Exchange 2007 - OWA

Good morning all.

I've recently been put in charge of Exchage 2007, inheriting anothers environment, and am having an issue with OWA that I can't seem to track or isolate.

When an attempt is made to access OWA internally or externally, the IIS7 screen appears. I've restarted the web site without it making a difference. I have found the following errors in event viewer indicating a problem but it's unclear to me. I'm also uncertain where else to look for problem identification.

Warning - event id 5026 - MS Exchange Transport
Warning - event id 9871 - MSExchangeIS Mailbox Store
Error - event id 1020 - MSExchange Store Driver

I'm also finding some VSS and SCHANNEL errors and question the possible relation with Exchange.

What where should I be looking for and where should I be looking ? Will the Exchange Management tools offer some help? I am new to Exchange 2007 and am a little lost.

If there is no redirection, then you need to type the server address with the OWA address:

http://servername/owa

Try this first to confirm OWA is available and then we can work on setting up redirection.

Hi,

When you say "IIS7 Screen" I presume you talk about the sort of default web page that is configured by default on the root site in IIS !?

In that case, can you confirm that your OWA URL finished with "/owa" !??

By default, the OWA URL is https://yourserver.yourdomain.com/owa !
If you forgot the "/owa" suffix then you reach the root web page, not the OWA page.


Have a good day.

What is the FQDN used for accessing OWA. You can use ExRCA tool to test the OWA.

Hi Spartan.

Unfortunately, that doesn't want to work. The OWA address is owari.companydomain.com. So, I reied https://servername/owari.companydomain.com

OWA relies on the URL being configured correctly on the Client Access Server and the IIS service being bound to the correct certificate with the same name/URL.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

So, owa is named as "Default Web Site" in IIS&. Is it as simple as renaming that to anything?

Check the URL in CAS OWA URL Setting. No need to change anything in IIS for now.

I'm not finding Server Config -> CAS -> Owa (Default Web Site)   Outlook anywhere is visible in the right action pane.

I think this is a clear display of a learning curve. I'll follow-up with a couple of internal folks to make certain they're using the right and complete url.

Were you expecting different results when changing the url? Also, are there better log files to review when working to isolate and diagnose an Exchange prblem? Thanks for your help.
