Exchange WebDAV - PUT Request - 501 not implemented

Hi,

I try to create a calender-item in the personal calendar folder from an
ASP.NET application using XML-HTTP Request (WebDAV).

System: Windows 2003 SP1, Exchange 2003 SP1

Configuration IIS: Default Web Site stopped, OWA running on a second virtual
site, my application is running on a third virtual site.

OWA is configured for Integrated Windows Authentication only, my application
the very same. The application uses impersonate=true without a userName.

The problem:
Some times access succeeds. Some times access fails with exception 501 - not
implemented. The exception occurs during the attempt to open a request stream
(GetRequestStream property of HTTPRequest object) to the private calendar
folder.

thanks for your assistance

Post your code. 501 usually means that a particular HTTP method (e.g.
PUT or DELETE) isn't implemented by the server.

These are the methods from our XMLHTTPRequest class

public void Open(string Method, string Url, bool Asynch, string User, string
Password)
{
// check parameters
if (lgRequest != null)
throw new InvalidOperationException("Connection Already open");
if (Url == "" || Url==null)
throw new ArgumentNullException("URL must be specified");
System.Uri uriObj = new System.Uri(Url);
if (!((uriObj.Scheme == System.Uri.UriSchemeHttp) || (uriObj.Scheme ==
System.Uri.UriSchemeHttps)))
throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("URL Scheme is not http or https");

//if (Method==null || (Method.ToUpper()!="POST" && Method.ToUpper()!="GET"
&& Method.ToUpper()!="PUT" && Method.ToUpper()!="PROPFIND" &&
Method.ToUpper()!="PROPPATCH" && Method.ToUpper()!="SEARCH"))
if (Method==null)
throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("Method argument type not defined");

lgbIsAsync = Asynch;

lgRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.CreateDefault(uriObj);
lgRequest.Method = Method;
lgRequest.ContentType = "text/xml";
if (User != "")
lgRequest.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(User, Password);
else
//lgRequest.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
lgRequest.Credentials =
CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials.GetCredential(u riObj, "Windows
Integrated");
uriObj = null;
lgReadyState = eReadyState.LOADING;
}
// here are two points at which the exception may occur (but five minutes
later it may work)
public void Send(string body)
{
if (lgReadyState != eReadyState.LOADING)
throw new InvalidOperationException("Sending a message is not allowed at
this ReadyState");
if (body != null)
{
if(lgbIsAsync)
{
lgMsg = body;
IAsyncResult res = lgRequest.BeginGetRequestStream(new
AsyncCallback(ReqCallback),lgRequest);
lgReadyState = eReadyState.LOADED;
}
else
{
UTF8Encoding encoding = new UTF8Encoding();
byte[] buffer = encoding.GetBytes(body);
lgRequest.ContentLength = buffer.Length;
Stream stream = lgRequest.GetRequestStream(); // exception 501 (point one)
stream.Write(buffer,0,buffer.Length);
stream.Close();
lgResponse = (HttpWebResponse)lgRequest.GetResponse(); // sometimes
exception 501 at this point
lgReadyState = eReadyState.COMPLETED;
}
}
}

First: it's a PROPPATCH (sorry for communication a PUT first) and ..

If I call it from my develompment environment (Win XP, IIS 5) (not from the
IIS on the Exchange server itself) it works all time.

If I put the application into the same Web Site as OWA an exception 400 (Bad
Request) occurs. (OWA doesn't run in the Default Web Site)

Maybe its something with the configuration? But I have no more idea where to
look.
