Virtual Server management Website https port busy
Posted on 2007-10-04
I'm having a bit of a problem with Microsoft Virtual Server. I have a MS Server 2003 standard which is running IIS6 and Virtual Server 2005 R2.
I have configured the managment website for the virtual server to be connected to via https, originally on port 1025. This in its self was simple to setup and work perfectly well until I shut down the box for the weekend. On returning the following monday, started the server and tried to log on to the management webpage I was presented with a "page cannot be displayed" error. After checking that I was infact typing the url correctly I checked IIS website for virtual server managment and found that it was not running. On restarting the webserver I was presented with the error "The process cannot access the file because it was being used by another process"
After much head scratching I ended up changing the https port number configured in IIS to 1026. On trying a restart of the webserver everything started to work as normal again.
The following weekend of course I shut the computer down. Monday arrived and yet again the same thing, when trying to access the virtual server management website i'm faced with an error.
On checking the IIS I see that the website is not working and again will not restart giving the same error "The process cannot find file..........". I then try changing the https port back to 1025, same message. Again I change the port back to 1026 and I still get the same error. I finally changed the port to 1027 and heypresto the webserver started.
Has anybody else out there seen this error and could you please help me with a fix, as i can't keep changing port numbers each time I restart the server.
Thanks guys, look forward to hearing your replies,
