Exchange 2003 OWA Service Unavailable
Posted on 2009-02-24
Good afternoon everyone. I am having some difficulties trying to get OWA to work! Here is the scenario; Windows 2003 R2 Server, Exchange 2003 Server. Both are completely up-to-date as far as patches/SP's etc. The Exchange 2003 install is a month old, prior to Exchange being installed Novell Groupwise was on this particular server, but Groupwise was scrapped & Exchange was implemented. I cannot browse my Public folder via MS Outlook or the ESM. I have seen multiple posts all over the place pertaining to this type of issue. The Event ID's & such never match up to my particular problem though. The Event ID's in my System log pertiain to the the Default App pool & the Exchange App pool's being stopped due to multiple internal errors. The Event ID's that are associated with those errors are 1002 & 1039 W3SVC errors. If I try & view the "PF" properties via ESM then I get an ESM error saying the HTTP service used by the Public Folders is not available, possible causes are that the Public stores are not mounted and the Information Store service is not running. ID no: c1030af3 ESM. Something is definetaly going on with my App pools but I have no clue what it causing this! I have looked & looked. Any help would be much appreciated. Is there anyway to just remove IIS & then re-add it, via windows components, or would that totally hose OWA in the processes? Thanks again.
