Suddenly not able to connecto to OWA

Just overnight I cannot connect to the OWA login screen. My IP resolves successfully, the HTTP redirect is working but I get a "cannot display the webpage". The last thing I did was apply and new SAN certificate. I have done this before and everything installed fine. Even locally on the server I cannot bring up the page. When I open IIS I can click on browse the website for OWA but when I attempt to login I get the same "cannot display webpage" message.

Ok, I think I found where I missed a step. I did not link the HTTPS binding to the SSL certificate. I now can get to the OWA login.

BUT I had already followed your instruction to remove and re-add the owa virtual directory. Now when I open up the exchange console and go to Server Config->Client Access->OWA->properties an error comes up that it could not find the "owa (default web site)"

I did create the OWA virtual directory and it is listed after the get- cmdlet.

Yes but they are jibberish to me.
I attached the latest log file if it helps.

FYI. My exchange and POP accounts work fine.

It looks like you are being redirected somewhere else after logging in, but it's hard to tell where.  After you type https://servername/owa in you browser address bar, you will be redirected to the login page, so the address in the address bar will change slightly (to the .aspx page that is the logon page), but after you have logged in, the address should revert to https://servername/owa .  In your case, something may have changed.  Has the protocol (https) or the servername part changed?  Maybe it no longer has /owa on the end?

I ran the "set-owavirtualdirectory" cmdlet and rebooted the server. Everything works once again. I just had to make some minor changes to the OWA settings back the way I had them.
