  • webmail exchange 2003 doesnt work after server sp2 install

    Hello,
    Last night I ran the windows sp2 install on my front end and backend exch 2003 servers. today I have users telling me they canít get to the webmail login page. I checked and IIS services are started. The error I am getting is IE cannot display the webpage, I am running a mix of Ie8 and Ie7 on some users. Mailbox stores are up and running, email is flowing.. any suggestions..???

    Exchange 2003
    Windows 2003 standard sp2
    Front end server
    Back end server

    Lots and lots to check here.

    Have you been into IIS and browsed directly from there? You need to resolve this by a process of elmination.

    First thing to check is IIS itself. The services may well be started, but is the default web page started?

    Has something else decided to start on 80/443 and you may not be using host headers? What port does OWA run on? Will it only allow SSL? What happens when you remove "require SSL" and log on via port 80?

    Check website has started, if not try and start it and look at the error.

    If website has started, try and right click it and "browse" - what are the results?

    Problem is 95% an IIS one, not so much an Exchange one.

    Let me know your results.
