Please refer to my earlier comment:


If your server has not changed places, here is way to know:

1. Start Windows Explorer
2. Browse to C:\ (assuming this is your systemroot)
3. Locate Inetpub folder and right click on it
4. Look for Created and Date Mentioned on General Tab.

This date is the date of IIS Installation.

Hope this helps!

InetPub folder is only created during the installation process of IIS, so it is same to assume that the date of creation of Inetpub Folder is same as date of Installation of IIS on the server.

Hope this helps!

The easiest way would be to go to control panel, then Windows features, and see if it is selected in the options.  From memory I think it is shown under Application Server.

Alternately, go to control panel, Administrative Tools and see if Internet Information Services is listed.  If present and you open this it will take you to the IIS Admin application.

In window press
start>>Run
Run window will appear
enter "inetmgr" and press enter
if Ineternet Information services (IIS) manager window appears IIS is installed or it show error
which means IIS is not installed.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You can check it by go to Start>program files>administrative tools>>Service>World Wide Web Publishing Service

If the "World Wide Web Publishing Service is listed there means IIS is installed."

2. On the run/ cmd prompt type 'inetmgr '  if the IIS is installed a MMC of iis will be display else the IIs is not installed.

Simple method to check..
open internet explorer and enter http:\\localhost
If you are getting IIS help message, your server has IIS and it is active.
