Exchange 2003 - Can you restart OWA/Activesync without a full reboot?
Posted on 2014-10-20
We have an Exchange 2003 server which periodically has the OWA and Activesync stop responding. We try restarting IIS, but that doesn't seem to fix it. The only solution to date is a full system reboot. Every time we have done this, the system comes back online properly.
I haven't been able to determine what causes it to crash. Rebooting during the day is obviously problematic, and we seem to be getting more users with this type of connection.
I'm wondering if there is an additional service I can stop/start to bring things back online, without having to resort to a full system reboot.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
