FTP instalation on W2K3 server

I have a client who has requested that we install FTP on one of their W2K3 boxes.  The server already has the application server role installed as the file and print role installed so I go to add remove programs windows components iis and try to install FTP services and it looks like it finishes correctly but then when you check FTP did not install.  I am logged into the server as Administrator and when I go back to check in add remove programs windows components it shows FTP as not installed.  I need to get this service installed for the client.

Do the event logs shed any light during the installation? I take it you're definately not seeing it in the iis console.

.No it is not showing up in the IIS console and no there is nothing showing up in the Logs it is as if I had never made the installation attempt

Does this server contain any websites or requirements for iis? You could try removing IIS altogether than putting it back on with ftp selected.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Was IIS already installed prior to trying to install the FTP portion?
If not then could you uninstall IIS then reinstall with FTP option?

I remember seeing a thread about activating logging for adding / removing programs but I think someone else would have a better idea than that.

Ok I solved this.  I had to uninstal WSUS and IIS then reinstall IIS with FTP and after I had that up and running correctly I then reinstalled WSUS and now everythign is fine.
