IIS Configuration Issue. Under Construction Error

Windows 2003, IIS 6.0 All SPs. I host my own DNS.

Problem: access to http://<domain name> brings up "Under Construction message". No entries in error logs.

Anonymous access OK to http://www.<domainname>. However, access to http://<domainname> results in "Under construction" error.
All necessary IISMgr>Webservice Extensions are enabled (WEBDAV is prohibited as I do not have it installed).

In DNS, there are host headers for www.<domain name> and for <domain name>.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

>>In DNS, there are host headers for www.<domain name> and for <domain name>.
You mean in IIS, not in DNS right?

Try these two links, replacing domainname.com by your domain name:
http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch?name=domainname.com&type=A
http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch?name=www.domainname.com&type=A

Do they both return the same IP?

What is your under construction page? An ISP page or one that you guys have in IIS?

I'm sure it found the DNS servers, but did it output the proper IP address for both?
Also, what about that under construction page, where does it come from?
And last, you did set BOTH domain.com and www.domain.com in IIS as host headers for port 80?

OK. DireOrbAnt. I figured out the problem. It seems that AD integrated DNS does not like to have Host (A) records of the DNS servers listed in the subdomains (under a virtual domain). When I deleted them, I was left with just the (name Server) records.

Also in each DNS domain account, I had a WWW record pointing to the IIS server. This was fine, except it appears that DNS also needs/wants a HOST (A) record pointing to the same server.

All is well.

Thanks for the help.
