Web Access Revcovery!

By venraju ·
Hi There

We are running IIS and Exchange Server Web access on the same system. Due to couple of reasons we reinstalled IIS. After reinstalling the IIS, we added Virtual director for Exchange Web Access. After adding this we are not able access the mail box by using the Web Access. We are getting the following error message:

You might not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied.

Is there any way to recover the system with out re installing theWeb Access. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Raju

Hi!

I'm never run IIS and Exchange web access, but to me this sounds like you just have to give rights to the web access dir to the user who is running the IIS process.

Check what user account IIS is running as give this user access to Web Access dirs and give the grioup users read access to same dir.

/Hasse
PS! If that dosen't work you probably need to reinstall web access so all permissions get set correctly. D.S.

First of all check the NTFS permisions to the involved directories/files. IIS double-checks the rights as follow:
Step 1: Verify if the logon credentials are correct using the given authentification protocol. This does not guarantee a file/folder access.
Step 2: For every file/folder it tryes to serve, it checks also the NTFS permissions agains the authentificated credentials in step1.
So, if all is OK, check the authentification method. Sometime, Basic (clear text) authentification is the only solution. This depends on the client browser (like Netscape).
Keep in mind that when you intall a component or an add-on (like FromPage) the security settings are changed to provide maximum security protection.
I hope this helps you.
