IIS admin service is restarting itself, well Service Control Manager is restarting it.  Not positive why.  

This is not a desired behavior, any ideas how i can turn this functionality off?

Below are the details.

Event ID 7035
Source Service Control Manager
User NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

The IIS Admin Service was successfully sent a start control.

The start control is being sent by the SYSTEM.  Besides restarting on failure, what other system functions would send a start control because of a service failure?

Author

Commented:
different times before the start control is sent also, today, 36s, then 82s.  First stop command was sent by our automation tool, second was a manual stop from an RDP session.  Both were followed by a start control from the system at the respective times.

I don't understand, you have an automation tool that is stopping the services?

Author

Commented:
We use an automation tool to stop IIS Admin and related services before we deploy code to the server. It is after this command is sent from the automation tool that the service restarts.  If IIS is started we can't modify the code, in-use access denied type of errors.  We try a manual stop on IIS, and then try to re-deploy, we usually repeat these steps a couple times before the service actually stays down.

Sounds to me like its more likely to be a problem with the way the code is being handled rather than an issue with IIS

its not, this one of 7 environments we have for the promotion of code.  This is the same process we take with all the other environments, only this server experiences this issue, the other environments use the same automation method, with the same automation jobs, minus server name, and the same code is promoted through all environments.

I do believe it is something unsual, that is why i am trying to get an idea of what could use the service control manager, with user SYSTEM, to send start codes.

I am afraid I don't know, if there are no other events in the event viewer prior to the stop then the only thing I would suggest is making sure the server is fully upto date with patches/service packs.

.asp versions, .net versions etc etc
