Outlook Web Access Does not display correctly

Hi All,

I have recently upgraded our server to a SBS 2008 box.  I have now noticed that OWA does not display correctly and no links within in it will work.

Has any one got any ideas?

Right now this is begining to make sence, I can see the 8.1.340.0 folder but all the folders under themes are empty other than a premium.css file.
This explains why the image wont load... I just now have the issue of getting install correctly.

Open IIS and check under exchsvr that script is allowed to execute

Try opening one of the missing images directly by typing on its URL.  For example, if you have rollup 6, it will be

https://servername/owa/8.1.340.0/themes/base/inbox.gif

If you don't have rollup 6, you will need to view the page source in IE, and search for 'inbox.gif', and use the different folder name that you find there.

If you type in the URL, can you see the image?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Well the plot thinkens.
When trying to make any change to the settings in IIS7 to any of the virtual sites in the SBS Web Applications web site i get the following error:
    There was an error while performing this operation.
     Details
      filename: \\?\BackupofficeStorage\{domain}\MBX\web.config
      error: cannot write configuration file
Also if I try to explore the folder i get the following error:
      The network path was not found
I think something may be a little pair shaped with this server *grin*

You will get that if you try to change some of the settings on the VDir named Exchange.  That is to be expected - the Exchange VDir is 'special', and you shouldn't attempt to change it in IIS Manager.  If you already have, then it is probably broken.  If it happens to VDirs other thatn the Exchange one, then something is certainly wrong.

OK Thats good to know, I have not been anywhere near IIS yet.  
I cannot find any of the Exchange virtual webs with the execute permission enabled, I have also checked a working server and they match.

I thought you said you'd try to change some of the settings in IIS7?  Unless I misunderstood what you said?  Anyway, try opening your latest IIS log file in Notepad.  Press F3, and search for Inbox.gif .  Can you find the entry?  What is written the log?

You have the right log entry, but some information is missing.  Is that the full line?  If so, the protocol result status is missing.  Can you have a look at the properties of the Default Web Site.  On the Web Site tab, click the Properties button near to the Enable Loggin checkbox.  On the Advanced tab, make sure that Protocol Status and Protocol Substatus are checked.  Save the changes.

Now, you will need to retry OWA again, to generate some new log entries.  Look near the end of the same file for a similar Inbox.gif entry.  There should be some numbers added near the end.  If they are there, can you paste the new logged line.

OK, we may have crossed wires, tis is on a SBS 2008 server, so we have Exchange 2007 & IIS 7.  All the OWA & Exchange virtual webs are hosted in there own web site called "SBS Web Applications".  As its IIS7 there is no properties options when right clicking on the web site or virtual sites.
I have however tried the page again and here is a complete section of the log between drafts.gif and Junkemail.gif.
The funny thing is no link  what so ever will work when logged in and no image loads at all.

You can see near the end of each line the number 404, which means 'Not Found'.  Can you see the folder named 8.1.340.0 underneath the OWA folder?

WOHOO!!!!
Fixed it.... I recalled that an update failed but I wasn't sure which, so I have just reinstalled  Exchange Rollup 6.
Thanks for your help with this, your advice has added me in finding the resolution.

It's possible that your rollup 6 didn't finish properly.  That is where the 8.1.340.0 folder comes from.

I had the same issue going from 8.1.375.2 to 8.1.393.1. After reading the above, I copied the scripts and images and it worked again as before.
Thanks for the pointer guys.
