  • Ex2007 user can not login

    Ok following my little cockup with SSL, I have it working again, and leads me right into a new problem.

    Have 2000 with 2007 setup, all works ok, can move users to the 2007 and email gets there etc, however...

    If I go to https://mailcas01/exchange I get the login box come up. I have forms auth set and domain pre-populated on the folders via the ESM.

    Now if I login with a user whose mailbox is still on Ex2000 it loads up the exchange webmail without an issue.

    If I login with a user whose mailbox is on 2007 I get returned to the login page with "The username or password you have entered is invalid. Please try again"

    I know the password and user account are still good, as I can log into a TS with the same details, this was also working before the minor cockup with the SSL. Now I have no idea where to look to try and fix this

    Any help is appricated

    Thanks

    Check the URLs that are configured in the virtual directories. Otherwise remove them all and reinstate the URLs using the PowerShell commands.

      As far as I can tell the URLs are configured correctly.

      I have removed the exchange folders and reinstalled them with the powershell scripts. The ones I used are listed below.

      Code:
      get-owavirtualdirectory -server mailcas01 -DomainController maindc1 | ? {$_.OwaVersion -eq "Exchange2003or2000"} | remove-owavirtualdirectory -DomainController maindc1
      
      new-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "Mailboxes" -DomainController maindc1
      new-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "Exadmin" -DomainController maindc1
      new-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "PublicFolders" -DomainController maindc1
      new-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion "Exchange2003or2000" -VirtualDirectoryType "exchweb" -DomainController maindc1
      This still did not fix the issue I am having, I have even built a new CAS server and this still has the same issue, leading me to suspect its somthing wrong with the mailbox server, but I do not know what it could be

      Any help is appricated

      Thanks

        That doesn't show the Exchange 2007 version of the OWA directories being removed. If you are having problems connecting to Exchange 2007 mailboxes on OWA then you need to remove that version as well.

          Simon,

          Thanks for your help, however I have realised I have made such a newbie error.

          I moved the mailbox back from 2007 to 2000 as I was getting ready to remove Exchange completely and rebuild it as nothing seemed to work.

          So moved it back and it still could not log in, it was only then while sorting out a user account in AD did I think to check the account I was having problems with only to find it was locked out...

          So there was some piss taking in the office about that, but it never occurred to me, as it stopped working after I messed about with the SSL.

          So thanks for your help Simon

          Cheers

          Dave
