We are having a issue with OWA.  Out of the blue it just stops working.  Web page cannot be displayed.  

Things i have done to resolve it.

Restart IIS
Restart application pool
recycle them

The only thing that i have found to fix the issue is restart the server.

There has to be some other way without restarting the server to fix this issue.

I have checked system logs with no luck of finding anything.

Thanks

-Patrick



There must be a service or something failing then stopping

how heavy is your load?

Unless you got a handful connection to the OWA server at the same time, i don see it will overload the server.

does your database remain mounted when it fails? I have seen this and needed to do a defrag and consistance check of the exchange database to fix the issue.

if internal email, i.e. outlook is still working, it should be good. (no db issues)

one thought is when your OWA is down, can you get it via http://<IP>/exchange?

i wonder issit because your DNS gone wrong or something else.

Also any other configuration options on the app pool through IIS?  Or to the actual website?

Someone selected the SSL cert?  Expiring SSL cert will show expiration date, but if the SSL is invalid all together, it can stop the website from working.
