Exchange 2003 virtual directory settings

Hi again guys,


I accidently changed the default url for all my exchange 2003 server virtual directory locations by setting a redirection url on the top level default site which filtered down to ALL my exchange sites, so now when I go www.mydomain.com/owa or www.mydomain.com/exchange etc, I get redirected to something I set elsewhere.  Now my thoughts on trying to figure what the initial setup was to return it to operation again was to install exchange 2003 onto another computer and copy the virtual directory location settings, but I don't have the time.  So can someone who understands my plight help me out with this please?  I promise not to do it again.  ;)

Its takes a few minutes to fix itself.. so be patient.

Microsoft instructions for resetting everything are these:

Even easier, delete a few things and then restart a service, takes about five minutes.

This change happened a few weeks ago.  I'm conerned that my backup and restore will take me to the same situation I am in currently.

Mine is a three click solution, but if there is no backup from the date you need listed in the box, then sembee's solution is what you are looking for.
