Problem with OWA GUI on Exchange Server 2003 and IIS 6.0

SearchExchange.com expert Brad Dinerman outlines potential causes and solutions for a missing OWA graphical user interface in Exchange Server 2003 and IIS 6.0.

I just read " No graphical user interface after OWA login." I am having the exact same Outlook Web Access (OWA) GUI problem on Exchange Server 2003 and Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0. I searched for hotfix 828847, but it doesn't seem to be installed. I don't know what went wrong and I'm really stuck now.
This may occur for various reasons depending on the version of Exchange Server that you are running, but most typically for configuration changes that occur in IIS or in the permissions of the OWA directories.

I have found that a reapplication of the latest service pack usually corrects the problem, or sometimes even a

simple reboot of Exchange Server. You can also check out Microsoft Knowledge Base article 298513, Removal of application mappings may cause an HTTP 404 error in Outlook Web Access -- although that is specific to Exchange 2000.
