    Hi All

    From what I understand the patch for OWA 5.5 described in KB 828489 affects
    both Exchange Server and IIS.... now in my case the OWA 5.5 service is not
    on the same server where Exchange 5.5 is.

    Question

    1) Should I apply the same patch on both servers or only on the one where
    OWA is?
    2) Is patch going to do its job or was it conceived to work on a single box
    (Exchange and OWA on the same box).

    Thank you for your help!!!

  2. I'd call Microsoft PSS and ask this question of them. This would be a free
    call --it's a reasonable question to ask, and not easily found in the
    details of the security bulletin, as far as I can see.

    My own take would be apply to both boxes.

    Note the wording to the effect that if you have customized any pages in the
    OWA web, you need to back these up because they may be overwritten by the
    patched pages.
