Hello,
I'm attempting to work through an issue with OWA on my new Exchange 2010 SP1 RU4 install.  It looks like this is a known issue, but I can't find a working solution for me.  My issue is that when we connect to OWA (internal or external), we can get to the login screen, then after that, we get an HTTP 500 error.

So, from what I've found and confirmed, is that the issue is with the Microsoft Forms Based Authentication Service.  It doesn't star ton boot, and the service is set to delayed start.   This is the case.  If I attempt to manually start the service, it fails to start.  From my event viewer:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Service Control Manager
Date:          9/22/2011 4:08:30 PM
Event ID:      7024
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      
Description:
The Microsoft Exchange Forms-Based Authentication service service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259.


The service shows no dependencies (is that correct?).  But I cannot get the service to start for the life of me.
Any Suggestions?

Well, I restated the World Wide Web Publishing Service, then manually started the forms service and it started.

Still looking to see if anyone has an actual solution for this.  It seems like OWA craps out often.

Yes, there is no any dependencies for FBA service but yes to work Exchange 2010 OWA smoothly it requires WWW and IISADMIN both are in started state.

Sometime we need to restart those services work FBA service properly.
