I have lost Outlook Web Access

Hello all and thank you in advance for any help.

We have Windows Server 2008 and everything was fine until I
accidentally deleted the SBS Web Application site in IIS7 and now
Outlook Web Access doesn't work. I have not the faintest idea how to
get
it back again, and I have spent days trying to find out how to restore
it but with no luck.
Any help, clues, directions, anything, would be brilliant.

In desperation,

Vicky

Go into the SBS Server Console/Network/Configuration and run the Fix My
Network wizard again.

Hi AllenM,

Thank you very much for your reply. I have just run this twice, both times
it got three quarters of the way through and said 'Windows SBS Fix My Network
Wizard has stopped working...'

Thank you,

Vicky

Run the SBS BPA tool. this should show you that OWA is broken and what needs
to be done to fix it. If you have any questions regarding the results post
it here.

There was one error of interest (below) the others were about display issues
on shared mailboxes.

Header Severity Title Group Type Group Name Description
Error DNS A resource record points to incorrect IP address The host (A)
resource record points to the incorrect IP address
192.168.10.2192.168.238.1192.168.216.1192.168.10.1 28. The record should point
to 192.168.10.2.

And two other errors that may be of interest:

is set to Automatic. To disable the DHCP Server service, click Start, click
All Programs, point to Windows Small Business Server, and then click Windows
SBS Console (Advanced Mode). In the Windows SBS Console, click the Network
tab, click the Connectivity tab, and then click Stop DHCP.

I think you may need to put out a distress call to Susan Bradley. An MVP who
is very talented and knowledgable with SBS and Exchange. In SBS 2003 all you
really needed to do was rerun the CEICW to fix your OWA problem. Now with
SBS 2008 it's not quite that simple. however I would have thought that if
you were able to successfully run the Fix My Network it would have resolved
your problem. I got one more suggestion that should assist you and that is
to run the Exchange BPA also. that is located in the Exchange Management
Console under Tools. Repost this and in the field mark Attention Susan
Bradley. she is a frequent visitor here in this NG and is always willing to
help out with her expertise. Good luck.

I'm not sure of the total ramificaitons with reinstalling IIS on an SBS
(whatever version) machine, because there are other features and apps that
use it, but specifically for Exchange, check out the following article.
However, keep in mind, you will have to remove and reinstall the CAS role.

How to remove and to reinstall IIS on a computer that is running Exchange
Server 2000, 2003 and 2007
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/320202

Also, take not, the following is quoted from the article:
"If you have to reinstall IIS on a computer that running Exchange Server
2007, you must also reinstall Exchange 2007. This is to restore links to IIS
that provide Outlook Web Access functionality together with other
Exchange-related Web services such as the Availability service."

I'm just trying to point out that it is a time consuming event and requires
a bit of diligence to complete it.

Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions here.

I did consider reinstalling IIS but at the moment I'd rather save that as a
last resort.

I tried to install the Exchange BPA but it's asking me to install .net
framework 1.1 and I'm not sure if I want to do that.

If anyone knows of any other possible answers in the meantime I would be
very grateful.

Thank you,

Vicky

If the SBSBPA requires .Net Framework 1.1, then it will need it, or it can't
run. The BPA is a valuable tool for SBS.

It is unfortunate that the SBS Web Application site in IIS7 was deleted. The
applications section in IIS are the actual programs that run and perform
various functions. I can understand the reluctance in following the
procedure in the link I've provided. However, at this time, keep in mind,
OWA is non-functional, and I'm willing to bet there's a possibility that
other functions are failing because the application site is no longer
present.

If you don't have a System State and c: drive backup prior to the deletion
that you can use to restore it, then I think at this time, it may be a wise
choice to call Microsoft PSS (Product Support and Services) to assist you in
repairing your SBS installation. After all, this is a production server, and
you need to get this functionality up and running. PSS does not charge by
time. They charge a one time fee, and they will take as long as it takes to
get it working, for that one time fee.
