I can no longer access default OWA from my internal network

Posted on 2008-09-30

I'm not sure what I did, but I can no longer access OWA from my local intranet anymore.  I get a 404 "Page Cannot be Displayed" from the browser as well as the server.  I reverted a couple changes in the  Default Web Site and then went back to check, and the OWA (exchange) site is no longer working.  I checked to make sure that the settings were all set back to default, and they are.  So, I'm confused.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

On the mail server, check the HTTPERR.LOG file (located at %windir%\system32\logfiles).

If this contains "Connection refused" recently, it's likely the nonpaged pool is getting close to exhausted.

Are you using McAfee on the mail server?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Another thing I noticed, the Public piece of OWA works, for the public calendars, They are still working, so its seems like it is just something with the default "Exchange" website that is loaded into the local instance of IIS 6
