Activesync stopped working on Exchange 2003 server, gone in IIS
Posted on 2011-02-21
Ok maybe I'm reaching but maybe someone can shed some light on this for me
Have 2 Exchange Servers, a 2010 SP1 and a 2003....90% of the mailboxes that use activesync for phones and owa are one the 2003 server. We also activesync and owa setup on the 2010 server under a different url.
Tonight at 8pm active sync stopped working on the 2003 server. Looked in IIS on the 2003 server and no entries at all for activesync...
I guess this may sound silly..but...can Exchange 2010 activesync services actually go out and kill a earlier version in 2003?
Grasping for straws a bit as have no idea why activesync decided to give up the ghost on the 2003 front end server...nothing in logs at all to explin anything....both servers have had their activesync services running just fine with each other for over a month.....only thing different is a bunch of updates were installed this morning,,,,but I wouldnt think they would kill anything plus this issue happened hours after those updates
Ok well I know its a shot in the dark but maybe someone might know
