Good evening people, or at least, here it is evening again :(
What turned out to be a nice day ended sitting
behind my pc for about 9 hours troubleshooting my fresh installation of exchange 2007 with Server 2008.
start from the beginning describing my problem and then telling you guys ( and girls ) what i have found out so far.
I have installed Server 2008 with the latest updates and so on. Then i installed AD and DNS. Again updates.
i installed IIS, but i did not install ASP in the beginning, forgot it.
Then i installed exchange 2007 and after
installing the last features it needed i was ready and finished with the installation.
But then it started. As i
though i just go to my https://localhost/owa i got a popup where i needed to fill in my credentials for logging in. But to
bad, i just got an error.
As i must add, the error is different logging in locally then logging in remotely (
connecting to the web access page owa ).
Locally i get the popup telling me this when i try logging in:
HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found
The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file
Detailed Error Information
Ok, so then i tried it remotely, after my own pc cause i was working remotely trying to solve this ( not so
easy found ) problem.
Error as following:
404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
Ok things i have tried:
I looked at form based authentication at first cause i thought it would
be that problem. But no, form based auth was allready active and changing it didn't solve anything.
Then i digged
in to the certificates and also trying to connect without ssl. No solution :( Coming back to the cert. I have a godaddy turbo
ssl cert and i installed that. No solution ( as i thought but i want to have tested it all ).
Finally i digged in
to IIS for some time and googled myself crazy but no solution. I found out that altough handlers are marked as inherited.
They don't inheret to my owa folder.
Looking in the server of a friend of mine, he has way way more handlers then me. I
dont' have any aspx handler in the owa dir although i have it on the default web site saying inheret.
back on my asp missclick, by now i have it allready installed but it didn't do anything. No aspx for me in the owa dir.
Anyway, i added 1 handler myself but no success still the same errors.
I once had to recreate the whole iis dirs
including vdirs with a nice tut from microsoft, but i hope i don't have to do it here or reinstalling some things.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Update @ 22:05 ( Dutch Time )
- It has come to a major progress
concerning the login to webbased e-mail owa.
What i have done:
- Remove-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "owa
(Default Web Site)"
- New-OWAVirtualDirectory -OWAVersion "Exchange2007" -Name "owa (Default Web Site)"
i still get a popup instead of a nice forum based login page. There i still need help.
- And also now all files
inhereted, so aspx and so on are also in the owa dir available :)
Very small update @ 00:34
- I think i need
to recreate the /exchange dir for the form based auth, people can confirm that? And also, maybe help how to recreate it.
Since it is very hard to find out.
