I cannot start FTP service from Internet Information Service on one of my Windows 2000 domain server. The FTP site has the word “Stopped” by it and when I right-click the site and click Start, the server would do nothing for about 30 seconds then say “The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion”.
I have a native Windows 2000 Domain network with multiple domain controllers. I have Service Pack 2 installed. My other Windows 2000 domain servers do not have this problem. I can start and stop the FTP site on them instantly. I do not have problems with my websites from the IIS on the problem server. I can start and stop websites normally.
Here is what I have done so far trying to solve the problem:
I checked the event log. There were no errors explaining this problem.
I tried to continuously start the FTP site with no success (same error message every time).
I have deleted the FTP site and made a new one and tried to start it. No use.
I restarted the IIS and rebooted the server. No use.
The only thing I can think of that I haven’t done is uninstall IIS and reinstall it. I really don’t want to do that because my Exchange server is hosted on it and I don’t want to miss it up.
I would appreciate any suggestions. I promise to give immediate feedback. Thank you.
