OWA Not Available Exchange 2003

I have Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard running on a standalone Windows 2003 Server Ent. SP2. I had OWA working with no problem. It's been fine for months. I got a Blackberry and it accesses my email using OWA and I noticed every couple of weeks my blackberry would tell me to validate my account. So I would enter my password and everything was fine. Same thing happened again and it wouldn't take my password. So first thing I did was tried to log into OWA through a web browser and I would get a page saying the service was unavailable. So I restarted the Exchange server and the service was back. I read something about adding a registry entry for " EnableAggressiveMemoryMode" or something like that. I figured that would work. Well, I got the same problem today. So I'm trying to find out what else can I try to fix this problem. I have a client running a sbs2003 server and the OWA service is always up. Help.

I assume your server is having high NPP issue.

On normal server, once the NPP reaches 108MB, HTTP Service get hung and go down.
Enable aggressive memory registry key will increase the limit from 108 to 115 MB.

Check the NPP first using perfomn -> memory -> Non Paged pooled memory

See if its above 100 MB all the time.
If its spiking above 105 MB, you can suspect that its due to high npp issue.

Also, the next time when u face this issue, check the NPP before doing anything.

Thanks

You could check with the HTTPERR log to get a conclusion regarding the NPP Issue

Reference:
"Page cannot be displayed" due to Non-Paged Pooled Memory Depletion
