If you have a farm of owa servers, it may be worth it to apply the poor
man's failover method.  In DNS create an alias "SierraMail" or whatever.
Write or steal an "Is-Alive" script that removes dns entries for each owa
server that does not respond to http or https commands every minute or so.

Subject: Redundant OWA


Exchange 5.5 OWA

This is a dedicated OWA server that has only OWA component installed. It is
set up to connect to a Exchange server. The name of the server can be found
at the MSExchangeWEB registry key at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeWEB\Parameter
s\Server

Is it possible to add one more Exchange server names there to let it be kind
of redundant? In the event of failure of the primary Exchange server that
the OWA is connecting to, the OWA server can pick up the secondary Exchange
server. Let me know. 

Thank you.

Phillip
