Outlook Web Access stopped working

SBS 2003: I noticed this morning that OWA has stopped working. It was OK last week, now I get a 404 error.

The default website seems to be working OK. I logged into another server that I administer and compared all the settings. Everything is identical. I've re-run the ICW and restarted all the relevant services.

Anyone got any ideas?

You'll need to provide some more info such as the IPCONFIG /ALL and the exported list of Web Sites in IIS Manager (Open IIS Manager > Web Sites and right click in the right panel and select "export list").

You can also just troubleshoot this by following the instructions in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/327843

Also, please advise if the Monitoring & Reporting and Backup screens are working properly in the Server Management Console.

I've found the problem, and it was of my own making. Because the main website is being replaced, last week I assigned a new virtual directory to handle requests made to the default website. I didn't realise that this would also hijack requests to the Exchange Virtual Directory.

So i've put it back how it was, and put a page in the default website to redirect traffic to the new website. OWA now works once more.

I've awarded the points anyway. Thanks for your input.
