Hi All

I am moving our exchange org (server1) to a second server (server2) in the same administrative group as i plan to do maintenance on server1 as we have had issues with it. I would like to know how do we setup OWA for the new server? Are there any steps i should be following as the server1 will probably be reinstalled so i will need a new home for OWA.

Can you provide more information as to which type of Exchange Server you will be using? I.e. Exchange 2003/7?

If it's 2003, OWA is enabled by default.
You will need to import the certificate to the new server. You can also simply that by exporting the current certificate on Server1 and then reimporting to Server2.

If it's Exchange 2007 you will need to install the CAS role on the new server. One the CAS role is installed, you can then import the certificate in EMS by using this command - "Import-exchangecertificate path <full path to cert file>"

OWA is installed by default with the CAS role installed.

Don't forget to forward the port(s) to the new server. E.g. TCP 443.

Oh, and Exchange will not install, (exchange 2003 and exchange CAS role), without the IIS role installed.
You will find out if you are missing any features when you run setup. THe prerequisites will assist in that.
