Application Pool missing from IIS
Posted on 2007-03-26
One of the servers I inherited was upgraded from 2000 to 2003. For reasons that I don't understand, IIS 6.0 on this box does not list a default application pool although all of the websites on this box seem to work fine with the default settings.
I want to upgrade the box from ASP.NET 1.1 to 2.0 but am unclear how to create a separate 2.0 application pool if there is no primary application pool set. Any suggestions on this one? I've never seen an instance of IIS 6.0 without an application pool so I'm not sure how to proceed. I've found lots of resources for installing additional application pools off of the primary, but nothing for my particular situation.
I'll keep pushing management for a separate box to install our production application on instead and then perhaps reinstalling IIS 6.0 but in the meantime, has anyone even seen this before or have suggestions for addressing?
