SBS 2003 and OWA

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

We had another site with OWA having issues and I am wondering if this was a problem with maybe a update that came down or was actually just something that came up. But they was getting the 500 error and Site busy from the outside when OWA was tried to go to. What they ended up doing was running this

We had to sync IUSR and IWAM


Used this piece of flotsam


We used the /inetpub/AdminScripts for this.


The syntax we used:

cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/anonymoususerpass “f00”

cscript adsutil.vbs get w3svc/anonymoususerpass (reports correct password)


cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/wamuserpass “f00”

cscript adsutil.vbs get w3svc/wamuserpass (reports correct password)


To sync the passwords with IIS we used:

cscript.exe synciwam.vbs -v


2nd time through it worked

Til later just Roger
