Hi Experts,
We have setup a new Exchange 2010 server and was trying to reconfigure the redirects. In doing so, messed up some other IIS configuration where now whenever I'm logged into OWA and click on a new email or try to click Options, get a prompt that states "Your network connection is unavailable. Please reconnect and try again."

I've tried resetting all of the virtual directories from the EMC with no solution. Please help!!

Thanks.

Check your certificates, you might need to reconfigure them.

check the event logs on your iis server. they are a good place to start. also there might be issues with permissions on the virtual directories as well.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Okay, figured out that the "Exchange" and "Exchweb" folders had an HTTP Redirect assigned. As soon as I removed that statement and did an iisreset, things seemed to work.

However, now I'm getting the following error that is disrupting service. Any ideas?
 OWA Error

What is in the report.tif?

Rename the OWA\web.config file then copy the web.config from the OWA folder under your SP/install source files. Then do step 4 of my article and try OWA again

Yeah, that's what happend to us too. When trying to apply the main Default website redirect, it populated down to the subfolders and virtual sites. Removing the redirects for all the sub components fixed the issue.

Thanks for the update and final solution. Removing the OWA virtual directory and recreating it would of corrected the issue too ;-)
