Ok, have 2008 server 64bit with exchange 2007 running on it. its been running fine.  I needed to install sql 2005 on it with reporting services.  so i enabled all the iis 6.0 stuff in the role manager, also need to  force IIS to use asp.net 2.0 32 bit. so i followed

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894435 

but now OWA isn't working. pretty sure its related to asp.net.  just not sure how to start looking..

thanks

You could try changing back to the old version of ASP.net to verify.  I dont have a 2008 box in front of me, but on 2003 it was...

1) Go to IIS, select the domain.
2) Right click on domain and select properties.
3) Click on the tab ASP.NET.
4) In the field ASP.NET version, select the desired version.
5) Click on Apply to change the settings.

500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

if i try to run from IIS 7.0  i get this

Server Error in Application "DEFAULT WEB SITE"Internet Information Services 7.0

Error Summary
HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error
Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\owa\auth\owaauth.dll" failed Detailed Error InformationModule IIS Web Core
Notification Unknown
Handler StaticFile
Error Code 0x800700c1
Requested URL http://localhost:80/ 
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot
Logon Method Not yet determined
Logon User Not yet determined
 Most likely causes:
IIS received the request; however, an internal error occurred during the processing of the request. The root cause of this error depends on which module handles the request and what was happening in the worker process when this error occurred.
IIS was not able to access the web.config file for the Web site or application. This can occur if the NTFS permissions are set incorrectly.
IIS was not able to process configuration for the Web site or application.
The authenticated user does not have permission to use this DLL.
The request is mapped to a managed handler but the .NET Extensibility Feature is not installed.
 Things you can try:
Ensure that the NTFS permissions for the web.config file are correct and allow access to the Web server's machine account.
Check the event logs to see if any additional information was logged.
Verify the permissions for the DLL.
Install the .NET Extensibility feature if the request is mapped to a managed handler.
Create a tracing rule to track failed requests for this HTTP status code. For more information about creating a tracing rule for failed requests, click here.
 Links and More InformationThis error means that there was a problem while processing the request. The request was received by the Web server, but during processing a fatal error occurred, causing the 500 error.

That's a little better!  ... Can you check to make sure you are using .net framework version v2.0.50727(64-bit)

You should also check your ISAPI Filters specifically the bitness to find out what it is set to run:
CSCRIPT %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs GET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64

It is an issue because of a misconfigured  64bit ISAPI DLL, now I am pretty sure that you it is the bitness, it's just a matter of which one to set it to. I know there is a MS KB doc on which one to set it to, but I am not able to remember which one..sorry

yeah you have to use either 32-bit or 64-bit you just can't run both modes at the same time...hence the reason OWA stopped working on you.
