IIS incorrect redirect after GFI Upgrade

Posted on 2012-08-10
Last Modified: 2012-08-18

I have updated a customers version of GFI MailArchiver to v2012 and after the process, despite a successful install, I have got errors accessing the GFI interface

When I open the GFI link it now redirects to http://<servername/owa/MailArchiver

I then get a Error 404 obviously.

Also if I try to go to the internal OWA address it gets redirected to http://<servername>/owa/owa

I can't see where the issue lies and need to get this running as I'd like to do some work on the archive over the weekend

    Ok so we need to know which re-direction isn't working -

    are you accessing and it should point to OR OR OR and it should point to

    OR OR OR and it should point to

    Please rerun the Configure Internet Address Wizard followed by the FixMyNetwork Wizard.  This should resolve the problem for you.

    I went to bed (it was about 1:45am in the UK) and when I had a fresh head I managed to see that the "default web site" for some reason had a redirect to the "owa" folder on all requests

    this meant that any request it got then had the "owa" address inserted into the URL it tries to resolve

    I'll allocate points tho as you took the time to respond
