Exchange 2007 - Authentication popup and EWS problem

Hi,

I'm managing an Exchange 2007 Server installed on Windows Small Business 2008. Recenlty I  installed the server and updates available. Since then, have alot of problem with the server.

I had to manually delete every IIS SBS Web Application and recreate it with the Exchange Management Shell.

The problem I have now is the following:

When user use Outlook they enter their credentials and after a couple of seconds another popup appear that demand to enter credentials again. Even if I enter the correct user and passwords, this popup always appear a couple of seconds later.

It's my understanding that this problem is releated to to EWS entry in IIS, but cannot find the necessary solution to solve it.

It's important to note that user can still access email, calendar, note etc. even if they have this popup. Once we close the window a couple of times, user can use outlook normally until the problem appear again.
In attachment I joined the output of the "test-outlookwebservices" | fl command

It seems to me that your permissions on your Exchange Virtual Directories are a bit pooched.
How did you recreate the virtual directories?

Grts,

Hi,

I used the command available in the script available here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd767439%28WS.10%29.aspx

Remove-EWSVirtualDirectory -Identity "SBS Web Applications"
Remove-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "SBS Web Applications"

And Then, recreate the entry with the command

New-OWAVirtualDirectory -WebsiteName "SBS Web Applications" -OwaVersion "Exchange2007" -ExternalAuthenticationMethods Fba
Set-OWAVirtualDirectory -InternalUrl "https://sites/owa/" -ClientAuthCleanupLevel "Low" -LogonFormat "UserName" -DefaultDomain $strDomainDNS -Identity "Owa (SBS Web Applications)"
New-OWAVirtualDirectory -WebsiteName "SBS Web Applications" -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "Exadmin" -ExternalAuthenticationMethods Fba
New-OWAVirtualDirectory -WebsiteName "SBS Web Applications" -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "Mailboxes" -ExternalAuthenticationMethods Fba
New-OWAVirtualDirectory -WebsiteName "SBS Web Applications" -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "Exchweb" -ExternalAuthenticationMethods Fba

Since this is an SBS2008, did you (re)run the Internet Publishing/Connection wizard?
