padair -> Re-install OWA? (3.Jan.2008 12:21:23 PM)

I recently had an issue that killed IIS.  The .NET 1.1 SP1 update seems to knock out IIS (and it warns you) but the repair it recommended didn't work.  I since have IIS running again but I had to remove the IIS application server role and then re-add it.  Now that its added again none of the OWA/Exchange app pools or websites are there. 

Is there a simple way to get the necessary OWA/Exchange config back in IIS?  I certainly don't want to have to uninstall all of Exchange server and re-add just to accomplish this.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Paul.

If you re-install IIS, then you normally need to re-install Exchange, too (you don't need to uninstall first).  You might try this (method 3 is easiest):
but you may not find the required entries in your metabase file.

Do you know if this link (or another?) works for Exchange 2007?

This did the trick.  So if you ever screw-up your IIS/OWA config this page worked.  Just follow the Exchange 2007 steps line by line.  Worked for me.

Thanks as well!  This is just what I needed!

I will say one thing, I am all on Server 2008/Exch 2007SP1, so I also added the following commands to the end:

  • get-owavirtualdirectory -server server_name -DomainController dc_name | ? {$_.OwaVersion -eq "Exchange2007"} | remove-owavirtualdirectory -DomainController dc_name
  • new-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion "Exchange2007" -DomainController dc_name

My OWA 2003 need to be reinstalled on a New Hardware. I need to keep the same IP and FQDN, what is the best way to achieve this goal?
