I recently installed Exchange Server 2010 SP1 on all my 2010 servers and now after I log into OWA I get an HTTP 500 error and have not had any luck finding a solution online so far.  Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Sean

you'll want to start looking at permissions
check the web.config permissions under the owa file directory

I have two CAS/HUB/MBX servers, a test mailbox on server 01 but if I try to access OWA on 01 I get the 500 error but if I access it off the 02 server my mailbox pulls up.  I've compared the security of web.config on each server and the permissions are the same.  I also did 'Reset Virtual Directory' on the server I'm having an issue with but did not have any luck, I'm still getting the error.  Any other thoughts?

Thanks,

Sean

see if you can get more information by turning of the 'Friendly HTTP Errors' in your browser

an HTTP 500 error is always a server side issue and you verified that by connecting to the other server. typically it is a permission issue somewhere

you can also run the following and compare authentication settings between the two
get-owavirtualdirectory | fl *Auth*

I am having the same issue. When I turned off the friendly errors I get just a blank page after the login.

Try checking the service Microsoft Exchange Forms-Based Authentication and make sure it is started.
