New to supporting a client who has two Front End servers and three Back End.  Users on two of the BE servers are working fine, but users on one of BE servers can't login to OWA.  The prompt comes up, they put in their credentials and then receive the HTTP 500 error.  All the boxes are Windows 2003 SP2 and Exchange 2003 SP2.  On the affected box I can't browse to the default website or to the exchange website.  I have restarted IIS, still no go.  Any ideas???

If the above link didn't help.

Try to use the FE
Run Exchange best practice analyzer tool, I had similar problem but on the FE and it was permissions and EPA pointed it out.

First thing I would check is that the patch level on the frontends is the same or higher than the backend that is not working.

Compare the version numbers of \exchsrvr\exchweb

If you look in the example below, the highest is 6.5.7651.60


C:\Exchsrvr\exchweb>dir
 Volume in drive E is Exchange
 Volume Serial Number is 0000-0000

 Directory of C:\Exchsrvr\exchweb

06/12/2006  13:37    <DIR>          .
