SBS 2003 - After Restart Can't Browse OWA

Client of mine called this morning saying they had to restart the server, I connected after to see it give me the error about improper shutdown, not sure if they held the power button or not.  

Now I try to browse the https://domain/exchange and getting a HTTP 500 error, was getting a HTTP 1.1/ 503 Service is no longer available.

Read some articles, and reset the HKEY Classes Root Permission.  Still having same issue.

Any ideas?

also found this somewhere

Well, we finally found the solution. On a Google message board someone wrote that you need to:

The solution is to copy  \Program Files\Exchsrvr\exchweb\6.5.7226.0 from the
back-end to the front-end server. It worked perfectly after we did this.

Under IIS and under the Exchange site, i changed Application Settings to Exchange, and Application Pool to ExchangeApplicationPool, I am now getting the login page, but now it goes to HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavaliable.

Can you try a second reboot?  RWW often needs a second reboot, especially after some updates.
Also verify in IIS that that all sites are running, and in the services management console all "automatic" services are running, especially WWW publishing.

Rob WilliamsCommented:
Careful making changes, it is unlikely a reboot made configurations changes automatically. Can you mount the store or a reboot will likely do that for you. If they hit the power button it can affect Exchange, or any database. Databases do not like sudden shutdowns but a followup proper shut down will usually resolve, though it may take longer than usual the first time.

It is also possible a suddenshutdown has corrupted the database.

I have restarted multiple times, trying to mount is giving errors.  

Error 0xffffff01 starting Storage Group /DC=com/DC=ABC/DC=local/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Exchange/CN=ABC/CN=Administrative Groups/CN=first administrative group/CN=Servers/CN=W2K3SERVER/CN=InformationStore/CN=First Storage Group on the Microsoft Exchange Information Store.

The Exchange troubleshooting assistant 'can' help to determine issues relating to mounting the database:

It may ultimately require restoring the Exchange database:

We've replaced the entire server after the exchange crash since the server needed to be replaced anyway.  A full exchange rebuild is what was finally needed.
