I've been asked to remove this page without bringing down the server.  How do I go about this and can it be done?   Thanks in advance!

You can certainly remove it, but what do you want to replace it with?  If you want an empty page, just replace the existing Default.asp file with an empty one.

A very simple way is to delete (or rename) the iisstart.htm file in your wwwroot directory.

You can also go into the IIS Manager and manipulate your default web site -- just remember that some stuff (like webmail) falls under the default site as well.

We do utilize OWA.  So is it possible to remove the "Under Construction" and just have a blank page?

Yes, you can have a blank page.  Look at the properties of the Default Web Site in your IIS Manager, and look at the list of default documents.  Note which one is at the top of the list, and replace it on the disk with an empty file (after backing up the original).
