    You will have to turn down the default authentication on the domain.
    Windows 2008 wants to use NTLMv2 if I recall correctly and it will have to be changed in the Domain Controller Security Policy to NTLM I think.

    I haven't run the combination of Windows 2000 in a Windows 2008 R2 domain, the generation gap is much too wide for my liking. I would have preferred to have got Exchange off Windows 2000 before upgrading the domain personally.

      well, i solved the problem by installing another front-end server and moving all services to the front-end server.
      the old front end is still not accepting owa clients and giving the same error message.

      however, i am migrating to Exchange 2010 and i won't be using the old system anyway

      Thanks everyone
