OWA Not Loading correctly

This is probably something that happens often but I have now got a problem which seems to have occured over the weekend.  It was working fine on Friday last week (09/06).  Now OWA is not loading correctly anymore.  It has been working fine using HTTPS and all was merry.

Now all I get is a load of broken image place holders and not a lot else.

I am running this all on an SBS 2003 box.  The certificate doesn't run out until 2007 and I have been through the "If you get the loading..." page on the Microsoft website and numerous other bits to see if I can get it back up and running.  I re-created the virtual directories by following the instructions that Microsoft give and they recreated fine but still it didn't work.

I am tempted to phone them, charge my company £200 and get them to sort it cos its a bit beyond me now - Any help would be greatly appreciated.

regards

Rowan

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Broken links in OWA is usually down to lack of permissions on the /exchweb virtual directory. Make sure that it has anonymous access ONLY enabled.

Hi

Thanks for all the replies - here is the info you need.

Single SBS Server 2003 - Its running as a Back-End Exchange server and utilises RPC over HTTP Proxy services for Outlook which works fine,  There is no front end and ISA 2004 is running on it.  ISA is not stopping traffic to and from Exchange and the Outside world because this was all working fine until yesterday.  

I have checked the ExchWeb folder - Anon only permissions are set but no one has touch IIS as its just little old me here!  

Tried it from internally and it is still the same issue - I haven't publish the server via ISA Server - I just make rules like the good old fashioned way.  I am not sure what the publishing wizard does but when I did try it, it seemed to make the same rules as I had done already and its worked fine like that since day one.

Thanks chaps!

Also I have followed the Microsoft article that talks about re-creating the virtual directories and it didn't help!

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
