IIS 6.0 internal page shows 'under construction' periodically

i'm new to IIS and i'm running several internal web pages on IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 servers.  I have one internal site in particular that keeps coming up 'under construction' one minute and will work fine the next.  I have looked all over the place in IIS and I don't see what the problem could be.  I have noticed that this particular site is not writing a log file even though logging is set up.  I've also been told that the server this site resides on is 'not handling ASP correctly'.  I'm not sure I know what that's supposed to mean, but ASP and ASP.net are being allowed.  Any insight is appreciated.

To clarify a little further, I am a domain admin as is the person sitting next to me (boss' boss) and right now I can access the page while he gets 'under construction'. . .

try this:
1. backup the IIS settings
2. uninstall IIS
3. install IIS
4. Load the IIS settings

Is the server configured to use a static IP address?

Do you have more than one entry in DNS for the name you are using to access this erver and if so do they point to different IP addresses?  This almost sounds like DNS round-robin or load balancing with no affinity.

Dave, I think you might be on to something.  The webserver this runs off of is one of 2 that are load balanced.  The loadbalanced network card is on one subnet for clients to talk to while the other network card (2 intel cards teamed together) is on another subnet for servers. There are no dns host entries written for this particular site though either.  I'm not sure where to start.

to add to that, now everytime I use the IP address of the first network card instead of the server name, I get right in.  What could be my issue in IIS or in DNS that causes me to only be able to get to the site by the first network card and not the 2nd?

What kind of load balancer are you using?

actually, my fault, now that I look in the right place (was looking at an old site before), this server is not load balanced.  It's an M$ virtual server guest that has 2 virtual nics, one of which has an IP I can use to get to the site right now and one that has an IP I can't use to get to the site (get a 'page not found' error).  Both IPs are listed in the website properties in IIS (I think the 2nd one was written by the system because I didn't assign it after I added the NIC) and this issue started after I added the 2nd virtual NIC.  Both NICs have default gateways, DHCP, and WINS assigned.  the virtual server host is a cluster of 2 machines. Each machine has a quad port intel nic where ports a&b are teamed and c&d are teamed.
