SBS2008 http://companyweb does not redirect to http://companyweb/default.aspx

OS: WIndows SBS 2008

I am not aware of any changes that were recently made to this server, but all of a sudden http://companyweb is not forwarding to http://companyweb/default.aspx.

Users who try to browse to http://companyweb are getting a 404 not found error, however, if you manually append the default.aspx the page loads perfectly.  I've checked to make sure ASP pages are allowed, I've checked rights on the .net directory.  I've checked ports, etc all seem to be working, I've rebooted the server, the issue still exists. It's really bizarre.

Any suggestions?

Click on CompanyWeb Virtual Directory
In the middle pane look for default document, make syre that default.aspx is at the top, if not on the right side pane you will find the option to move it up.
Check and see if this helps!!


I have already tried this, no avail
There ended up being several issues with IIS, I ended up just ripping out sharepoint and reinstalling - works beautifully now.
