Undoing removal of anonymous access to default web site

    We have SBS 2003 Premium fully patched, and ISA 2004 running in Proxy only
    mode with a single NIC going through an external firewall.

    I wanted to restrict internet acccess to the default web site, so I unticked
    'Allow Anonymous Access' in the Directory Security | Authentication and
    Access Control tab. I got a screen 'Inheritance Overrides' listing
    default.htm,Exchadm,Exchange,exchange-oma, Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync, OMA
    and Public as Child Nodes which also dfined the value of 'UNCPassword', so I
    selected them all, and clicked OK. I then got a longer list of files (I
    believe) with a similar or identical description, so I selected all them and
    did OK.

    Apparently not a good idea, as now My Outlook Web Access consistently gives
    me a 'You could not be lgged on to Outlook Web Access' and refuses all
    attemptrs, even domain admins. This applies whether or not I come in from
    the internet, or on the internal network.

    So I re-ticked the Allow anonymous access box, but that by itself is not
    enough as I get the same error. I have stopped and started the default web
    site, and done an iisrestart, but still cannot login to owa.

    I've been unable to find a specific KB stating how to re-establisgh the
    permissions, thus this query.

    ANyone able to help???
