IIS trouble, like to reinstall companyweb, OWA, etc....

After installing small business 2003 premium, it started that my company web was totally gone?? I started to turn the the IIS settings and now the trouble is complete also OWA does not want to log in anymore. OWA does not recognise the users/passwords anymore? Even when I logon on the server with https://localhost/exchange.

I like to restore all webservices to their factory settings. Is there any possibility without installing?

If I start reinstalling which parts of do I have to reinstall?? Can I reinstall/repair exchange without damaging my user files??

Did you reìnstall IIS after insalling Exchange with OWA?? If so, your best option is to do a reìnstall of the latest SP (SP1 for Exchange), or reinstall Exchange from the SBS CD. User files will not be damaged because only the server files are being uopdated, not user data..

After that, you can set back the files that were in the c:/inetpub/wwwroot, this shoudl do the trick...
