Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

k, sounds like all is ok with IIS but something is up with the Exchange virtual directory..you can rebuild them via Powershell

can you run this command and print the output?

Get-owavirtualDirectory

Was it working before this?

What's the last thing that was done with the server?  Updates?  Reinstalls?  Application installs?  If you look at the application pool and web page in IIS, does it show them as running?

Don't mean to barrage you with a slew of questions, but I find it's more efficient then one at a time.

Toegang geweigerd -- is that dutch? if so what does it mean? something similar to access denied?
haha i dont speak dutch at all sorry

try it with the correct case.. Get-OwaVirtualDirectory
copy and paste that, you are logged in as the admin right?

Are you looking at it from an XP machine or are you local on the exchange server?

Maybe this applies: http://exchangeshare.wordpress.com/2008/07/05/2147024891-access-is-denied-error-in-emc/

ok do this

start --> run and type dcomcnfg and hit enter
drill down through component services and then computers and right click on my computer
click on "Default Properties" tab up top
make sure the 2 boxes up top are checked
default auth level should be connect
default impersonation level should be identify
reboot and try the command again
