ASP.NET does not appear as tab in Website properties even though components are installed - can it be fixed without reinstalling IIS service?

Hi, is it possible to get the ASP.net tab to appear in the Website properties config on IIS 6, without running the "configure your server" app?  We had an OWA server that needed to be reinstalled from scratch when we enabled ASP.net on it.  It messed up the Exchange part as it insisted on reinstalling IIS to get ASP.NET fully installed.

We now would like to enable ASP.net on a 2003 cluster running Exch 2003 in Active/passive - 2 nodes.  We don't want to mess up the OWA on there, but also do not want to reinstall Exchange.  The ASP.net components appear as installed on the nodes, but the tab won't appear on the website properties IIS manager.  Is there a way of enabling this without running the config server wizard, which will probably reinstall IIS?

thanks for the quick response - something else came up in the meantime however, so I haven't had a chance to look at this since.  Will let you know very soon.

We have now decided to purchase some servers to load balance our website, so will not need the solution - looks like it was the right kind of fix though, so thank you very much!
