We just implemented a new Small Business Server 2011 over the weekend, now when a user logs into the OWA interface they are prompted with an error that says Rights Management Operation Failed.

Hi there,

somehow I suspect that IRM is enabled for the virtual directories.

Could you please do the following?

1. Log on to the exchange server and open (as Administrator) the Exchange Management Shell (EMS)
2. Run "Get-OWAVirtualDirectory | FL" and search for IRM; you'll probably see that it's enabled.
3. Run "Set-OWAVirtualDirectory -IRMEnabled $false"

Now reset IIS and try OWA again.
