Deleting default documentation on Exchange 2003/IIS6

A recent external security audit turned up a few low priority items which I've been asked to correct.  I'm stuck on one of them which states:

(Low)  –  Default documentation was found installed with the HTTP daemon on device xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.  Auditor recommends deleting all default documentation.

I'm not sure how to approach this one without breaking exchange/owa.  I can see the documentation tab under the default website properties for my exchange server running but I don't really know what they want me to do here.  The box for "Enable default content page" is checked and under it are several file names: iisstart.htm, Default.htm, Default.asp, index.htm, and Default.aspx.  I'm far from an IIS expert so would appreciate any guidance you could provide so this won't show up on the next audit.

What you are seeing is "default document" and not documentation. I guess also that the auditor is referring to the same thing


If you go to c:\inetpub\wwwroot you will a few files and folders.

assuming you have only owa running on this IIS move these to another location and keep wwwroot empty that should be enough for the auditor

Could you share some information on the type of audit that was done? I was particularly drawn to the term "daemon" which comes from the UNIX world, so the audit may not have been perfectly suited to Wintel environments.
