I have experienced problems with IIS Lockdown on an Exchange 2000 Server, particularily effecting Public Folder permissions.  This has been posted as a previous question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_20789639.html

with regards to the permissions error, but at that point I didnt know the correlation between the two.

I would like to post this question to get the best recommendation/instructions for using IIS Lockdown on an Exchange 2000 server.

p.s. I know most people would prefer not to run it, but I think this is essential to resolve, just think of the Small Business Server users who should run it as they are using Exchange and ISA on the same box.

Thank-you D

I must point out that the line that reads

NOTE: This article refers to issues with Exchange 2000 and Exchange Server 5.5 when you apply the IISlockdown tool version 1.0. Microsoft recommends that you download the latest version of the IIS lockdown tool

Isn't strictly true, I've seen some of these errors with v2.1.
Do you know if this article actually works, especially with regards ot the M drive permissions?

to my knowlege, yes, it works. Let me see if I can find docs on 2.0 and 2.1. Also, for future reference, I wouldn't put iis lockdown on exchange at all, it can be unpredictable, especially during a restore.
