Check the persistence settings within the F5, and furthermore check the OWA virtual directory locally.

On each CAS do the following:

https://127.0.0.1/owa

Ignore the cert error and login. What happens?

Check your persistence settings, and the settings on the F5. its most likely that.

If all else fails you can try recreating the OWA website as it is a relatively simple process. Follow the steps in this article to recreate it: http://exchangeshare.wordpress.com/2008/07/16/how-to-recreate-owa-virtual-directory-exchange-2007/

@BS ITS - I don't think its the virtual directory. He can connect to them fine the loopback address on the local server.

It sounds like the F5 is either not handling persistence correctly or sending an improper HTTP request.
