OWA works internally and almost works externally....

    I have a SBS Premium 2003 installation on my main fileserver. Exchange works
    great for all my internal Outlook clients. I also have another 2003 Server
    (member server only, not AD) that is acting as my web server for several
    websites. This also is working just fine. I can run OWA successfully
    internally . I have the default website (on the SBS 2003 box) configured with
    port 8787/443 for OWA access. I can actually reach OWA externally but the
    screen display is not complete (it does not say "Loading" anywhere on the
    display), the folders on the left have no icons (just folder names) and the
    mail pane is severly scrunched left to right and top to bottom. The only
    other other thing I noticied is that I am not coming in on the SSL port
    eventhough I have SSL enabled for the website (that is internally and
    externally). If anyone has some suggestions I would be most appreciative.
    This issue has been driving me nuts for the last 2 months.

    Marina, Thanks for the post.....fix 831464 and SP1 have been installed. Would
    it do any good to re-apply 831464? I Actually have removed both IIS and
    Exchange and reinstalled them both (as of a couple of months ago). After that
    I applied the fix and SP1. What do you think??

  4. Hi Dave,

    SP1 won't install if the 831464 isn't installed first so I don't think that
    it will help you to reinstall that fix.
    But having removed IIS and Exchange is a bigger issue. Did you follow the
    kb's for that? Did you also apply the additional SBS hotfix after SP1?
    What do you mean with port 8787/443 for OWA??? OWA only needs 443.

    Can you give me the info on the KB's that are required after a IIS reinstall
    as well as the hotfix after SP1 for Exchange. I am pretty sure the required
    patches and hotfixes were loaded but I would rather be safe than sorry.
    The port situation is this, we have a dedicated Web server (Windows 2003
    Standard Server) that is using port 80 for the default website. Exchange is
    running on the SBS 2003 server so I cannot have OWA use port 80. On previous
    installations using Windows NT and Windows 2000 Server with IIS 4 & 5, I have
    used a different port for web access (hence 8787/443). If I stop my dedicated
    web server and give the OWA's default website on the SBS 2003 server port 80,
    it works fine.

    I really appreciate your input on this issue.

  6. Hi Dave,

    I never reinstalled IIS, so I can't help you with that.
    The hotfix after SP1 for Exchange can be found from here:

    Smallbizserver.Net > SBS 2003 > Service packs & patches > Exchange 2003:

    As far as I know, OWA can only run on 443.
