Hi guys,

This afternoon I was trying to update my ssl certificate on my exchange 2007 box on an sbs 2008 box

I also installed Trend micro worry free business 6.0

after I did this I found that I couldn't access outlook web access and received a 404 error

my c:\inetpub\wwwroot\owa folder is missing

not sure what happened, is there any way i can re-enable OWA?

Thanks guys

That won't work on SBS.

Did you use the Wizard in the SBS Console to replace the certificate?

"my c:\inetpub\wwwroot\owa folder is missing"
this won't exist anyway.

In Internet Information Services manager expand websites and then SBS Web Applications is there an OWA virtual directory?

If so then I wouldn't perform the commands just yet to remove them.

Run the fix my network wizard what does it come back with: http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/archive/2008/11/26/introduction-to-the-fix-my-network-wizard-fncw.aspx

if that doesn't work then please see this guide for repairing the SBS Client Access Role: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd767439(WS.10,printer).aspx

this is the correct way to remove/repair the exchange virtual directories in SBS

Can I ask which answer actually worked for you because the command given in the first post WILL NOT work in SBS because the virtual directories do not exist in the default locatio.
