You create separate HTTP virtual servers for each domain.

From the help doc I give to my techs (mail.domain.com is the "example"
domain I use):

10) Create Virtual HTTP Server

ESM -> Administrative Groups -> First Administrative Group -> Servers ->
<servername> ->
Protocols -> HTTP -> New -> HTTP Virtual Server...

Set the "Name" to mail.domain.com.

Set the "Exchange Path" to the first UPN in the list for the new client.

Click Advanced, then click "Add" and add the hostheader for
mail.domain.com.

Click the Access tab, click the Authentication button, and verify that
"Integrated Windows Authentication" is checked.

Change the default domain to "\" (without the quotes)

Click "OK"

11) Create Public Folder tree

ESM -> Administrative Groups -> First Administrative Group -> Folders ->
Public Folders -> All Public Folders -> Hosting Public Folders

Create a new folder for the client. Provide a descriptive name for the
client's public folders.

Once the public folder is created, right-click on the folder and select
Properties. Click on the Permissions tab and then click on "Client
Permissions"..

Add the AllUsers@xxxxxxxxxx as an Owner, leave (or add) BRNets as Owner,
and then set the permissions for Default and Anonymous to None. If there
are any additional accounts listed, remove them from the list.

12) Map "public" Virtual Directory

For OWA to be able to display public folders, the Public Folder tree
created in step (14) must be created as a virtual directory into the
virtual server created in step (13).

ISM is Internet Services Manager. I presume Windows 2000 here. The
directions are similar for Windows 2003.

Proceed to:
ISM ->  <servername> -> mail.domain.com

Right-click on mail.domain.com and select "New -> Virtual Directory".

Click Next to get past the wizard introductory dialog.

Enter "public" as the alias, and then click "Next".

For Exchange 2000, browse to the public folder via the M: drive:

        M: -> BRNETS.COM -> PUBLIC FOLDERS -> Hosting Public Folders ->
Client

For Exchange 2003, browse to the public folder via:

        \\.\BackOfficeStorage -> brnets.com -> Public Folders -> Hosting
Public Folders -> Client

Click "Next".

Click "Next" again.

Click "Finish".

You may receive an "Access Denied" permission error. That is perfectly
OK.

13) Create application for ExchWeb\bin (not needed on Exchange 2003
Servers)

Proceed to:
ISM ->  <servername> -> mail.domain.com -> ExchWeb -> bin

Right-click on the Bin virtual folder, and then click Properties.

On the Virtual Directory tab, click Create, and then click OK.

Close ISM.

We have multiple child domains and want to use one as the default.  How
is this done?

No. Just "\".

I put this at the end?  E.g. default domain = domain\

Where it has your default domain, put "\" (without the quotes).

Use ESM for this - not ISM.

http://www.MSExchange.org/

Hello I am having an issue with OWA for Exchange 2003 Standard Edition.
I am currently running Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003 Server Enterprise.
I have multiple domains and I am trying to enable the portion of OWA
where you don't have to add the domain in the logon box, but its not
working. I have added domain users to logon locally to the Exchange
server and that did not work. I also went into system manager and HTTP,
Exchange Virtual Dir and the Exchange Dir and went to access,
authentication and basic Auth is checked and integrated windows auth is
checked.  In the default domain, I have my domain name there. I do not
have a front end exchange server. I am just configured as a backend with
OWA and IIS installed on the backend. Help!
