SBS 2008/Exchange 2007 OWA cannot be accessed internally or externally.

Hello,

Everything was working until a power outage caused a server crash (as far as I know...).

Cannot access OWA internally or externally.

BPA does not show any errors.

Opening IIS I can browse to my antivirus control panel, but cannot open SBS Web Applications or any of the sites under it.  So IIS appears to be working.

If I click on Exchange (Under SBS Web Aps) I get the error message:

Could not find a part of the path "\\.\BackOfficeStorage\mydomain.local\MBX".

The problem initially showed up as a failure in activesync.  

Suggestions?  Reinstall?

Hi Diggasaur, your link points to a reference for exchange 2003, the solution does not appear to work or have an equivalent with 2007.

Hi dsnegi_25dec,  your link points to a reference for exchange 2010.   In reading more I cannot reset the Client Access virtual directory in the EMC because the cmdlets to change the Client Access Permissions do not exists in Exch 2007.  
Do you know if using the shell commands as described in the article will work with exch 2007?

Thanks,
lalto
