We have an OWA environment of Windows 2003 R2 SP2 and Exchange 2003 Sp2.  We use a front-end to back-end server configuration for OWA. We use SSL

The problem I am seeing is  a user goes to http:\\xx.xxxx.com\exchange and then gets redirected to https:\\owa.xxxx.com\exchange.  They type there username and password and then they receive the following page "The specified request cannot be executed from current Application Pool".

If the user hits refresh their OWA mailbox page then loads.

Sounds like a problem with IIS.

I also should mention the http:\\xx.xxxx.com\exchange page resides on a different server. The user goes there first and is then redirected to the exchange server at https:\\owa.riso.com\exchange

Have you verified which server is generating the error?

That is a good question...I don't know if it the front-end or the back-end.  Is there a way to check?

There should be something in the web site logs (not the system logs) that shows the error.

I checked all the OWA virtual directories and they are all set to the ExchangeApplicationPool.  They only one which was not was the "Default Site".  I set the Default Site to ExchangeApplicationPool and I no longer get The specified request cannot be executed from current Application Pool message after a user log in.

However now I receive HTTP 1.1/500 server error when users log into OWA.  If the user hit reload after getting that message the maibox then loads up.  Same symptoms different error now.

You are looking for the error code to confirm which server is generating the message.
You may also get something more from Internet Explorer by disabling show friendly http error messages.

I searched the logs and i did not find anything.  the http 1.1/500 error is so generic I am having a hard time narrowing down the cause.

Did you try disabling show friendly http error messages to see if anything more helpful was shown?
