How to brand OWA in Exchange 2013

Jeff Guillet wrote an excellent post on his EXPTA {blog} on how to brand the OWA logon page with the CAS server name which is perfect when testing load balancing solutions. You can find this post here: http://www.expta.com/2010/03/how-to-brand-owa-2007-and-2010-with.html. For testing OWA in Exchange 2013 the process in somewhat similar. On the Exchange 2013 Client Access server, navigate to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\FrontEnd\HttpProxy\owa\auth directory and open the logon.aspx page with (for example) Notepad.

In this file, scroll down to the <div class=”logonContainer”> section and add the servername text just before the <div class=”signInInputLabel” id=”userNameLabel” aria-hidden=”true”> section.

Save the file and in your browser navigate to the Exchange 2013 Client Access Server:

I’m pretty sure this is not supported, and you’ll lose the changes after an upgrade, but for testing purposes it’s perfect.
