Dear All,
My Metabase.bin file is corrupted from antivirus program AVG and now his size is 0kb. I receive 3 errors in Application Event Log: IisInfoctrs, W3SVC, FTP service doesn't started and don't returned error.
I have to restore this file, but i haven't backup!
What is necessary to do? Is it necessary to remove IIS and reinstall it after that, and when remove is it necessary to leave COMMON FILE installed only?

Best regards,
Kiril

No, i haven't backup of Winnt, and this is a problem now! Problem is that - i begin before few weeks as sys admin in this company and before somebody was install AVG antivirus, but this program i don't why deleted everything which is contain in METABASE.BIN and after that i cannot connect IIS console to computer. IIS Admin are strating, but WWW and FTP cannot. How i can to restore metabase file? Maybe only reinstalation of IIS? And if i reinstall my server is it possible to crash it?
On server there are instlled SQL Database, and Citrix! There isn't Active Directory!
If you need of more information send it to me!

Best,
Kiril

I would unistall IIS and then re-install. I am asssuming you have a web app that needs the IIS? Once you have IIS installed, you will be able to recoonec tthe web site to the source directories. The same goes fro FTP. If you do not need the IIS. Uninstall this.

As a side note, best practice would be to have seperrate boxes fro SQL, IIS and Citirix.

AD has nothing to do with whether IIS runs
