Exchange 2010 SP1 OWA Error

Not open for further replies.


We are getting the following error after logging into OWA. Prior to SP1 OWA was working fine. We have a separate CA server. The other roles are on another server. Both servers have been upgraded to SP1. The clients are working fine and so are " i" devices. OWA is the only app that is getting this error.

We have about 2300 mailboxes.

I have checked to make sure there is no host name configured in IIS under the bindings.

I have reset owa vd.

Nothing has worked so far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.





User host address: x.x.x.x
EX Address: /o=/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=
SMTP Address:
OWA version:
Mailbox server:

After talking to MS Support they had me run this command: Set-OwaVirtualDirectory " servername\owa (default web site)" -IRMEnabled $false

Replacing servername with your server name.

This solved the strange error we were getting.

Still not sure SP1 was a good idea to install just yet.



Even i had the same issue in Dev environment, but not with Prod. I had to run the same command to fix it.
