Posted on 2011-03-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

Getting the following error intalling the first Cas server in the org. We have a custom install of IIS which removes the default web site and default app pool. I have removed this install and loaded the windows default however the error is the same. Any idea??

Check the modules in IIS Manager under the server
Look for the exppw module, if it is present go to modules under the Default Web Site and set it to native

If this module is missing, verify that you have all the Windows 2008 prerequisites installed

small correction:

below the "Default web site\owa"
then click on the search for the exppw.dll

Elected to go with a vanilla install of IIS and it worked fine. Web guys are fine.

IF really wanted to test all the OWA features, try checking the "OWA password change" option.
