OWA

By rajesh.gandhi ·
I moved exchange server to another box with new server name in the same site. Everything works fine except OWA. When I stopped old server OWA does not response, to keep OWA functioning properly I have to keep the old exchange server up all the time. Any soluation to this will be helpful.

Note: OWA is sitting behind firewall.

OWA

I am assuming this is Exchange 5.5. Goto the site container->configuration container and in the right hand pane, highlight protocols and click on permissions. See what the OWA server is set to. It is probably set to the old server, change it to the new server. For grins, let this information replicate to the other server, then reboot both servers.

Hope this helps.

Actually, the change needs to be made on the OWA server, not the Exchange server. Exchange Server looks at the OWA server as little more than just another MAPI client, so that's why the previous poster's suggestion won't affect your problem. The only reason to tell Exchange the OWA server name is if you want non-MAPI clients to use OWA for the Outlook calender, meeting requests, etc. that are not normally available to non-MAPI clients. Exchange then mails meeting requests etc. with URL that opens an OWA calander in the client's browser. Pretty neat, but not what you need.

TechNet article Q243841 (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q243/8/41.ASP?) explains how to change teh Exchange server in OWA. Doing a remove / reinstallwill also work but is probably more trouble than the registry edits mentioned in the above article.
