    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.

    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
    192.168.10.2192.168.238.1192.168.216.1192.168.10.128. The record should point
    to 192.168.10.2.

    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.

    Re: I have lost Outlook Web Access - FAO Susan Bradley

    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.

    Re: I have lost Outlook Web Access - FAO Susan Bradley

    Hi Ace,

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I had not even thought of using a backup, and yes I do have a backup prior
    to the deletion. However, I have never restored that kind of data before and
    it will not let me restore IIS on it's own, and I do not want to overwrite
    other things - is it possible to do this?

    Thank you,

    Vicky

    Vicky,

    Since you deleted a web application, you deleted its reference in the
    Metabase, which is what IIS uses to store it's settings. The system state
    will restore those settings, that is provided you didn't also delete the
    actual files related to the app (in program files, etc). If you did, then
    you can also restore those specific files. I don't know exactly what you've
    deleted, but if it was JUST in IIS, then a System State restore will fix it,
    from what I'm gathering from your explanation.

    Re: I have lost Outlook Web Access - FAO Susan Bradley

    Yes, it was just the IIS information that I deleted, nothing more, so thank
    you very much for that idea.

    Just one question, I get an Active Directory warning when I click on the
    files to restore in System State - will I overwrite AD if I go ahead with
    this?

    Thank you,

    Vicky

    Depending upon what exactly you deleted and where you may be able to restore
    the IIS "metabase" files. Note that IIS7 doesn't have a metabase per-se
    anymore but this article may give you some ideas:

    http://blogs.iis.net/robert_mcmurray/archive/2009/08/22/the-end-of-metabase-corruption-r-i-p.aspx

    I am not an expert on IIS7, so backup first. You may also want to post into
    the SBS2008-specific group, instructions for joining it are here:

    If you only have one domain controller in the domain, eg the SBS, then no,
    you don't want to restore it, especially if the system state backup is a
    week old, which I assume since your first posting date. It will overwrite
    current data. If you have added a replica DC, then you can go ahead and do
    it. I believe you only have the SBS server and it's the only server, so to
    speak (as in domain controller), so I suggest not to run the restore.

    As far as restoring IIS7, the metabase no longer exists. I know I mentioned
    it was there earlier, but I forgot you are on SBS2008. II7 uses an XML
    configuration file called applicationHost.config. Read that first link Al
    Williams posted. It's a good article on II7. You can follow his suggestions
    to post to the SBS2008 Connect forum regarding this issue. There are
    qualified folks that can help you with SBS2008 and restoring IIS7. As I said
    earlier, I do not know the ramifications of restoring IIS7 on SBS 2008,
    since SBS has numerous features that use web services.

    Keep in mind, the longer you wait, and start a new post elsewhere, the
    longer it will take you to get up and running. I feel your best option is to
    call PSS. They'll have it done in a jiffy. Otherwise, you can post to the
    SBS2008 Connect forum.

    Well, I managed to restore IIS and when I visit the OWA page it lets me log
    in, but then I get this error:
    Cannot connect to the Remote Web Workplace site. To continue, contact your
    network administrator.
    I have tried the fix explained here:
    http://www.c7solutions.com/blog/2009/01/remote-web-workplace-not-operating-in.aspx
    but this did not work. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.
    Thank you,
    Vicky
