Hi there
Not sure what has happened, but I no longer get form-based authentication. Instead I get the windows logon box.
I am runing Exchange 2007 SP1 CAS role on a Windows 2008 server with IIS 7. I need assistance to check where it has gone wrong.

There is very little that can go wrong.
FBA is either on or off, but is only available when using SSL.

You could turn it off then run IISRESET and turn it back on again. That will sometimes make it appear again.

Go to Sevrer Config -> Client Aceess -> OWA -.Properties. second tab and see whether FBA is selected.

what are the defualt authentication methods for the OWA virt dir in IIS 7? I have just basic enabled.

I have tried turning it off in the Exchange console and turning it on, but no change.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If in case form-based authentication is selected at the following location:
Sevrer Config -> Client Aceess -> OWA -.Properties. second tab

Try diabling the form-based authentication, restarting IIS and then re-enable the form-based authentication at the above specified location and then again restart IIS and try browsing OWA
