Customized Outlook Web Access 2007 SP3 Theme Not Showing Up

I am currently running Exchange 2007 SP3.  I have attempted to follow the instructions outlined here, http:/ /technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb310750%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx.  However, the new theme is not showing up.  I have placed it under "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\\themes\" and it did not show up even after restarting the server.  I even tried "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\Current\themes" and it didn't show up.  Am I placing this in the wrong place or doing something wrong?  Under "About" in OWA it says I am using version

Did you update the themeinfo.xml with the name of your theme?
Once you up do that you just need to make sure the folder is under the highest version in the directory
Then an iisreset will make the name appear under the general settings in OWA

Yes, I did do all of that, but no luck.
In my lab

I created the folder named Aravind @ the location

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\\themes\Aravind

>> copied the bunch of files and now, the value is provided @ the themeinfo.xml is visible for the OWA users.

[PS] C:\>Get-OwaVirtualDirectory e2k7server\owa* | fl *Theme*

DefaultTheme          :
ThemeSelectionEnabled : True

>> the above should be result @ your machines too.
Is that correct?

Yes that is correct.
>> still the "the new theme is not showing up" @ the OWA options pages correct?

>> Can you make some changes on the existing themes and see if the OWA pages are reflecting this change.
Else, can you double-check the OWA access directly on this CAS server

Note: if needed we can check the iis logs too
jdouthitAuthor Commented:
The actual solution was I needed the theme on the back end database server.  I was putting it on the front end server that hosts the OWA interface.  This solution pointed me in the right direction, though.
