SBS 2008 is behaving poorly
Posted on 2010-08-24
First of all - i know this question may sounds a bit general, since we don't have lot's of info, so accept my apology for that.
A new customer has contacted us and said that his Exch 2007 OWA has stopped working.
At first glance, it seems that there's a problem with the IIS, which doesn't open any local website, but i assume there's more to it.
The event logs are FULL of red events, i don't even see the point in publishing them here, because there are sp many --different- ones regarding all kind of matters.
When we tried to run the the internet address wizard (Set up your internet address) from the Windows SBS console, we're receiving an error that the wizard has stopped working on the 2nd task (Exchange e-mail setup), and the whole SBS console is closed.
It's important to add that the server was without Antivirus for more than 3 months..
The steps we took so far:
1. Backup and clear the event logs, all of them.
2. cmd --> IISRESET
We're trying to avoid re-installation of the server if it's not absolutely necessary.
How would you approach such a poor situation? I would appreciate a detailed answer as possible with action items, since we're almost out-of-time with this so called customer..
Big Thx in advance,
