OWA 2003 not working because of DNS issue
Posted on 2004-09-27
I've got an Exchange 2003 server running with OWA on that server, one server environment, 95 mailboxes. I had a DNS issue on Friday which could be the root of the issue but I don't know at this point. That day the active DNS file was overwritten by a 0KB file, I looked into the backup and restored a 13KB file. DNS is running on a separate Win2K server in the same W2K domain. No problems with anything Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Even Friday when I had the issue with DNS I was able to get to OWA. This morning sometime OWA stopped working. I cannot get to OWA through anything but IP Address at this point. I have SSL setup so I should be able to get to it via https://mail.mydomain.com I also should be able to get to it through servername/exchange but neither are working which tells me its a DNS issue. I looked into the DNS file in detail and have compared, the DNS file is accurate. Could anyone tell me where to look next? Is there something I'm not looking at?
Thanks in advance
