    transitioning Exchange2003 to 2007

    Hi all,

    I am halfway through transitioning Exchange 2003 to 2007, and need a little help with regard to the OWA part! we shall say that the 2003 box is called Exch and the new 2007 box is called Exch1. At present Exch has a fixed IP and Exch1 is using DHCP. When I decommission Exch the new box (Exch1) will take on the IP of Exch.

    The mailboxes that i haven't moved all work fine through outlook and OWA, the mailboxes I have moved work fine with Outlook but OWA is causing me a few problems. The internal URL works but with a certificate error (I shall concentrate on that later), but i am a little confused with regard to the external URL.

    Obviously at present the external URL isn't working, but what do I need to do in order for it to work?

    Is it a case of let SWGFL know the name of the new box or will DNS sort out this problem when the IP address is reassigned? This side of helping run a network isn't my forte and all and any help will be much appreciated.

    regards

    Manick

    The hole in the firewall for your email server will almost definitely have been mapped to an ip address rather than a hostname so your exchange box should become accessible from the outside the moment its ip is changed to take over from the old one.

    OK,

    I sorted the certificate problem (by turning off SSL!), internally, no problems with OWA and outlook, however, external connections are getting the:

    '403 -forbidden: access is denied, You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.'

    error. This page appears instantly as soon as I click on the email link, there is no prompting for a username or password. Obviously I've not got something enabled authentication wise, I can only assume that it is something to do with the IIS server website configuration. Any ideas which setting I need to be changing anyone?

    Many thanks

    Manick

    Where abouts? on the OWA part of IIS or on the Exchange management console in the client access part (already enabled)?

    BTW thanks for the help!

    When you go to OWA in IE do you get to a login screen similar to this one - https://exchange.sandi.net/CookieAut...email&reason=0

    or do you just get a box up prompting for a username and password?

    do you see this? http://www.apsu.edu/computer/images/EXINFO1.jpg

    Internally I get the login box as in your link (the default Exchange login), trying to access from external I get the error message straight of the bat, no prompts for login.

    so you dont get a box like this?



    If you go into IIS, right click default website, go to the security tab then the first edit button on that tab. is allow anonymous access ticked? if no tick that.

    Hi Z,

    Thanks for this, I am using IIS 7 so the setup is slightly different. Authentication is already set to anonymous access, I have also just set authorisation rules to authentication, I'll give it 5 minutes to filter through and try that, assuming I'm in the right place!

    ah didn't think then, what is the external address for your OWA?

    If it doesn't work send some screen shots of your security settings in IIS.

    Hi,

    I 'm now at the stage where I get the OWA login page, I obviously have to have SSL enabled (previously I'd disabled it to clear the certificate error, probably a schoolboy error, but IIS isn't my thing) in order for it to work, so now I'm back to the issue of the certificate error and also I can't login with my credentials!!, I'm getting there a step at a time.

    Thanks for your help last night Z.

    Cheers

    Manick

    static ip ?

    can't you create or use another static ip and make sure that the firewall(s) if any are not blocking it on the relevant ports and get your ISP to allow it external access on those 2 key ports ?

    also found this - not sure if this is any help or not but thought it was worth while posting :

    Publishing Exchange 2007 OWA, Exchange ActiveSync and RPC/HTTP using the 2006 ISA Firewall (Part 1)

    FYI - there are parts 1 ( the first page ) all the way through to part 7 - which you will see when you go to the page.
