Can CWA run on the same server as Exchange 2007 CAS? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I already have a OWA infrastructure built out utilizing 2 -Exchange 2007 CAS server roles along with an ISA 2006 front end as the reverse proxy. Can i install Communicator web access onto these same servers? Also utilizing ISA 2006 as a reverse proxy? Any feedback would be appreciated.

  • In theory, you could do it, but I don't recommend it. E2K7 is 64-bit, and all the OCS components are meant for 32-bit OS. But you could probably get it to work on the 64-bit.

     

    If you do that, you'll need to allocate a new IP address on the CAS for CWA. And yes, you can use ISA 2006 to publish CWA.

     

    However, I would really recommend just putting CWA on a different box - like an existing web server running IIS on 32-bit Windows Server.

  • Technically yes.. but its not recommended..

    CWA is not supported on any server having IIS running for any other application. No wonder if MS support professional will raise some concern if you stuck into problem.
