I'm trying to configure Request Filtering on one of my servers.  The role service is installed but it's not in IIS.  I've uninstalled IIS and reinstalled and still no luck.  I can get it back if I install the IIS admin pack, but I don't want to have to install that to get Request Filtering since I've never had to do that before.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Admin pack is required. Otherwise it doesn't appear in the IIS Management UI. You can "Request Filtering" it in the server IIS Roles/Security but it will only be configurable via appcmd or manually manipulating the config files. To see it in the GUI you need the admin pack.

"The IIS 7.0 Administration Pack adds to the set of management features that ship with IIS 7.0 to include Administration UI support for ASP.NET authorization, custom errors, FastCGI configuration, Request Filtering and much more. "

Is IIS 7.0 different than IIS 7.5 in that respect?  I know that in 2008R2 it's there by default.

Yes, In IIS 7.5 that feature was added to IIS Manager and it there by default.

In IIS 7.0 you need the admin pack to have it appear in the Feature pane. If you don't have it installed, Request filtering is not listed. As soon as you isntall it, it appears.

As an FYI... you will see more of this as Microsoft continues to build out IIS. since 7.* is modular, you will see many more addins/extentions coming from iis.net.

URL Rewrite is my favourite :)!
