Exchange 2003 OMA testing error

Hi All,

I have a problem with Exchange 2003. When I wanted to access the OMA through web browser using a PC I received the following error:

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 
What do you think what could be the problem?

Hi

This does not look like the error you recieved but more a hint to get more detailed errors by adding <customErrors mode="Off"/> to the web.config. Did you try?

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Hi

Open IIS and walk to the OMA entry, click it and select basic settings which will show you where the directory is on the harddisk.
Browse to this directory and open web.config (might require an elevated (as admin) rights tekst editor) then below the entry <system.web> you enter <customErrors mode="Off"/> like your posts mentions. Save it and open up the page to see what error it throws.

It seems like nothing has happened, maybe I should restart some services?

Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
Nope, when IIS sees the web.config changed it will automatically restart the service.
Can you close the web.config and open it again, is the entry still there?

Yepp, check it below.

<system.web>
            <!--  DYNAMIC DEBUG COMPILATION
              Set compilation debug="true" to enable ASPX debugging.  Otherwise, setting this value to
              false will improve runtime performance of this application.
              Set compilation debug="true" to insert debugging symbols (.pdb information)
              into the compiled page. Because this creates a larger file that executes
              more slowly, you should set this value to true only when debugging and to
              false at all other times. For more information, refer to the documentation about
              debugging ASP.NET files.
      -->
            <compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="false" />
            <!--  CUSTOM ERROR MESSAGES
              Set mode="on" or "remoteonly" to enable custom error messages, "off" to disable. Add
              <error> tags for each of the errors you want to handle.
      -->
            <customErrors mode="off" />
            <!--  AUTHENTICATION
              This section sets the authentication policies of the application. Possible modes are "Windows", "Forms",
              "Passport" and "None"

In IIS Basis settings for the virtual directory OMA also shows you which user is used to connect to this C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322

User or application pool, if you use a user here it should have access to the path. ( check to click on test settings)
If you use application pool to connect check its user in application pools-> the pool used by OMA and check advanced options. If the user is NETWORKSERVICE try to change this to Local System and try the website again.

At the OMA properties/folder security I found something that is might not good.
There is an Authentication tab and there "anonymus access.." is unchecked where the user is greyed out (IUSR_MAIL)
What do you think, should I check that?

From memory i only select basic authentication, not anonymous and not integrated Windows. You can try it. BUT: the error states the user has no directory rights to that path so that is where i would focus on.

As you go, note the changes you have made. Once you find the solution it is handy to revert some actions. (like the customErrors=Off, you dont want that staying there)
