How to allow file access through OWA on SBS 2008

By default file access is already enabled on OWA for public and private computers on SBS 2008. You just need to do a few things on the SBS 2008 server to get it working properly.

  1. You can check that with Exchange Management Console, Server, Client Access, right pane OWA, Properties, tab Public Computer File Access and Private Computer File Access:

  2. However, you will need to add the server name(s) and the internal domain name on tab Remote File Servers before you are able to access file shares through OWA:
  3. Click the button Allow….:
  4. Type the name of the server (or servers if you have member servers with file shares) and click Add:
  5. You can also add the Companyweb in the File Servers Allow list. Click OK when you are finished:
  6. Select button Configure to add the internal domain name:
  7. Type the name of the local AD domain name and click Add:
  8. Click OK, and another OK to close the OWA properties. In the OWA, Documents, Open location you just type companyweb for the Companyweb:

  9. You will have to type \\servername\share to get the contents of the share:
  10. Of course the user will have to have the proper permissions to be able to access files in a share.
