I have been trying to find a way to allow users to enter just their username instead of the domain\username combo. I ran the command iis /noforce and now none of my users are able to connect through Outlook Anywhere to the exchange server. Any help is appreciated.

Start Exchange Management Console and open Organization Configuration > Client Access > right click on OWA and you can find that settings.
I'm not in my office right now and i can tell you exactly which option to choose.

iisreset /restart seems to have solved the problem. I had never used the iisreset command before and didnt realize that all it's doing is a soft restart on IIS. Whatever the problem was, restarting all the IIS services fixed it.

Please open Exchange Management Console> Server Configuration> Client Access> OWA (properties) Authentication Tab> Select Use Forms Based Authentication> User name only.

Apply and then run IISRESET.

I'd look at just restarting IIS again or rebooting the server if possible - do you have any other applications running in IIS?
