On Problem 1, I've heard the same thing from numerous sites.  After they
migrated to Exchange 2000/2003, all of their OWA problems went away.
I'm sure problem #2 is similar.


OWA in 5.5 was not very robust.  It's much better in Exchange 2003. 


Why haven't you upgraded?

Subject: [exchangelist] OWA 5.5 Problems


I have server running Outlook OWA 5.5 on Win2K (Patched with W2k SP4 and
Exchange 5.5 SP4) using SSL in DMZ connecting to internal Exchange 5.5
on Win2K server (Patched with W2k SP4 and Exchange 5.5 SP4). 

Problem 1 

Recently, we occasionally need to reboot the OWA server as users have
problems accessing the OWA thru SSL. Found that the inetinfo process
hogs CPU usage to 100%.

Any idea what could be the problems ? 

Problem 2 

One or two OWA users occasionally encountered some intermittent problems
using OWA. Error is "Failed to connect to the Microsoft Exchange Server,

Any idea what could be the problems ? 

Thank you.
