  • Hi

    IIS has/stores the pools and services like OWA, OAB, autodiscover etc. info. if you take IIS down you will lose connectivity on your clients, OWA wont be available etc. etc.

    If you want to cycle IIS best would be to do that after hours.

  • its not recommened to have it turned off you can recylcle it that might not take even more than a minute

    Also your users might not even know any interuption because the time taken to restart the IIS is very little

  • Hi,

    In my case OWA n client related services are on separate CAS server, I am talking about IIS services on Mailbox server. Is there any dependency.

  • I believe the only dependence there would be for remote administration.

    You know that you can check the dependencies for each service yourself, right? Just run the "services.msc" MMC snap-in.
