IIS deleted; will restore from backup work or is reinstall required for IIS & Exchange for OWA links reestablished?
Posted on 2006-06-24
A certificate manager installation went ugly and MS deleted IIS (?). We needed that for OWA. I've been reading that there are 6 virtual directories required for the Exchange/OWA link...where are these located? In the Exchsrvr directory? I've got /exchweb and /OMA remaining, and /Exadmin, /Public, /Exchange, and /Microsoft-Server-Active-Sync are gone...unless these are supposed to be under the IIS structure.
Has anyone out there successfully used a backup to restore IIS in these circumstances, or is the only way to reinstall IIS and Exchange? Are there any gotchas in this process that you can share?
Thanks in advance.
