Windows Server 2003 OWA login page not loading

Hi - I installed a freash copy of Windows Server 2003 ENT w/ SP2, Exchange 2003 w/SP2, DC and DNS all on 1 server box.

When I go to http:\\127.0.0.1\exchange I get the login pop up window. So far looking good! Now at this point I did the following to turn on forms based authentication and added SSL Cert.

http://www.petri.co.il/configuring_forms_based_authentication_in_exchange_2003.htm

Now when I go to http:\\127.0.0.1\exchange I get a msg that it has to be a secure page, which is a good sign that SSL setting is working. So I try https:\\127.0.0.1\exchange and I get cannot display page. Again this is a freash install and everything is running on 1 box.

Any ideas what I might be missing?

Need to check if the anonymous access is broken @ the IIS

> On the "Default Web Site"\iisstart.htm, change the file-security to anonymous...access the same...which shouldn't prompt for auth.

If yes, we need to reset the IUSR accounts password

Hi e aravind,

thanks for your reply! I checked iistart.htm and anonymous is already checked. Not sure what you mean about "access the same"? Do I still need to reset the IUSR account password?

The issue was cause by a corrupt SSL cert. After having the my cert reissued fixed the problem.
