exchange 2003 OWA on windows 7 asking for logon details no problems with xp any ideas
we run exchange 2003 and have done for years on windows 7 machines we have an issue where when the user clicks on the icon for owa it asks for credentials i can not figure out why as all our windows xp machines just open upwithout the credentials
can anyone throw some light on this

What browser, you need to allow it to pass through credentials (IE advanced settings) Firefox (aboout:config > something about credentials)
With FF you also need to set it to allow NTLM depending on how your auth is setup for OWA.

iwill have a look at that as an administrator it works fine so it must be permissions or something along those lines
it is using ie 8

Same deal, just check it is set to enabled under advanced settings. You can set it with GPO if it is site wide.

Make sure you have IWA on the OWA vDIR

Have you thought about upgrading to Exchange 2010? I only ask as there is a lot of extra features in OWA 2010 and its faily easy to upgrade from 2003 to 2010 - i did it only the other day!

That's a fairly sweeping statement ;-) Depends entirely on your current setup/requirements for 2010..

I must agree, although the upgrade here went smooth the left overs was something else e.g Address Lists, Outlook 2003 requires RPC Authentication to be enabled (due to default RPC Auth on Exchange 2010). There was a few other niggles which I had to work through but as of now things are working fine.

our win7 setup is still in the baby stage at the moment ironing out little niggles
im sure its something to do with security in ie but getting time to look at these things is difficult

just getting back to this issue
group policy checked and windows is passing through authentification (well it is set) results show this.
logon as admin i can check mail through owa
external link reverse proxy to our box works fine asks for credentials and then pass them through like it should
its just when a staff member tries outlook asks for credentials to access the exchange server even if i put the correct details in domain\username it refuses to let anyone access.
xp is fine

and make it part of the trusted list in GPO which I am sure it is. The pass through fail could be because it is detecting it as a not local or trusted site thanks to the proxy.

i will give it a go on monday as this is just a little issue that is niggaling my windows 7 deployment now along with the stupid librarys which i think i can fix with the library tool i picked up this weekend.
thanks for the reply synack

i have found out what is going on
we use mandatory profiles and within the profile that gets loaded is a username stuck in the registry somewhere
so when i log onto owa the exchange box thinks the user is the one stuck in the profile thus never letting anyone access owa except an admin level
if i put server\exchange\%username% it works
but i have an icon that has that command in just sits there doing nothing but if i type it it works
anyone know how to clear out this said username or any ideas on where to look.

hey, are you saying you can have owa log in automatically? I've exchange 2007 can I do that, do I need extra software or somin'.
(I inherited my exchange server and have never set one up)
