  • Adding an additional exchange server, how do I setup the 2nd OWA?

    Started with 1 subnet, 1 server, 1 site.
    The server is a DC, dns, DHCP, Exchange server.
    Has all of the FSMO roles etc.
    running 2003 R2, sp2, Exchange 2003 sp2
    Runs OWA. OWA is accessible from the outside world - https from the external ip for that site is forwarded to it.

    Have added a 2nd site, own subnet, own server.
    Am in the process of setting up the new server at the new 2nd site.
    Have installed server 2003 r2 sp2.
    There is routing between the subnets, can ping any ip on one subnet for the other.
    Have setup the new server on the 2nd site as a dc, has a copy of the global catalog etc.
    Server is doing DHCP, dns for its subnet etc.

    Netlogon shares etc are replicating beautifully between the sites.

    Have setup exchange 2003 sp2. It was installed as an additional exchange server in an existing exchange environment
    migrated a mail box to the new server.
    tried to navigate to http:\\localhost\exchange on the new server, so I could open the mail box I had just migrated.
    It tried to redirect me to the server at the first site.

    Do I have to do something special to enable OWA on the new server?
    I thought it was on out of the box?
    How do I stop the URL redirection?

    Did you verify that Outlook could connect to the mailbox on the new server? It may not be an OWA issue. Does the Exchange General tab of the user object properties show the new server\storage group\mailstore for the user?

      That sounds like it is directing you back to the original server based on the login. Did you get a login prompt when you connected to the server? If not and it is not your own mailbox that has been moved then the behaviour you are seeing is what I would expect out of the box. OWA/IE has tried to log you in to your own mailbox.
