OT: OWA hangs on "waiting" after password input (Exchange 2010)

Environment:

  • single Exchange 2010 SP3 UR 26 server;
  • Windows 2012 R2 domain (.local)

Few days ago I started preparations for migration to Office 365 and added certificate and unified Exchange namespace to mail.mydomain.lt.

Suddenly OWA stopped working - it hangs on "waiting" after password input with no timeout.

Authentication works, because if I enter wrong password, I get:

"The user name or password you entered isn't correct. Try entering it again."

I reset OWA virtual directory with these commands:

Remove-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity 'EXCHSRV\owa (Default Web Site)'

New-OwaVirtualDirectory -InternalUrl 'https://mail.MyDomain.lt/owa' -WebSiteName 'Default Web Site'

with no success.

Any hints how to troubleshoot this issue? Or suggestions for active Exchange related community?

Hi, 

best check the iis logfiles and see what happens at the time you login. Did you try on different browsers?

Yes, I have tried with different browsers.

IIS logs show following errors:

401.2 Logon failed due to server configuration

64 - The specified network name is no longer available

and

401.2 Logon failed due to server configuration

5 - Access is denied

 

But I can not figure out how to fix it :-(

Hi,
Do you have DNS name for  http://mail.mydomain.lt/?
Have you changed all CAS URLs to point to the new name?
Best regards,
Atanas

  • Yes, I have DNS names for mail.mydomain.lt (split DNS)
  • Yes, I changed all the names to point to mail.mydomain.lt
  • Also OWA works Basic or Windows authentication, but not with Forms based authentication.
  • All users can not see each other calendars – calendars shows error „could not be updated“


 

Regards,

Rytis
