"network location cannot be reached" error with multiple ip's
Posted on 2008-09-30
I have a few sites on an IIS6 server. The web sites which are attached to a certain ip address work fine.
The other web sites which are attached to other ip addresses give a
"network location cannot be reached... " error when I try to start them.
I did a httpcfg query iplisten and noticed there's a single ip address listed. It's the one which the working sites are using.
So I used the httpcfg to add the rest of the ip addresses and rebooted.
I noticed none of the sites work anymore and I get a "process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" error
So I figured only a single ip address can be bind. So I removed them with the httpcfg command and rebooted and came back to the initial issue.
So what is the issue exactly? Is it correct that only a single ip address should be in the listen list?
Why am I getting the "network location cannot be reached" message? Is it because the ip address is not in the listen list but if I add it, it causes another issue.
I am missing something.
