Hi everyone

I am having this never-ending problem. On the Ready to Install page in the
Setup wizard, I continue receiving this prompt 'Installing Virtual Server
Administration website requires IIS World Wide Web service to be installed
and the IIS Admin service to be running. You can go back and change your
feature selection or run setup again after installing IIS.' This is despite
the fact that I have made sure that the World Wide Web service is enabled.
However, I have been unable to find instructions on how to run the IIS Admins
service. I am completely stuck on this one and my MCITP practical exam is
looming ahead. Please anyone do let me know how to troubleshooting this
problem.

Thank you

Hello DEE,

If you have IIS installed on the client check under services.msc if the IIS
Admin service is started and set to automatic.

Dee,

Make sure that you actualy did install Web Server role:
Win 2008 - Web server role must be installed
Win 2003 - Add/Remove Programs, Windows components

Hi Meinolf

I ran services.msc from Run and found that IIS Admin had been set to
Automatic and had already been started. Despite this, I still got the prompt
telling me to install the World Wide Web service and start IIS Admin. I now
know I have met both conditions. If you could give me more advice, please.

Thanks for the reply. I was forgetting to state that I was installing Virtual
Server in Windows XP. What is the XP equivalent of the Web Server role?

Hello DEE,

It is not a file, the services console you can open with Start, run and then
type "services.msc" without the quotes. Now the services management console
opens, here scroll down to "IIS Admin Service".

You said it was previously installed on this machine? Was the machine
re-imaged or reinstalled? Or did you try to upgrade it?

Are you trying to change the port? Under Internet Information Service
console, does the default website show up and shows as running? Maybe
there's a port conflict?

Take a look at the tech guide for this product. Go through and check out the
minimal requirements and make sure we didn't miss anything.

The machine was re-installed since the system hard drive had been cleaned
using the wipe command by accident and then formatted in the WinXP Setup
menu. It has .NET 2.0 and IIS World Wide Web installed. Despite all these,
the Virtual Server 2005 Installation Wizard is still giving me the prompt.

I did not know that you can load the Internet Information Service console.
Please tell me how to bring up the console as I can only view it in the
Add/Remove Programs window when I click Windows components.

I have noticed that the Website Port box on the Configure Components page is
grayed out and it would not allow me to enter any number in. The text on the
page reads 'The installed version of Internet Information Services (IIS) does
not allow multiple web sites. The Virtual Server Administration Website will
be added as a virtual directory under the default site.'

Before I created this thread, I was trying to find the latest version of IIS
only to find IIS Manager 6.0 which was installed to no avail. Would this
problem be all to do with the version of my IIS? If so, please give me a link
to the latest IIS.

Hi Dee,

The IIS version of XP is 6, and can't be changed. The default port that VS
uses can't be or shouldn't be changed. It's a subfolder or sub-web site. So
to get to a subweb, simply type in http://yourmachinename/subwebName or
http://yourIPaddress/subwebname, whatever the name is in IIS (If forget VS's
name on top of my head).

To get to IIS console, simply go to Control Panel, Admin Tools, Internet
Information Services.

Also, I would suggest to download and install .Net3.5. It should have been
one of the Windows Update selections.

Ace
