  • Sbs 2003 owa https fubar - 404

    I updated our SSL cert today and now OWA no longer works and I receive 404 errors both internally and externally. It's a free cert from startssl dot com and throws an error and requires you to accept the certificate but it did that before with the previous cert.

    Localhost/exchange works

    with 'require ssl' turned off h t t p:// server/exchange works

    I deleted and reinstalled the exchange components of IIS.

    Let me know if you need more info and I appreciate any help.

    Since this is SBS, have you rerun the CEICW?

    Here's a nice writeup on how to install a new certificate for SBS 2003. http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archi...-sbs-2003.aspx

      I saw CEICW a couple different times looking for solutions but I was afraid that was a 'nuclear option' and might be overkill. I don't want to make things worse than they are by running it. Are there any gotchas that I should be aware of?

        No gotchas. Go through it and it will configure things with the correct settings. You won't lose anything.

        You probably should download and run the SBS 2003 BPA. It will tell you if there are any config changes you should make.

          Is there a way to 'reset' IIS without having to run the CEICW? Uninstall/reinstall?

            The CEICW will not hurt anything. You should run it and see if that fixes the issue.

            You should also download and run the SBS BPA and fix any issues it reports.

            Once you've done those steps and things are still not working then we can look at more drastic measures.

            The CEICW is not a "nuclear" option. Uninstalling/installing IIS is much, much more drastic than rerunning the wizard.

              I think I just had an 'aha' moment. But I need help fixing it.

              I was looking at the eventvwr logs and saw that there was a W3SVC error for site '100'. That didn't really mean anything to me but I just looked at IIS and saw that I have a site 100 that I didn't know about.

              ht tp://jetb2.tonidoid.com/app/webshare/share/ScreenShot005/

              (fix http above because it won't let me post urls yet)


              If I go into that web site and browse 'exchange' it does bring up OWA.
              How do I start/stop/fix redirect this mess?

                Have you messed around a lot with this SBS server? That is not the supported setup in the screenshot. The Exchange web services should be hosted by the default website.
                I still suggest going through the steps I already specified.

                  I'll be able to reboot the server on Sunday so I can run the Wizard then . Fingers crossed.

                    Don't forget to also run the SBS BPA. You can install and run it now without service interruption.

                      Andddddd we're back up and running. The wizard did the trick in restoring OWA back to normal and activesync took another bit of stressing before that was functioning.

                      Thank you so much for the solution and handholding.

                        Glad to help...

                        Now trust me, run the BPA and address any issues it reports.

                          Agreed. The SBS 2011 BPA may be rubbish at the moment, but the 2003 and 2008 ones are really good and any issues in there should be addressed ASAP.
