Why does my IIS metabase (metabase.xml) become corrupt everytime I reboot?
Hi, I am running Windows 2003 Small Business Server SP2. For the past 2 weeks, everytime my server is restarted, the IIS metabase becomes corrupt. It is the metabase.xml in particular that is corrupt. If I open the XML file, I can clearly see that there are garbage characters in the file, rather than just the text as in the regular file.
I can restore the file from backup, restart IIS and everything is fine, until I reboot again.. Any idea why this happening?
Note: if I do an IISRESET, this does not occur. Seems to only happen on reboot -- I can see that the modified timestamp on the file matches the time that the system is coming back up and services are starting..
