Cannot access SBS 2003 Remote Web Workplace
Posted on 2006-11-01
I am currently using Windows SBS 2003 SP1 and am having problems accessing the remote web workplace.
I have read through almost all of the articles with people having this issue however mine seems to be a little different.
When I go to Add/Remove programs and then to SBS 2003 setup, there are the three components listed: Server Tools, Exchange Server, and Fax Services.
There is a check mark next to both Exchange Server and Fax Services, but a 4 dotted line next to Server Tools.
When I click it the drop down menu only says "None" or "Install"
This is where is gets odd...
When I select "Install" I can choose options for the following: Intranet, Monitoring, Networking, Administration, and Client Deployment
All of them have an option for "Install" except for "Intranet" and "Networking", these two only have an option to remove.
When I try to remove or install any of these components I receive the following error with a red bubble with a white X next to "Server Tools"
"An error occurred while creating virtual directories in Internet Information Services (IIS). Manually create a test virtual directory, and then retry installing IIS from Add/Remove Windows Components."
So, in short, it looks as if there are problems with the Intranet component but I cannot reinstall it because of the errors I am receiving.
Does anyone have any suggestions anyone has before I try to go through the hassle of trying to reinstall IIS in an attempt to fix the problem?
