Hi,
IIS is a SERVER ROLE. Take a look at this article on how to isntall it.
Install IIS 7.0 on Windows Server 2008  
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/29/installing-iis-7-on-windows-server-2008-or-windows-server-2008-r2/ 
Was IIS ever installed on this host? Do you see it as a Server role? Sounds like it isn't installed.
Let us know,
Cheers,  Hades666

As well,
If you are using the "Connect to a server..." under the Connect Tasks in IIS Manager from your desktop, are you certain that the Remote Management services are enabled on this server you are attempting to connect to.
Remote Administration
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/159/configuring-remote-administration-and-feature-delegation-in-iis-7/ 
I would also try to RDP to the server, Open IIS Manager locally from the server and you should see the Server in the left Connection Pane.  If it is not listed, then IIS is not installed.

I was able to RDP from home into the server. I look at the role in server manager and saw Web Server IIS was install with a red X so I uninstalled because ot required a restart I reboooted but never was able to RDP again. Why?

Because the server is hung on a reboot.?
Is there any onsite support staff to take a look at the console?
Hold tight and see if it come back, sometimes reboots take some time.
