How to View Properties of an Outlook Web Access Virtual Directory

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-16

This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to view the properties for a Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access virtual directory or for virtual directories in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

You can use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to view these properties. If you use the Exchange Management Shell to view the properties for an Outlook Web Access virtual directory, the information returned is a subset of the information that is available. For example, if you use the Get-OWAVirtualDirectory command to view properties, Exchange returns the following information:

  • Virtual directory name
  • Server name
  • Exchange server version

You can also retrieve information for a specific virtual directory on a specific server by using the parameters that are available for the command. For more information about the Get-OWAVirtualDirectory command parameters, see Get-OwaVirtualDirectory.

If you use the Exchange Management Console to view the properties for an Outlook Web Access virtual directory, you will be able to view a complete set of properties for the Exchange server that you are on.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and membership in the local Administrators group for the target server.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

The exact steps that you perform when you complete this procedure by using the Exchange Management Console depend on the following:

  • Whether you are running the original release (RTM) version of Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2007 SP1.
  • Whether you are running the Mailbox server role on the computer that is running the Client Access server role.

For detailed information about these differences, see Managing Outlook Web Access Virtual Directories in Exchange 2007.

  1. In the Exchange Management Console, locate the virtual directory that you want to view by using the information in step 2 or step 3.

  2. If you are running the Mailbox server role on the computer that is running the Client Access server role, do one of the following:

    • To view an Exchange 2007 virtual directory, select Server Configuration, select Client Access, and then click the Outlook Web Access tab. The default Exchange 2007 virtual directory is /owa.
    • To view a legacy virtual directory, select Server Configuration, select Mailbox, and then click the WebDAV tab. The default legacy virtual directories are as follows: /Public, /Exchweb, /Exchange, and /Exadmin.
  3. If you are not running the Mailbox server role on the computer that is running the Client Access server role, select Server Configuration, select Client Access, and then click the Outlook Web Access tab.

  4. In the work pane, select the virtual directory that you want to view, and then click Properties.

  5. In the virtual directory properties dialog box, select the tab that contains the properties that you want to view.

  6. View the properties that you want to review, and then click OK.

  • To view properties for all Outlook Web Access virtual directories in all Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites on all computers that have the Client Access server role installed in an Exchange organization, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory
    
  • To view properties for an Outlook Web Access virtual directory on the default IIS Web site on the local Exchange server, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory -identity "<Exchange Server Name>\owa (default web site)"
    
  • To view properties for all Outlook Web Access virtual directories on an IIS Web site on a specific Exchange server, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory -server <Exchange Server Name>
    
  • To view the values of the properties for every Outlook Web Access virtual directory in all IIS Web sites on all Client Access servers in an Exchange organization, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory | format-list
    

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-OwaVirtualDirectory.

  1. In the Exchange Management Console, click Server Configuration, and then click Client Access.

  2. In the work pane, select owa (Default Web Site), and then, in the action pane, select Properties.

  • To view properties for all Outlook Web Access virtual directories in all Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites on all computers that have the Client Access server role installed in an Exchange organization, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory
    
  • To view properties for an Outlook Web Access virtual directory on the default IIS Web site on the local Exchange server, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory -identity "<Exchange Server Name>\owa (default web site)"
    
  • To view properties for all Outlook Web Access virtual directories on an IIS Web site on a specific Exchange server, run the following command:

    Get-OWAVirtualDirectory -server <Exchange Server Name>
    
  • To view the values of the properties for every Outlook Web Access virtual directory in all IIS Web sites on all Client Access servers in an Exchange organization, run the following command:
