Best method to move/rename Exchange OWA/ActiveSync 2007 to its own virtual host in stead of using the 'Default Web Site'


Recently we have installed a new Exchange 2007 SP1 installation and OWA 2007 on a new Windows 2008 server. The default 'Default Web Site' in IIS7 was used for OWA/Active Sync and everything works as it should..

Nowdays there is the need to expand the server with Sharepoint on SSL on a separate virtual name host and maybe later the default company website and a Terminal Server (Web) Gateway...

In the end the main Company website should also be the default site for the ip address that is being used..

Is it possible to move/rename the 'Default Web Site' OWA to its own virtual (name) host?
What should be the best method?

thnx in advance.

You can setup OWA on to another web site, but you need to leave the virtual directories where they are as well.
Furthermore Outlook Anywhere only works on the default web site, it is not supported being used elsewhere.

I would leave OWA where it is. A company web site should be elsewhere, not on the Exchange server. You don't want to mix anonymous and authenticated traffic on the same server, that is a major security risk.
