I am running Exchange 2003 on a Windows 2003 Server box. Last week one of my co-workers deleted the Default Web Site in IIS. We are trying to get the Microsoft Direct Push and OWA, Exchange ActiveSync, etc working. I have read that this is impossible with out this Default Web Site that Exchange creates when installed? Is this correct? I need to get that site back now.
I have followed the steps in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883380
to no avail. I heard from someone else say that I could just reinstall Exchange over the top of my current install (sort of repairing) the installation. This is outlined in this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/497127b0-7283-4c69-9a34-27185978bb07.aspx
My question is, if I follow the procedure in the article above, will it delete my stores? I am confident that I have a backup just in case it destroys it, but will it delete, corrupt, overwrite my current stores? I am scheduled to do this today so please get back to me soon. Thanks for the help.
