The purpose of this guide is to provide information to successfully add specific IIS 7.0 role services for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) to function properly when installed on Windows 2008.

Information Technology personnel responsible for support of the SEP environment, or Server Administrator personnel responsible for the support of IIS.

It is assumed that the personnel implementing the steps in this guide have basic knowledge of administering the Windows Server 2008 operating system.

1. An administrator privileged account must be used.

SEPM – Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
IIS – Internet Information Server
CGI – Common Gateway Interface

Excellent "usable" style of Articles being presented.
I just saw a Symantec question revolving around "IIS 7.0" and will have to go look for it.

Big "Yes" vote above.
