We were updating to the new FTP 7.5 and removed IIS 6.0 and the IIS 6.0 FTP. When removing the above programs it removed some components that we still need. The programs were removed by removing server roles in the server manager. I'm guess I need to add the server roles back and just unstall the FTP 6.0 program instead of removing IIS 6.0. I'm going to remove the IIS 7.5 (What is the best way to remove the 7.5 FTP program?) and add the server roles that were removed and then remove the IIS FTP 6.0 and install the IIS 7.5 FTP. I haven't been throught these steps before and wanted to check with some of the experts here to make sure that I'm doing this correctly and to see if there were any suggestions. Attached is the txt file of the server roles removed. Also it removed sharepoint SP1 but left the data base intacted. This sever isn't online yet as we were just setting it up to bring on line next week.

Thanks,
Removal succeeded. A restart is required.

If the roles were removed by uninstalling IIS 6 what is your dependency on them?
If they are needed for IIS 7/FTP 7.5? then they should get reinstalled or be installable as components of these installations.

What exactly are the roles/components that you need?

Applications installed that integrate themselves with IIS are probably going to have to be reinstalled as they are going to modify/tweak the IIS configuration when they install.  Such as creating virtual directories, adding web.config files and setting up properties on virtual directories.

If still possible, then you could try backing up/exporting  the IIS 6 configuration and then import the configuration once you have the new version installed.

If you do a google search on migrating sites from IIS 6 to 7 there is a lot of information out there ... http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=migrate+iis+6+to+iis7&btnG=Google+Search&aq=0&oq=migrate+IIS+&fp=-dx2DTn7Pl4

Here is a link to migrating to a  new server ... http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/427/migrate-from-iis-60-to-iis-70/
