OWA fails to Authenticate with AD in SBS 2003 - Failure with OWA

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Ashwin @ Sumix, Nov 2, 2005.

  1. Hey all, I dont know if this is the right area, if not I can post this into
    the correct area.


    i got a quick question, that I have spoken to a few people about, and no-one
    seems to know the answer to this, so I was hoping you might be able to shed a
    little bit of light on it for me.

    I have seen this happen a few times, people running Windows 2003 SBS Server
    with Exchange configured, we can not use OWA with all the latest service
    packs.

    When the OWA page is accessed internally or externally, it will not
    authenticate the user including the Admin’s account. Via

    http://servername/exchange
    or
    http://website/exchange

    Hence the page loads correctly and you put in the users details including
    the following form:

    Username and password
    Domain\username and password
    Domain.local\username and password

    It just simply states – You can not be logged in. Please check with
    Admin...etc

    However you can log into the Server and go to remote desktop and do all the
    normal functions regarding authentication. It only happens when you go to
    access OWA via the browser.

    I have already recreated the OWA Files using KB article 280823 Method 1 for
    Exchange Server 2003. Checked all permissions for the Server, and everything
    seems okay…

    Any idea’s?

    It could be something to do with the whole Sharepoint Package, not sure, or
    a Exchange Repair? Although it seems to run with authenticating with the AD
    Possibly even DNS?

    If anyone has come across this is would be great to hear from you.

    Thanks in Advance

    I'm assuming you are talking about SP1 Installed and not working?

    Have you installed the Share Point Services on SP1?
    (Did it fail)

    Also Try logging in as Domain\User

  4. Hey thank you for that, it worked for the Admin account, I havent however
    managed to test the other accounts.

    My next issue is that when the interneral workstations try to access the
    companyweb page it displays "You are not authorised to view this page" even
    though security is not enabled on the page itself within IIS.

    Anyideas ?
