Outlook Web Access Login Problem - Error: Access is denied ??

Post by ToaD » Sun, 25 Apr 2004 13:51:53

I have just successfully installed Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 on a
Windows 2003 Server box. The server is called UCEXCH and is part of my AD
domain. I installed Exchange on a seperate server from my domain controller

Clients are having problems accessing Outlook Web Access via a web browser.
From inside my internal network, when clients type in
http://UCEXCH/exchange/username, they receive three password prompts and
then an error message appears stating "Error: Access is Denied." I have also
tried http://ipaddress/exchange/username and the SAME thing happens -3
password prompts and then the error.

What the heck is wrong? Our clients do not have any issues connecting with
the normal Outlook client.

So far none of the MS support articles have helped.

I have:

1. Checked that the "Authenticated Users" group have the correct permissions
in C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\exchweb
2. Tested all security settings in IE 6 from Low to medium - Clearing cache
3. Verified all IIS settings, as per the MS knowledge base articles

I am lost.

I used to work with Exchange 2000 and had no problem setting up OWA. Can
anyone help? This is driving me mad.

Any suggestions, comments or advice welcome.

I had the same problem when I upgraded to Exchange 2003.
I think my problem existed because my old server was a
domain controller and the new one is not. My users now
have to type in their usernames in the
domainname\username format and then the password. My
users were then able to log into OWA. It sucks and I am
currently searching for a way around this but I haven't
found anything so far.
