I have recently upgraded to Exch07 from Exch03. One of the changes og this upgrade seems to be a change in the OWA address from /Exchange to /OWA. This has caused issues with the link on our web page. Is it possible to change the redirection and if so is that done through the HTTP redirect section of IIS 7.

You can use a redirection to point to the new URL.

Create a website with the old name and redirect it to the new URL.

You should change also your links on your website of course...

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ok, I understand....

No idea about this CMS, but as it is a CMS system, so it should be easy, otherwise it is a very bad CMS...

As far as the CMS links are concerned, I used to use one similiar a few years back. On the site, if you put in www.yourdomain.com/admin (or something like this) it will allow you to log in as the admin. From here, you can access the "back end" of the site and poke around a bit until you find the place to edit the links.

The /exchange variant should still work. It is there for co-existence.
If it is not there then you can soon add it using Powershell.

New-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion:"Exchange2003or2000" -Name "Exchange" -WebSite "Default Web Site" -VirtualDirectoryType:Mailboxes

Thnks for all comments. Still no luck with the however. Did manage to crate new link on webpage to /owa directory which works but original is still there and still broken. Simon, I typed i the syntax you provided and ended up with a doub'e arrow prompt and that was it so i dont know it that worked or not. There is an exchange directory in the default web site on iis though.
Thanks again.

That shouldn't have happened if you use the Exchange Management Shell. It may well have given you an error, but that is about it.
If the exchange directory already exists then you didn't need my command. You should be able to go to http://server/exchange and enter credentials and be redirected to the correct location.
