Exchange Back-end server dropping the IIS connection to the Front-end server
Posted on 2006-06-17
We currently 2 exchange servers one running win 2000 O.S. with exchange 2003 (front-end) and the other win 2003 ENT running the exchange 2003 (back-end).
The problem is that it is dropping the Webmail (OWA) connection; this means that Webmail (OWA) can not be accessed at all, internally or externally .
but all the services are running non have failed it just does not allow to access to the Webmail (OWA). to currently fix this problem that keeps reoccurring about the same time everyday. I run the IISRESET on the Back-end server and it fixes the problem for a bit and then it goes down again.
The other things that it is doing are:
Can not get to the OMA page and or any page that is set up on the front-end server to test if IIS failed or not.
When trying to access the exchange system manager on the both servers we receive an error that reads:
[“Access is Denied”
ID no: c00700005
Exchange system manager.]
The only way we have found to fix this is to reboot the server.
This problem also make adding users or modifying exchange in any way impossible.
Any feedback would be appreciated
Thank you, and God bless
