I have a client that is using OMA and it was working great until he needed to install a ERp program to his SBS2003 server

THis program had changed the default site port to 8110, by doing this OMA doesn't work.  Port 80 is listed below the port 8110 in the advanced section of the default web site, but on 127.0.0.1 not "default"  i have tried changing that ip to the server ip but nothing, i have also put in a header on port 80 of the netbios name and that didnt work either.

How do i move exchange off of that web site? or if any one has any other ideas to get it working?

i put the "default back to port 80 it work great. Also i have a third party SSL installed on the default site.

To add another OWA site, go into Exchange System Manager -> Servers/Protocols/HTTP , and add another Virtual Server.  When it's added, you can right-click to add OMA, etc.  But note that you don't need another exchange VDir in this Virtual server, because it becomes 'dedicated' to OWA.

Or, just create another Site in IIS Manager.  Then you can right-click each VDir and export it to a file.  Then import the VDirs from file to the new site.

Note that you can't create an Exchange VDir for OWA manually in IIS Manager because there are some hidden properties.

The problem is that you shouldn't have installed the ERP software on the default web site.  Instead, install it on a new virtual site configured to use port 8110.  You should NOT add another virtual server as LeeDerbyshire suggests above because it will break the SBS's configuration wizards.  

The fact is that its not just OMA that you've broken with the ERP software, you've also broken the Monitoring/Reporting site, the Backup Page in the Server Management Console, Outlook Web Access, and most importantly, Remote Web Workplace.  All of these run off the default site and need to be kept as originally configured.

Not all of those are broken becuase we use OWA, and Remote Web Workplace thru SSL, but the others are not working.  Ill talk to there ERP Consultant to see if we can move it to another Virtual server.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

They aren't broken yet... but they will be if you try to move them.  The reason that OWA and RWW still work is that those use port 443 over SSL.  But I wonder if the Server Management Console sites (monitoring & backup) are working?

I appreciate you closing out the question, but am a bit curious about why you gave a "B" grade which would indicate that my answer wasn't complete.  Yet, you did exactly what I suggested to fix the problem.
