The final step in the IIS virtual directory repair process is resetting permissions on the ExchWeb directory.
- Open the IIS Manager and navigate to your server -> Web Sites -> Default Web Site -> ExchWeb.
- Right click on the ExchWeb directory, click Properties and select the Directory Security tab.
- Click the Edit button found in the Authentication and Access Control section to view the Authentication Methods dialog box.
- Make sure the Enable Anonymous Access checkbox is selected; also mark off the Integrated Windows Authentication checkbox.
- Click OK. You may see a dialog box asking you if you want to override inheritances. If this happens, click Select All, followed by OK.
- Click OK a couple more times and quit IIS Manager.
Your Exchange-related IIS virtual directories should now be functional.
