Hi guys,

I need your urgent help. After returning to work this morning we noticed
that the HTTP access was down. When we looked at the IIS manager we saw that
the default web site and Exchange Virtual Server were both stopped. We tried
to restart them but kept failures. We then had a look at the cluster
services and noticed that the Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 had
failed. We are unable to get this to start again.

The event error we get is:

Event Type: Error

Event Category: Services
Event ID: 1013

Has anyone had this problem before and if so were you able to fix it?

A couple of days ago we proceeded to install RPC over HTTP on our Exchange
2003 cluster. After installing Windows 2003 SP1 and Exchange 2003 SP1 we
noticed that OWA was no longer working. On further investigation we found
that we had to install the patch KB841561 to get OWA running again. We did
this last night and everything appeared to be working fine. We could access
the Exchange server via Outlook 2003 and Out Web Access via SSL.

Upon returning to work this morning we noticed that the HTTP access was down
again. When we looked at the IIS manager we saw that the default web site and
Exchange Virtual Server were both stopped. We tried to restart them to no
avail. We then had a look at the cluster services and it was then that we
noticed that the Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 had failed. We are
unable to get this to start again.

We have exchange 2003 cluster with 2 nodes (Active/Passive) and the
fail over happens with out any problem for a few days. You know that wouldn’t last for long!
But after applying a ssl certificate on the servers. It worked for a few days and now the  Exchange Virtual Server (EVS) resource fails  Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 ((IMAIL) fails. (IMAIL) is the virtual server network resource name. And when I look into the event log
We have tons event ID 1013 and 1005

event ID 1013
Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 (IMAIL): Failed to get the protocol IP address and port bindings from the metabase.

event ID 1005

Please help.

I am running a Windows 2003 Server, Exchange 2003 Server Active/Passive
cluster. One node was the Active node when one of our technicians was
installing Blackberry Enterprise Server (I cannot be sure if this install is
absolutely what caused the problem I will describe, however the timing seemed
suspicious). He was unable to install the BBES because proper permissions to
it's account had not been set properly in Exchange System Manager. We have
since installed BBES and it is working properly.
The problem that occured on Exch1 that day was that the "HTTP Virtual Server
Instance 100" reported itself "Offline" and in ESM there was a red mark over
it displaying a critical system state. When I tried to put the HTTP VSI back
online, it made all other virtual services fail, and the Passive node became
the active node.
I was wondering if anyone might have an idea of where to start on this
issue. The Event Viewer does not appear to have any events realted to this,
which I found very peculiar.
Thank you in advance.

I am having some problems failing our Exchange cluster from one node to
the other and would appreciate some help.

The first node (CNODE01) is working fine but webmail stopped
functioning with SSL at some point on Monday morning. I have since
removed the certificate and I can access webmail on this system via
HTTP only.

If I try to fail over the services to the second node (CNODE02) then
they all move over but...the HTTP Virtual Server Instance 100 then
unloads itself and forces all the services back to CNODE01.

The Event Viewer reports 'The IsAlive check for this resource failed'
and error ID 1005. It also reports 'Failed to get the protocol IP
address and port bindings from the metabase.' with error ID 1013.

The metabase.xml file seems fine and if this were corrupt, as some have
suggested, then why would HTTP webmail work from CNODE01? None of the
IP addresses have changed in anyway. A recent domain controller and
DNS server installed on Friday has been removed from the network so it
can't cause any potential difficulties but then what halm would it have
done anyway?

I have been going around in circles for 2 days now trying to find a
solution. Can anyone suggest anything?

I am getting this error when I try to fail my cluster over:

Exchange HTTP Virtual Server Instance. The IsAlive check for this
resource failed.

Event ID 1005
Source MSExchangeCluster

I am running Windows 2003 SP1 on both nodes, and Exchange 2003 SP1. It
work fine on my first node but will not work on the second node.

I have tried various fixes such as deleting the High water marks for the
metabase in IIS. Copying the metabase fromn the good node to the faulty
one etc.

Thanks in Advance.

After created a new HTTP virtual server in exchange system manager for those
user with smtp domain different to the default smtp domain, there isn't
option to add 443 in virtual server property(which is disabled by default).
So manually add in 443 by using IIS manager, but SSL port always drop in a
while by system attendant service. Understanding that there is another
solution to create new virtual directory in the default HTTP virtual server
for different smtp domain, but how about using new HTTP virtual server? Or I
must create this new virtual server using IIS manager but not Exchange
System Manager. Any idea about this? Thx

I'm trying to add a 2nd OWA site to our E2K3 Front End server but so far I'm
falling at the first hurdle.

I've created a 2nd HTTP Virtual Server in ESM on the FE server and have
created the Exchange and Public virtual directories below it....but the
server will not come online. A small white circle is shown over the globe
icon next to the HTTP Virtual Server and it does not appear in IIS 5.0.

I've tried restartin IIS, System Attendant and even the server but still it
won't show in IIS (although as I've said...it hasn't even come online in
ESM). The IP address I've assigned to this server is unique, the port is 80
(doesn't let me select another port for TCP and I'm not using host headers as
we use SSL.

I've even tried adding a new Virtual Directory to our current HTTP Virtual
Server in ESM but this isn't appearing in IIS either? The 1st OWA site is
working fine as the Default Website so I don't really want to mess with this.

Your help will be much appreciated as this is driving me crazy now!

My webmail (HTTP virtual server) won't start. All I get in any of the event
logs is
"Exchange HTTP Virtual Server: The IsAlive check for this resource failed. "
with an error code of 1005.

The thing is, nothing has changed since Exchage SP2 a couple of months back.
The cluster service log as this to say: (it's a bit long)

Thank you.

The exchange HTTP virtual server Instance 100 resource remains in failed state after failover. What do I need to do to fix the problem.

I have just installed exchange 2003 Sp2 on a two node active/passive 2003
server cluster and after I have finished the Exchange HTTP Virtual Server
Instance 100 always fails.

In the logs there is a lot of this error:
Faulting application inetinfo.exe, version 6.0.3790.1830, stamp 42435bec,
faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.2.3790.1830, stamp 424377d2, debug?

Anything anyone can think of?? please

Hi

I have just built a 2 node A/P and am struggling with getting the SMTP
virtual instance to start.

I have trawled through the newsgroups and found similar issues but never a
fix.

The error that I am receiving is :

SMTP Virtual Server Instance 1 (servername): The IsAlive check for this
resource failed.
For more information, click http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp.

Event ID : 1005

I have checked in ESM and the Default SMTP server is correctly bound to the
Exchange VS IP address.

I'm kinda stuck as to were to start with looking for more info on this one,
can anyone point me in right direction ?

Cheers in advance

Nik

to mail direct remove plz.nospam. from the email address.

I am working with a client on setting up his Exchange cluster. I have been
asked to configure everything so that they can access OWA from outside the
network via SSL on 2 different fqdns. For example:

webmail.domain1.com

and

webmail.domain2.com

I've come up with a solution that seems to work, but I just want to make
sure it is proper / supported / etc.

What I've done is:

1) Take the Exchange cluster group offline.
2) Create a new IP resource.
3) Add the new IP resource as a dependency of the existing Exchange Virtual
Server Network Name resource.
4) Bring the Exchange cluster group online.
5) Create a new HTTP Virtual Server in System Manager, binding it to the new
ip and creating an SSL identity for it at the same time.
6) Add a new HTTP Server instance to the cluster using the new HTTP Virtual
server with the only depency being the System Attendant.
7) Add the proper SSL cert in IIS Manager to the new HTTP server.
8) Test.

I can logon to the new OWA site, send mail, etc.

Is the correct way to go about it? Am I forgetting anything?

Any comments or suggestions are most appreciated.

Thanks,

RS

I'm using Exchange 2003 and have created two new HTTP virtual servers (for additional domains). These work OK.

I am now trying to create another HTTP virtual server, but I can't get it working. It shows up in ESM with a white circle in the icon (i.e. not started) and it doesn't create the site in IIS manager.

Any suggestions why this virtual server won't start and work with IIS?

Dear Coleagues,

I have a problem that I haven't managed to solve. When I try to start (in system manager) the Exchange virtual server I receive the following message:
"The process can not accessthe file because is being used by another process.
Facility:win32
ID no: 80070020
Exchange System Manager"

Does anyone have any ideea of what is wrong.

hi All, I have a problem with my exchange server. We run OWA on the server as well and the HTTP virtual server has been stopped. when I try to restart it I get the following error message.

Cannot create a file when that file already exists
Facility: Win32
Id no: 800700b7
Exchange system manager

Has anyone seen this before, and more importantly does anyone know the solution. Any suggestions would be really helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Is it possible to create a second HTTP virtual server for OWA FBA with another new internal IP address? If so, what is the procedure?

My thought is, I create a new HTTP virtual server for exchange, enable the OWA FBA, then in the IIS, save the configuration to a file from the default website, then import this configuration to the new virtual directory, change this to a new IP, port and another ssl certificate.

is this correct?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Hi All. I have a problem with my exchange server. We run outlook web access
from the server and the HTTP virtual server has been stopped, when I try to
restart it I get the following error message

Cannot create a file when that file already exists

Has anyone else already come across this problem, and if so how do I get
round it. I have checked security permissions and they are correct.
any ideas would be really helpful.

Hi,

I have recently installed Exchange Server 2003 on a machine with
Windows Server 2003 Standard and I'm running into some problems.

First, I was looking around the IIS Manager and I noticed that the
default web site name was something else than the one I expected and,
since I was trying to get a better suited URL for OWA (something like
mail.site.com instead of www.site.com/exchange) I have also deleted the
Exchange, Exchweb and the other virtual directories. The other vdirs
were actually redirects to some other sites. I have deleted the
"aspnet_client" folders that were living in those vdirs since, I
though, there were some folders I did not need.

Right now, the default HTTP virtual server is not available since there
is no "Exchange" virtual directory. I have tried restarting Exchange
System Attendant (I read that the vdirs will be automagically
reconfigured when this service will be restarted) and the WWW
Publishing service and I have also restarted the server and nothing
happened.

I am trying to configure a second HTTP Virtual Server, but there are
some problems with SSL, meaning that after I ask for a new server
certficate (the server is also an Enterprise CA) and configure all the
details from the Directory Security tab in IIS manager, the "View
Certificate" button is still disabled. There are no other sites that
are configured for SSL.

I have also tried the advice at:

http://blogs.technet.com/evand/archive/2004/02.aspx

but the problem was not solved.

I believe I should be removing all the SSL bindings on the server, but
this eludes me and I don't know if this is the answer to my problems.

I'd be extremely thankful if somebody could tell me what I should be
looking for or what to do.
