  • where is OWA?

    Hi

    having a stupid problem but can't see what I'm missing.

    Client running exchange 2000 on server 2000 wants OWA for a couple of users.

    I've looked in active directory and in exchange features there is no entry for OWA.

    I put the latest service patches on but still no OWA.

    I inserted the exchange cd in and as per the web looked for

    setup server and components

    (i dont have this)

    I have Exchanger server setup & active driectory setup as options.

    I can see no option to add OWA if I select the option to install exchange is the menu tree I see no option to install OWA.

    I thought it was installed by default but clearly not.

    Can someone tell me where/how to add the service?

    thanks

    Ian

    have you tried typing in the web browser:

    http://www.domain-name.com/exchange

    Does a logon screen appear?

    2 2 was 1 2.

        Why are you using Exchange 2000? It is pretty much not being supported by MS. At least that's what I hear.


        Secondly, OWA is there by default http://mail.domainname.com/exchange or https:// depends if you have the SSL for OWA.

          Hi

          thanks one and all, I have progressed but not sure if it's good or bad.

          I've been to the exchange virtual server has a red cross indicating the service is not running.

          So I started it and after 30 secs or so get the error

          the service did not respond in to the start control in a timely manner.
          Facility W32
          ID 800704id
          Exchange system manager.

          I've looked at google and foune nothing.

          Is this a generic message?

          thanks

            Open up the IIS manager and make sure your default web site is running?If it is working, then try to browse http(s)://servername.

            And if http(s)://servername is wokring then try http(s)://servername/exchange

            Also opner service manager and make sure IISADMIN and WWWSVC is in "Started" state

              Hi

              thanks for that, it seems to have out me on the correct track.

              The defauklt web site is not running and when I right click and select start I'm told "address already in use"

              Also I see no listing for wwwsvc in the service manager.

              Off to research address in use

              thanks

                Re: where is OWA?

                Do you have any other website running on that server? If yes, then make sure they are not runnig on the same IP including ports?

                WWWSVC is world wide web service [/U][/U]in service manager.

                  That would be easy to see in IIS manager if this was the case as one of the sites wouldnt start and would have stooped by the side of it.

                    Sorry i am not able to get your point here...

                    This is what the post onwer has said in his below post :- "The defauklt web site is not running and when I right click and select start I'm told "address already in use" "

                    I replied:-Do you have any other website running on that server? If yes, then make sure they are not runnig on the same IP including ports?


                    Now Please tell me what do you mean by "if this was the case as one of the sites wouldnt start "

                    Where i am going wrong?

                      hey Ian,

                      Could you post us a screenshot of your IIS console ? We can probbaly then visually see what's causing the site to stop and tell you.
                      I have a reasonable idea of what it is... but the visual will confirm and give me specific examples to explain it by, rather then generic responses..
                      Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point https://www.petri.com/forums/core/im.../icon_beer.gif

                        Hi

                        I have now I think moved forward on the learning curve

                        On the server I typed in http://localhost and got a screen up witha simple text line

                        mr noone

                        I suspect the server has been hacked and is currently being use for some nefarious purpose????

                        So to progress on the exisiting job (because I'm quoting for a new 2007 server based on SBS)

                        I change the port from 80 to 8025 and typed in http://localhost/exchange and lo and behold I got the expected OWA front end.

                        But now if on the web I type

                        http://000.000.000.000/exchange I get a generic page not found error.

                        I'm assuming that if exchange owa works locally then its a port fowarding issue on the router? I've set the router to forward port 80 to port 8025

                        Is my logic correct?

                        thanks

                          Hi

                          ok I sort of hve egg on face in that I recently installed a new router and left the remote admin turned on.

                          Now it's turned of I can now type in http://ipaddress/exchange and get a user name and password box.

                          Regretably if I type in a user name and password it all times out I get no bad password/user message and if I type http://ipaddress/exchange/username

                          I get a page not found

                          However at least I can now connect

                          Any thoughts anyone?

                          thanks

                          Ian

                            Have you tried using the legacy SAM username as well as the UPN? Such as:

                            domain\username

                            OR

                            [email protected]

                            OR
