OWA login, SBS2003 premium, login issues for single user

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Shawn O'Connor, Dec 27, 2004.

  1. Running SBS2003 with ISA and OWA works fine for all my users except one. Me.
    This account is setup as administrator and was working fine until I
    connected to the network with another PC that had the same machine name and
    logged in as myself. Ever since, I cannot use OWA. The Outlook client works
    fine and no issues with other users with lesser priveleges. The Admin user
    works fine also. I suspect there is something going on with a profile or
    user SID, but don't know what to do next.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Let's say your worstation name is 'station1' with an IP address of

    From the server, do a 'ping <stationname>' and a 'ping -a <ipaddr>' and see
    what you get. You may then need to go to your DNS Manager and change the PTR
    record, and/or then run 'ipconfig /flushdns'

  3. Thanks for the response. That's not the issue though. Workstation
    hostname/ipaddress resolves just fine on the network. The IP address is
    always the same for this machine. I have long since stopped using the
    "other" workstation with the same machine name and username when connecting
    to this domain. However, the damage has been done. As an aside, and
    probably related issue, when I switched back to my current Workstation (the
    original) I was not able to login to the domain. I had to disconnect from
    the domain and then rejoin to get my account to work again. Something got
    corrupted(?) in OWA that relates to my domain user account. -- at least that
    is my best guess. RWW works fine as well for this user.
