OWA not working after rollup 6 for Exchange 2007

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
We have installed Roll Up 6 on our Exchange Server and now get nothing displayed when trying to open the OWA URL. We get redirected to https://ourdomain/owa/auth/logon.aspx?url=https://ourdomain/owa/&reason=0.  Using firefox works, logon screen is text only and layout is the OWA light layout.  Noticed the following in the updateowlog:

[09:25:29] * UpdateOwa.ps1: 11/02/2009 09:25:29
[09:25:32] Updating OWA on server ACORNMAIL2
[09:25:32] Finding OWA install path on the filesystem
[09:25:32] Updating OWA to version 8.1.340.0
[09:25:32] Copying files from 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\owa\Current' to 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\owa\8.1.340.0'
[09:25:32] Getting all Exchange 2007 OWA virtual directories
[09:25:33] There are no Exchange 2007 OWA virtual directories.  Aborting.

Hope you can help have half a dozen users on OWA who are now screaming down the phones at us.  Only option will be to uninstall - that will mean everyone screaming at us :)

Thanks for your help.
