After typing http://Server-name/exchange
You get the login box, after entering the correct user info you get the dreaded
HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable, after searching the web for months and tried almost all available tutorials I finally found the solution. This problem (the scenario I experienced) it relates to permissions in the windows registry. Follow the steps below to get OWA working as normal.

1. Open regedit from the command prompt, ensure you take a backup of your current registry configuration. To export, on the file menu in registry editor click export  and choose save destination

2. Locate and Right Click HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT hive and select Permissions

3. Click the Advanced button on the Permissions dialog box

4. Highlight CREATOR OWNER – make sure this is the user selected

5. Tick the box for Replace permission entries on all child objects

6. Click OK twice

7. Its best to restart the server, but if you are anxious just restart all exchange services

8. Finally Test
