IIS 6 New Website does not Show Up in Application Installer
Posted on 2004-07-30
I have a Windows Server 2003 Web Server with two NICs. The server houses one website and one NIC is binded to it. I configured the second NIC today, created a new website and bound it to the second NIC. I can create virtual directories underneath the site and view the properties of the site with no problem.
My problem is:
We have an installer that installs a .Net application website onto web servers. I am trying to run this web installer and install the application into this new website. However, at the beginning of the install the installer lists the websites that it sees for the server you are installing on, it sees the first website (Default website) but it does not see the second. It seems as though the installer is looking at the metabase to grab the list of available sites to install to (this is a guess) and just can't see the second site.
I can't figure out why the installer is missing the site. I restarted IIS, that did nothing. I even rebooted the server, that did nothing.
How do I get the .Net installer to see the second website?
