Exchange 2003 Standard OWA Access

I have a 2003 server running as my PCD, i also have exchange on it.  I can not get to web access with it.  I tired using https://servername/exchange and https://172.16.1.100/exchange but they do not work. (Internally, so i am not eaven tring from the outside yet)  Is there anywhere to turn on or off OWA access?

Check your server's Application and System Logs in the Event Viewer.
Please post any messages (including event ID) related to Exchange and W3SVC (Web Server).

OWA should work out of the box.
What happens when you try to access it?
Is this full product or SBS?

Are the web services running? Is the web site stopped in IIS Manager?

Have you run the Exchange Best Practises tool to ensure that nothing is wrong with the server?

Standard 2003 server, standard 2003 Exchange.  
All web services are running and IIS is running.

error: page can not be displayed
running Exchange Best Practises now.

SystemPages set too high,
SMTP Performance warning,  (i have a Pix that slowes me down)
Virtual Memory Warning,

Thats about it

On the error, page cannot be displayed, does it say anything else?
If you turn off show friendly http error messages, does that show you anything of interest?

Are you using SSL, even a self generated SSL certificate?

have not setup ssl yet.  i have not got that far.  Usualy i do but i can not get it to respond. Exchange work fine other than this.  below is a copy of the error.


  Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
   
   Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.
 
   What you can try:
     Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.  
 
     Retype the address.  
 
     Go back to the previous page.

Does the root of the site work?

http://server/ 

You should get the IIS welcome page.

Thats a pity. I was expecting you to say no.

Browse to http://server/exchweb/img/logo2.gif

Do you get an odd looking OWA logo ?

that did not work on my server, and my server does work but is SBS server
Mestha

You said earlier it was a standard server. Now you say its an SBS. Which is it?

If it is SBS, then you have run the Connect to the Internet and email wizard to enable OWA ?

When you installed Windows Small Business Server, did you run the server configuration wizard right after installing the OS or install Exchange manually?

Mestha:  i just stated that i tried that same test on my server (SBS) but on the one with the problem it is Standard with Exchange install.  So IT is Standard 2003 R2

I konw there is no "wizzard with standard"  thats why i am looking for a place to ensure it is on.

Ok.  I apologize.  I saw both Standard and SBS thrown around so I wanted to make sure.

Have you checked the Event Log yet (under Application and System) to see if any Exchange-related errors have been posted?

Also, try checking the Exchange configuration to make sure OWA is turned on.

where can i check the exchang config to be sure it is on?
