  • OWA on Exchange 2003

    Hi all,

    Thanks in advance for taking a look at my question and even more thanks if you help me figure this out.

    I work in a smallish company (100 users - 30+ in the main office), I'm looking to implement OWA for the site and external users to use. What my plan is to make sure everything works internally before making it available on the tinternet

    We have OWA on the windows 2003 server with Exchange 2003 running IIS.

    I have OWA implemented and it works fine not using SSL/CA as soon as i implement the Certificates and SSL it will not allow me to log in. It redirects me to the OWA login page and asks me to login and everything looks normal but no matter what login details or format i use it will not allow me to progress past this point (It allowed me to login before SSL was implemented np's). I have tried using just username, [email protected], domain\username , all unsuccessful.

    My boss who setup the domain has it called domain.local would the .local effect this at all when trying to sort out the authentication?

    I have recreated the SSL setup using different guides on the net. Can anyone point me in the correct direction to troubleshoot the problems?

    I can't see anything obvious in the event viewer.

    Sorry I'm still learning alot about exchange but still sort of being under the trial period atm I want to get this resolved quicksmart and I've come to a brick wall

    Thanks again for any help you can offer

    Dave

      The use of the SSL certificate should not have broken OWA unless the SSL certificate was corrupt. Therefore the first thing I would do is remove the SSL certificate and see if OWA is working correctly.

      Are you using a home grown certificate or a purchased certificate? If a home grown certificate you really should be looking at a purchased certificate to avoid security warnings.

        I'm using a home grown certificate. and removing the SSL makes OWA function fine. i've recreated the SSL using many dif step throughs including the petri one and it wont let me past that login page

          The use of SSL shouldn't break the functionality in that way.
          Have you tried to enforce SSL use, use a redirect or change the permissions or authentication settings on the Exchange virtual directories?

          I don't recommend using a home grown SSL certificate for OWA anyway.

          Simon.
