Thanks. Useful pointer but not enough info. That only gives me information on the control groups. I have 2 services that absolutely have to startup before IIS and IIS should not do anything until those 2 services are instantiated. I have no idea whatsoever which group they belong to nor which group IIS belongs to. How do I find out this information and what do I do if they are all in the same group or something like that? I need more granular control than dealing with groups (unless I can reorder within the group or something like that).

Make IIS dependent on these two services. Just make sure that these two services aren't depending on any other service that might depend on IIS (that is, be careful not to create circular dependencies).

Thanks for that. Unfortunately for me that KB article only deals with W32. The servers I'm dealing with are 64bit.

I'll continue hunting but if you have a shortcut reference for me I'd appreciate it.

It works exactly the same way on the x64 versions of W2k3. A service dependency is a service dependency.
