First check all Exchange Services are running. IIS Service is running, Open IIS and try to browse OWA from IIS.
check application logs for errors.

Yes they are..  WEBDav is set for Exchange 2003 or 2000. Could that be the issue?

When I browse to it via IIS it prompts for password, then tells me the page isn't redirecting properly.

They have two exchange servers here, 03 and 07, however 07 is primary.  So it seems to be.. I'm trying to get rid of 03. In the process of moving everyone over. I inherited this mess.. So please excuse. ;)

It seems your OWA is or was pointing to 2003. First you need to point OWA URL to 2007 server via changing DNS entry. Read this

When you restarted these server. That's the first step, I will do before doing anything else. Sometime Non paged pool memory issue causes IIS to stop working. So restart it. Next you can use wireshark to check what is going on. Finally, we can call MS.

Have you tried from a different browser or computer? Could be DNS related. Maybe flush the cache from command prompt : IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS.

Are you testing owa from the mailbox which is on Exchange 2007 or on Exchange 2003 ?
1) Try creating a new user on Exchange 2007 server and check if it throws the same error for this user.
2) Check if any kind of redirection is set on Exchange 2007

3) Run exbpa and check if it reports any issue which may relate to this.

What do you mean by "OWA does not seem to be setup."

Do you see the OWA virtual directory in IIS?

This server was never configured properly. Now the Out of office assistant can't be turned off on any of the users... We are not running SBS. Member server Exchange 2007. Nothing happens when I go to http://localhost/owa

Hey Joe, Experts Exchange has a Hire Me function you may want to look at. You can go to the Network menu at the top and select "Hire an expert".

You can also click on the experts name and see if they have the Hire Me function enabled on their profile.

Ah, thanks... I was looking for it to be free, as all of the comment are free as well... Very few people can fix any of my questions I post. I delete the question once its known it can't be fix by anyone on EE. I'm currently joining another forum to see if anyone over there can help me...

I uninstalled WEB IIS successfully, rebooted. Then reinstalled it. I then Tried to remove CAS, but it can't find the METABASE and fails.. is there a way to force the the uninstall the CAS even though it can't find it? It will not allow me to re-install it over itself.. which sucks..

JoeteckAuthor Commented:
Ok, I got it working finally... the correct order was Uninstall CAS IIS, reinstall IIS, CAS.

The link I provided was correct, but the wrong order. I uninstalled IIS. Then re-installed it, using the default options, plus IIS Management Console, Dynamic Content compression, Basic Authentication, Digest Authentication.

I then tried to to remove the CAS role, which failed with "Can't fine METABASE data"

I then ran in PS ServerMangerCmd -i Web-MetaBase, which repaired it.  
I was then finally able to removed the CAS role, successfully by entering "exsetup.exe /mode:uninstall /role:ca"

Then re-installed it by entering "exsetup.exe /mode:install /role:ca"

OWA and OOF are now back.. WOOT!
