Why can I not apply an OWA Web publishing rule that redirects users who connect to the root of the OWA Web site to an internal folder by using ISA Server 2006?

The below Microsoft article explains how to correct the following errors when connecting to the root of OWA and the requests are automatically redirect users to the Exchange folder:

  • The changes were saved, but at least one service failed to load
  • Firewall Service cannot b restarted after being stopped
  • Receive 21177 and 21209 event logs in the Application logs
