  • Exchange 2K10 SP1 - OWA Redirect Not Working

    Hi All,
    We are late to the game and just now installing Exchange 2K10 SP1 onto our Exchange server (running all roles minus Edge Transport). After completeing the install and running through some tests all services seem to working without issue except for OWA (which was working prior to the update).

    Currently when accessing OWA externally at http://mail.company.com we are receiving 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. However if you enter https://mail.company.com the OWA sign in page comes up with out issue. I have followed the steps in this TechNet article with no success.

    Any thoughts on how to resolve this are greatly welcomed.

    Presumably the word "internally" is missing from the second access attempt?
    Have you tried adding /OWA (the target directory) as permissions may be different at the root of the web server?

    Have you done the correct port forwarding at your router?
    What server platform are you using?

      Ossian,

      Thank you for the response. After doing some more research into the issue it turns out the problem was the "require ssl" option was checked on the IIS default website. Prior to doing the Exchange SP1 upgrade we also installed Win2K8R2 SP1 and am not sure if that or the Exchange SP1 changed this. After clear that check box all is working as expected.

      Thx,
