I have a 2 server environment both running Server 2003, one is domain controller/dns server and the other is a mail server running Exchange 2003 sp2. Recently the owner got an iphone and I
cannot get it to sync with exchange I get errors, when i got to mydomain/oma in a web browser the login prompt comes up and lets me login but then displays a oma runtime error page. and everytime i try to connect my servers event viewer lists the following errors:

ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 Event ID 1334

An unhandled exception occurred and the process was terminated.

Application ID: /LM/W3SVC/1/root/OMA

Process ID: 4292

Exception: System.NullReferenceException

Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

StackTrace:    at Microsoft.Exchange.OMA.UserInterface.Global.Finalize()


NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting event ID 5000

EventType clr20r3, P1 w3wp.exe, P2 6.0.3790.3959, P3 45d6968e, P4 microsoft.exchange.oma.userinterface, P5, P6 430e745e, P7 463, P8 0, P9 system.nullreferenceexception, P10 NIL.

I have read some older solutions says exchange didnt support asp.net 2.0 but there is no option for me to let oma use v1.1. so I am not sure where to go at this point. any directional help would be appreciated.

ActiveSync is not an asp.net 2.0 application, it is 1.1.
Therefore I would suspect that one or more of the virtual directories have the wrong version set.
