I have a fresh install of IIS 6 over a win2003 SP1 server. I try to run a web site, and the only answer I get is "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)" The server is a secondary server inside the local network, planned for hosting an intranet.
I'm not used to "first steps" config with IIS 6, having been on IIS 5 until today.
The website is configured to answer on its IP (10.0.0.4) on port 80. No hostnames have been set (should they have been ?).
In IIS manager if I try to browse, I get the same thing.
Same result on the server itself with http://localhost/
The very strangest: I had it working yesterday (dont't know why, though) but this morning, after SP1 and reboot, the problem is back.
What's worse, I'm riddled also by KB916595 (server blue screen and reboot when modifing IIS parameters, apparently)
There is a fix... but on patching, it gives an error about updatebr.inf not being valid... congratulatiosn MS...
