Exch2k7 - OWA cannot open with IE after spk3! (((found that the main reason was URLSCAN)))) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I´m running W2k3 64x spk2 with Exch2k7 STD, I follow that steps:

    - Install Exch2k7spk3 and then reboot

    - run WUpdates wich install "kb2530488"

    - configure URLSCAN - using .ini file like article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317741/en

    - configure IIS to avoid disclosure the IP like article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834141/en

    After that I´m not able to open the webmail through IE but open (without CSS styles) using Chrome!!

     

    I also tried, without luck

    ###################

    - I disable configurations from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834141/en

    - uninstall kb2530488

     

     

    Now looking the HTML code (from Chrome or FF) I found that it cannot read/open the CSS files, take a look:

     

     

    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="8.3.83.4/themes/base/basic.css">

    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="8.3.83.4/themes/base/basic_owafont.css">

     

     

    If I try to open the entire URL "https://webmail.domain.com.br/owa/8.3.83.4/themes/base/basic.css" it shows '404 error page'; but looking at the server side we can found the files at 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\8.3.83.4\themes\base'.

     

    >>>>> Does anyone idea????

  • After look at IIS Logs (C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1) I found the follow entry:

     

    2011-05-16 05:42:38 W3SVC1 192.168.0.12 GET /Rejected-By-UrlScan ~/owa/8.3.83.4/themes/base/basic.css 443 - 201.22.212.173 Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+6.0;+WOW64;+rv:2.0.1)+Gecko/20100101+Firefox/4.0.1 404 0 2

     

    I found a MS Article related with Exch5.5/Exch2k but I cannot found for Exch2k7!

  • Does anyone have 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\urlscan\UrlScan.ini' file with configs to enable/work the needs for OWA (exch2k7)?

     

    * After remove "URLSCAN filter v3.1" OWA back to works fine!

    Hi Simon,

     

    these articles (link below) only shows instructions for Exch5.5, Exch2k and Exch2k3. There is another MS KB which teach settings for use URLScan within Exch2k7 environment?

    The URLScan tool may cause problems in Outlook Web Access
