  • OWA 2007 is not working

    hi every buddy
    my case is
    i have exchange 2007 installed on win server 2003 r2 sp2
    since i have installed exchange 2007 the users internally use OWA , yesterday i found that the owa is not working

    the owa URL is ttps://dc8/owa
    where the DC8 is my exchange server
    the url become ttps://dc8/owa/auth/logon.aspx?url=https://dc8/owa&reason=0
    and the page can not be found appears with error 404

    i have restarted the iis
    i have removed the owa directory and recreated it
    but the same error exist
    so what do y think i should do to solve this problem

    what has changed recently?
    have you installed any new service packs, or oter aptches ?
    any new software?

    what happens if you try and browse the url from the host itself

      the only change was renewing the self assigned certificate
      and the owa was tested and it was working
      no service back installed

        As an aside, the server hostname suggests that it is a domain controller. Installing Exchange on a DC is not advisable, nor recommended by Microsoft, other than on SBS which you are not running.

              a) Please use a normal font
              b) Why are you just going to SP1 when SP3 has been out for some time now?
