  • OWA - Error 404 when opening *some* messages

    Edit: It appears that this is a known issue with URLScan where it filters a special character, etc. I don't have URLScan installed *anymore*. I wonder if some remnant of it is causing my issue or just HTTP.sys. Comments?

    Not sure whether this should show up there, but take a look at the output of:

    Code:

      I didn't see anything but another set of eyes can't hurt... Please take a look.

      Edit:

      I found the problem.

      I have ISAPI_Rewrite installed. It has a default rule it creates that in some way acts like URLScan.

      Code:
      [ISAPI_Rewrite]
      
      # Defend your computer from some worm attacks
      ;RewriteRule .*(?:global.asa|default\.ida|root\.exe|\.\.).* . [F,I,O]
      The problem disappeared once I commented out the above line in the ini file.

        Thanks for the idea though Guy, it got me wondering about what else might be touching the page request after HTTP.sys and filtering it. That lead to me checking out metabase explorer and noticing ISAPI_Rewrite, which I totally forgot was installed.

        Thanks man, Rock on!

              An idea might be to create your own thread with details specific to your situation.

              Hi-jack a THREE year old thread again or further break the posting rules and you shall receive a site infraction.
