IIS roles needed for Exchange 2007

Ive just installed Exchange 2007 on a windows server 2003 machine.  Before installing Exchange I installed IIS using add/remove programs.  Ive now read I should have installed IIS using server manager and selected these roles:

ISAPI extensions
Basic Authentication
Windows Authentication
Digest Authentication
Dynamic Content Compression
IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
IIS 6 Management Console

How can I check if these roles have been installed?  Do I need them?  Can I add them after installing exchange or should I reinstall IIS then Exchange.  The server hasn't gone live and no-one is using it.

Thanks, Peter.

If you go to add/remove programs, then go to "add windows components" it should tell you which IIS-related items have already been installed.

The items you listed above look more like things that might be mentioned when you're installing Exchange 2007 onto a server running Windows 2008 though.

For server 2003, in add/remove programs/components choose iis but NOT smtp or NNTP

Hi Acox65807,
Yes that's exactly what I did, do you think these roles were installed OK and I don't need to do anything.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

So it is 2008 server and NOT 2003?

I have installed exchange 2007 on about 5 2008 servers and I use that link and simply copy and paste the lines in the command line. works fine.

No sorry it's server 2003.  Add/remove programs gives you different options, not the roles listed in my workbook.
