Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 Ent Edition  -

I installed this OS weeks ago and now am installing Virtual Server 2005 r2, so I need to install "IIS" for web administration.

I go to add/remove and try to add the component, but it says "The file 'convlog.exe' on Service Pack 2 CD-ROM is needed" which obviously isnt' either one of the install CDs.

Thanks so much for any guidance on installing IIS.

So I guess I am asking how I load IIS?  Where is it?

Uh... have you tried using the server roles wizard to add the webserver role to your machine?

Due to MS's new security initiative W2K3 comes locked down and no unneccessary services/features will be started unless the administrators chooses to activate it...

Don't use the add remove option; there may be other dependancies required, the wizard will configure it correctly

Uh.......that was a good try and I appreciate your attempt.

Unfortunately, using the 'add server roles' did exactly the same thing (although with fancier graphics) and gave the same message as listed in my original question.   It was as if it is the wizard version of exactly what I did manully through 'add/remove' programs.

Any other ideas, or better yet........real experience with loading IIS on this particular OS version appreciated.

- many thanks.

Did you apply any service pack after installing the OS? The error you're getting may be caused by your cached service pack being no longer available.

I'd suggest reinstalling the service pack, then try to add the IIS server again.

This problem is not likely to be an IIS issue, if you want help no need to get snide. It doesn't help you in anyway. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

Uh........I only ran normal updates after OS installation.  No additional service pack.  I see maybe you are suggesting a reinstall of the OS?  Not familiar with the snide utility, so will not attempt to utilize.  I appreciate getting complete 2 cents, even though 'penny for your thoughts' comes so discounted.

- continued thanks.

....ahhh.......son of Gordias......yes and you have given me an idea.

   My experience......or lack therof.....caused me to focus on the "...Service Pack 2 CD-ROM..." portion of the message.  I'm in my mind saying....."what?!  service pack 2?"......and hunting for SP2 CDs in MSDN and such.

   I wonder if it is something so simple as a drive letter improper.  You said 'snide'.....but I could only find Cleo Snide......which I thought must be a complex idiom or clue of sorts so I reviewed your answer and gave greater notice to your comment of portion "....your cached service pack being no longer available" which caused my a (working two jobs 16 hour) flashback.......
                  .......during the OS install I had not yet handled the drive designations and the CD drive was likely D:, but after allocating space on the 500gb pair to Raid1 I must have reset to E:.  What if my sleep deprived fauly lay simply in my trying to add the IIS component and not noticing it said D:......install of E: which is now the CD drive letro.
             May you give me hope this is my challenge until I can darken that door later today and verify??  Would that cause the error??

.....and Gordias, king of Phrygia was the father of "Midas" according to Wiki.  Although the spelling is different (Midus) I assumed your name was in reference to "Midas with the golden touch".  So my statement was meant as endearment, not insult.  I am sorry if language barrier has caused you missinterpretation.

    Again, I appreciate your help and clues that have lead me to a likely resolution.

   - regards

That was it.  CD drive pointing to D: and should have been E:.

Amazing how the easiest things get us.
