was because there is no M: drive created or mapped. Is there a way to create this drive with out reinstalling Exchange? A repair or some tool or other option then reinstalling exchange?

Thanks,
Josef

In Exchange 2003 the M: drive doesn't exist (thankfully). I don't think that is the cause of the problem.

I would go through this article at MS to ensure that the OWA virtual folders are set correctly.

You can also reinstall Exchange on top of the existing install. That will reset many settings back to the default. Simply insert the CD and choose "reinstall" from the options.

I'll give this a shot Simon, after reading Microtech's information, I figured that my hunch was wrong. I'll let you know. Thanks for the article I've been searching for about 4 hours for something like that.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

The article is very new - I don't think Google has picked it up yet.
