Exchange 2010 OWA URL? RRS feed

Answers

  • When i go to https://mail.somethingelse.org it brings to the the IIS 7 page.

    That is correct and normal, you need to put /owa on the end to get to OWA. If you don't want to use /owa then you can follow our article showing how to simplify the OWA URL here...

  • Run:

    Set-OWAVirtualDirectory –Identity “owa (default web site)” -InternalURL https://mail.somethingelse.ORG/owa -ExternalURL https://mail.somethingelse.ORG/owa

  • No problem. You need to have enough control of your external and internal DNS to put an A record in pointing the URL you need to the IP address you need. Then, to prevent certificate error pop ups you will need to get a certificate that has the new URL in it as well as any other names you need.

    I just finished the install of my Exchange 2010 server, HUB,CAS, and MB on 1 server. I want to change the OWA url. I want the internal and external OWA url to be the same.

    Currently it is https://server1.mydomain.com/owa

    I want to change it to https://mail.somethingelse.org/owa

    Can it be done that way? If so, how?

  • That is what I thought. I changed the OWA URL to what I wanted, a made an entry in the local hosts (just to test) file with mail.somethingelse.org and pointed that to the ip of the exchange server.

    When i go to https://mail.somethingelse.org it brings to the the IIS 7 page.

    Hi,

    If you go to https://mail.somethingelse.org/owa, will you see the OWA logon page?

    I test it in my lab successfully. Change the OWA url and made an entry in hosts file.

    And https://mail.somethingelse.org it brings to the the IIS 7 page as expected.

    will testing with the host file work, of does it have to be a DNS A record? Also, just pint the A record to the IP of the Exchange server, correct?

  • I think you are misunderstanding.....

     

    I want to change the internal and external owa url

    Currently it is https://server1.mydomain.COM/owa

    I want to change it to https://mail.somethingelse.ORG/owa

    I wanted to make sure you saw the COM and ORG

  • Sorry about that, I missed that the first and last parts of the URL changed. TWHarrington gave the proper commands to use. :)

  • It the process of running "Set-OWAVirtualDirectory –Identity “owa (default web site)” -InternalURLhttps://mail.somethingelse.ORG/owa -ExternalURL https://mail.somethingelse.ORG/owa"...will OWA internally/externally break? Will mail flow break?

  • Just make sure to update your internal and external DNS records.
