Exchange 2010 and blank OWA screen after install

Just a quick one here that I found interesting, wasn’t really a hurdle but one that I thought might be an issue for some.

After installing the latest 2010 Exchange server I ran into the usual issue of the OWA (Outlook Web Access) site giving a blank page with a url something like this /owa/auth/logon.aspx?url=https://server.domain.com/owa/&reason=0 .

The cause of this little anoying one is actually a prerequisite of Exchange 2010 and OWA that isn’t picked up as an issue during the install! Never fear there is a simple fix and here it is

  • We just need to install the RPC over HTTP Proxy feature by heading to Server Manager – Features – Add Feature then select RPC over HTTP Proxy from the list and continue through the wizard to add the feature!

Presto, problem solved!

You should then be able to reload the OWA URL to your server and get the below!

Questions in the comments :)

Cheers
