I just finsihed migrating from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. I moved all connectors, address books, exchange settings, and mailboxes. I pointed everything to the new server including all necessary ports on the router. I am able to access all mailboxes through outlook and I can send and receive mail without  a problem. My issue lies with outlook web access. I have the 2010 version of OWA up and running both internally and externally, I can access the site, but no matter what I do I cannot logon to any account. I keep getting an invalid username/password error but I am 100% using the correct credentials.

I must have missed something, I would appreciate any insight, and yes I have rebooted both servers multiple times.

Thanks in advance.

are you saying that you can't login using your own username and password to OWA?

hi there;

just to make it clear;

you can login to your inbox through OWA; but you can't access other user's inbox?

or

You can't login to your inbox using your username and password; same thing happening with other user as well?

I am the exchange admin. I migrated all mailboxes from 2003 to 2010. MS Outlook works fine but I cannot access any mailboxes via OWA. Not my own not anyones. I have reset passwords rebooted the servers and still have the same problem.  I keep getting a user/pass error, but obviously thats not the case.

did you use  "domain\username"?

Also please check the ECM
on the OWA - authentication tab

I am using forms based authentication domain\username like I normally do. I have done numerous migrations and have never had this problem. However, when I logon it immediately refreshes the page and says invalid user/pass, I am know Im using the correct credentials.

It seems to be OWA redirection issue. Kindly please check into this..

Did you changed the DNS entry to route all the emails to your new server to publish OWA 2010.

You can also check in the Exchange Management Console, if your primary DC is indeed what the exchange server authenticates with.
Just right click on "Organization Configuration" and select - Modify Configuration DomainController.
There select your domain,and the promary DC.
And of course check in the Form based authemtication in you use the UPN option. (for you it needs to be the username only option,not the domain\username)
Good Luck!
