OWA 2010 Authentication Results in 500 Error

I've had OWA working fine after a migration to 2010 w/o any problems.  Then all of the sudden it's stopped working.

I can get the Login Page up fine.  I enter credentials for any user and I get an Internal Server Error (500 Error) upon clicking the Login button.

That's it. Nothing in the logs regarding permissions or anything.  I do see this error in the Application logs though:

Process MSEXCHANGEADTOPOLOGY (PID=1316). The site monitor API was unable to verify the site name for this Exchange computer - Call=DsctxGetContext Error code=8007077f. Make sure that Exchange server is correctly registered on the DNS server.

Sorry I don't have more to go on.  But I can't seem to find anything out there to look into regarding the OWA 500 Error.

Thanks,
Adam

Did you reboot the exchange server and make sure all of your services have started up?

Do you have the Exchange server also configured as a domain controller?

Do you have the correct settings in the TCP/IP properties of the Exchange server to point to your internal AD integrated DNS servers? Do you have any NIC teaming or bridging enabled?

Well, now.  That was of course the first thing I did, but what I failed to do was double-check the Services.

Sure enough Microsoft Exchange Forms-Based Authentication service was not started - even though it was set to Automatic.

Started it up and bingo, we're in business.

Thanks for your help and the obvious answer is always the first to check right?  :)
