A couple days after installing RSA Auth Agent 5.3 for IIS w/o enabling or configuring it on my Exch2k7 64bit Win2k3 Stnd Server, all IIS sites including OWA and the default site produce 'Service Unavailable' and I received these events below and my IIS is reporting Service Unavailable for OWA and other related IIS virtual directories.

I tried installing .NET 3.5 SP1 on my Exch2k7 box and I still receive 'service unavailable'.  Previous step was reinstalling the Exch2k7 Client Access role, which didn't help.

ANY IDEAS?

I tried this potential solution and it didn't resolve my issue:

I was able to resolve my specific issue by:

1. Right click on IIS Website folder and choose properties | Services | swtich to isolated mode
2. Under same properties | ISAPIFilters | Remove RSA Filter
3. Switch IIS back to non isolated mode/worker process isolation mode by check mark out

NOTE: This likely resulted from a 32bit RSA Auth Agent instead of 64bit version.
