  • cannot display public folders in OWA 2003

    hi,

    on our OWA 2003 it is not possible to access the public folders. the OWA itself works ok, tryin to open the PB ends in the following

    HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable

    error message.

    the access inside the company LAN through webbrowser however,works by adding the correct URL.

    doing exactly the same from "outside",the error shows up.

    does anyone has an idea how to enable the PB`s?

    i tried to do fix through OWA admin,but it doenst work,too.

    we have a FE/BE topology,server and exchange 2003 SP2.

    When you say "PB" do you mean PF?

    What's the URL you're trying to reach?

    What FW are you using? Does it block specific URLs? Try to temporarily allow all HTTP/HTTPS traffic to the Front End server, see what happens (you should also look at the FW's logs).

    Internally, if you connect to the Front-End, does it work?

        it will almost always work when connecting to the backend. the problem needs to be corrected on the front end...
        You receive the "HTTP 1.1/ 503 Service is no longer available" error message when users try to access Exchange 2000 or Exchange Server 2003 public folders by using Outlook Web Access
        the entire KB is located here.

        run thru the suggested resolutions and see if they help. actually, run thru the causes first and verify that your scenario meets the criteria of the cause, then try the resolution.

        if that KB isnt applicable to your situation, then post back and we can reset the public folders correctly.

            Does the URL change when you connect to the frontend server for Public Folders?
            Do you have anything between the two servers?
            Are you publishing OWA through anything - ISA for example?
