I just built a new win2008 R2 machine, that will be hosting the Exch 2010 CAS service. Upon installing CAS I recieve the following error:
Error:
Unable to read data from the Metabase. Ensure that Microsoft Internet Information Services is installed.
Recommended Action: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&v=ExBPA.4&id=a4a4d339-4009-4fb7-b842-ca2ba79f13f0

Error:
Unable to access the 'Default Web Site' on this computer.
Recommended Action: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&v=ExBPA.4&id=aadc8176-1c47-49b7-83a0-9493a1093af1

Error:
The start mode for the Net.Tcp Port Sharing service must be set to Automatic before Setup can continue.

Most of the above recommends re-installing IIS, but before I start hacking things apart, has anyone seen the above error and have recommendations?

Sorry, probably stupid question, but have you set the net tcp port sharing service to automatic - as the error says?
