IIS / OWA on SBS 2008 Not Working

Hi all,

We recently installed and uninstalled Trend on an SBS 2008 Server (due to a conflict with a bespoke app), now OWA and RWW aren't accessible anymore.  The services are running but nothing.  When I go to the usual address "office.clientDomain.com"  (or locally http://servername/")I get an IIS welcome page but nothing else.

What is odd is that I am now seeing Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager 6.0 snap in (old school) AND the new Internet Information Services snap in (new SBS 2008 style).

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Bob

Hi There,

It sounds like the OWA Virtual directories could of become damaged.

It might be worthwhile rebuilding the OWA Virtual directions using a combination of the following two links:

Remove-OwaVirtualDirectory: Exchange 2007 Help
New-OwaVirtualDirectory: Exchange 2007 Help

Make sure you back it all up first, but read through those MS Articles. Would be worth a shot....

It also sounds like the IIS http redirect is not on or configured correctly on the OWA virtual directory.  if you go to office.clientdomain.com/owa does it direct properly?

Hi,

Interestingly no it doesn't, unless I manually enter HTTPS - for some reason the redirect to the HTTPS equivalent of any domain isn't taking place.  I also tested just https://office.clientDomain.com and I am taken to the correct welcome page, indicating that everything is working fine except the HTTP thing.

Unfortunately this appears to be stopping Outlook over HTTP from working also.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

If you run through these steps, (this is how to configure RPC over HTTP for Exchange 2007

This may help identify the issue:
