Server in continuous reboot because of IIS
Posted on 2009-05-12
I have a Server that is roughly 5 years old with Windows 2003 Server Standard.
It's primary role is for Antivirus Server, Backup Server, and a now defunct Support Ticket System Server.
The support ticket system was junk and never worked correctly. At it's worst it started this problem wherein the server, on boot, would initialize windows, appear to be starting normally and then reboot suddenly during the boot proccess. The server gets as far as "Applying settings" just about finished loading Windows and then reboots.
We stopped using the ticket system because it was junk and because of this issue. We temporarily fixed the server by just disabling the IIS service. Problem resolved....
.....Until now. I'm trying to install the latest Endpoint protection 11.0 from Symantec and it requires IIS to be operational.
When I enable the IIS it starts the same problem again.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
