A little bit of history before the problem. On Wednesday morning, our Exchange 2003 Ent server locked up causing one of the information stores to become corrupt. We contacted Microsoft for assistance and we were able to restore functionality to the Exchange server, but because the server locked up again on us we decided to move to new hardware. Microsoft was able to do the /disaster recovery option to move the Exchange data to the new hardware. The Exchange site now resides on new hardware and we are up and running again.
The problem: For some unknown reason, OWA is not working on the new server. When I attempt to goto http://localhost/exchange
I receive a 404 - File or directory not found. I need some assistance from the community to start troubleshooting this issue.
When I look under the Exchsrvr directory, I do see the Exchweb and OMA folders. In IIS, under the default website I do see the Exchange, exchange-oma, ExchWeb, Microsoft-Server-ActiveSyn
c, OMA and Public sites. It seems the perhaps the local path to BackOfficeStorage isn't getting resolved (I am guessing)? I can open up a webpage to http://localhost/oma
. The difference being that the OMA website has an actual directory in the "local path" field instead of0 \\.\BackOfficeStorage\....
The server is Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise SP2. It is not a domain controller. All other functionality seems ok with the server such as emails, calendar, public folders. There is only one Exchange server in the site and OWA is accessed from the outside world via ISA 2006.
I appreciate any help given. Thanks in advance.
Edit: Its 1:22am here central time. I'm going to bed now but I will check on this in the morning.
