I have two Server 2003 boxes running the CAS 2k7 roll.  They are load balanced through the firewall for external access.  When someone externally tries to access our owa website ( there is an issue.  If the load balancer takes them to one of the servers (call it cas1) it has no issues at all.  If it takes them to the other one (cas2) it tries to redirect them to  This just started happening after we enabled Forms Based Authentication.  I have checked all of the settings in EMC and IIS and cannot find any differences between the two.

Anyways, I am stumped.  I thought it might be a firewall issue but I cannot find a single error there, and the fact that it didn't start happening until after enabled Forms Based Authentication has me thinking that something changed there but I have no idea what would have.  If anyone has ran into this issue before or has an idea I would greatly appreciate the help!
