The file share witness is used to determine which server (in a cluster) is active or passive.
It should not affect OWA at all.

The problem will be if both servers think they are active - this might cause problems.
Best to get the file share witness back online ASAP.

Is this for maintenance?
Is this in case of a failure? (DR scenario)
