Setup a member server in a 2003 domain with Exchange 2003 to migrate Exchange off of our DC.  Followed Microsoft's article 822931 to replicate PF's, OAB, etc.  Let that run for a day or two and then moved a couple test mailboxes.  Cannot login through OWA to the new member server were the test mailboxes reside and access.  Have to first login to the DC (which Exchange is still running on as well) and then it prompts me to login again to our member server seems something is amiss with the authentication.  Hopefully you can help!
Thanks
Bill

How are you trying to run OWA (using server name in URL?).  The double authentication is strange, but more details might make it clearer.

Also, I'm assuming that you don't have a front-end server handling OWA requests and that the only 2 servers running Exchange are the DC and the new box?

Will not authenticate when I plug in the member server's address just keeps popping up the username/password dialog box.   What I just found out is that when instead I use the FQDN it works just fine instead of the IP Address (192.168.2.240) - !!!!!  Not sure what's happening there.  Need to test from a workstation using Outlook, will do tonight.

I found in the past that I had to specify the server's name in the URL when initially testing, and once I was ready to implement into production I had to update DNS to point to the new server's IP address (and/or reconfigure NAT on the firewall to point the public IP address for the mail server to the new server) and configure IIS on the new server with the domain names.  It's been awhile so I don't recall the details, but you're definitely on the right track by NOT using the IP address in the URL.
