Outlook Web Access Administration Tool Released


I am happy to point to the download point for the new Outlook Web Access Administration Tool that our team has built.  The tool is an installable web site which allows one to tune OWA registry settings.  To quote the install point:


It provides a list of all servers in the domain and allows administration of OWA settings on all Front-end and Back-end servers. The tool ensures that settings are correctly written to the server’s registry and provides inline documentation for all configurable features.


We’d love to hear what all you think.  Have an install and let me know.

Here is another review of the tool on MSExchange.org.

  1. It doesn’t appear to work if original default IIS site has been deleted and the OWA site has a host header value. The setup shows and error dialog and there are not any obvious ways around this. The error is as follows:

    The Outlook Web Access Administration tool must on the default IIS virtual

    server. This virtual server has been deleted from this machine. Setup canceled.

  3. I have installed the tool but I can’t get it to work!

    I keep getting an access denied on ‘c:intepub’ but I have given me full control access on that directory and sub, locally and on the owa server as weel. What am I missing here ?

    By any chance is this machine Windows 2000 and a domain controller? If so, there was an "access is denied" discovered during testing on this configuration and the workaround is detailed here.

  5. Scott Mc says:

    Will this work on a Win2k/E2k environment? The readme does not mention it.

  6. Tosh Meston says:

    The tool will not work with Exchange 2000. The query we use to find the Exchange servers in a domain specifies version 6.5 or above. That’s 2003 or above.

  7. Glen Kashin says:

    Great tool, but the check boxes under customization -> modify server features -> server-wide feature support are grayed out. I cannot uncheck any settings here. I’m looking at my GPO as a possible source of the problem. Any ideas about what I should look for?
