We are trying to add the Outlook Web Access webparts to our SharePoint Server
2007 portal, but with no luck.


When we try to add som parts (inbox, calendar, contacts, etc) we only get
this error message:


Unable to add selected web part(s).
My Inbox: Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: serverContext


From the error log it says:
Failed to add webpart
   ****
   Here lies lots of murky stuff
   ****


We are runing the following:
10.0.0.11 – Windows server 2003 w/ MOSS 2007 & Exchange 2003
10.0.0.12 – Windows server 2003 w/ SQLServer 2005

You need to set up a Shared Service Provider (SSP) on the server before you can use the OWA webparts.


To set up SSP:


- open ‘SharePoint Central Admin’
- ‘Application Management’ tab
- in ‘Office SharePoint Server Shared Services’ section, click on ‘Create or configure this farms shared services’
- click on ‘New SSP’
- complete all the fields and let SharePoint create the SSP


This will provide SharePoint with the serverContext parameter needed for the webpart.


Good luck!
