Hi,

I wonder if anyone can shed some light onto this issue.  

I have had auditors ask me to install the microsoft IIS lockdown tool, on my Windows Server 2008R2 server, running IIS6.1.  From what I have read, the tool is only supported for Windows server 2000 and is not needed on my version of Windows Server.  

Thanks.

You're correct in thinking that IIS lockdown is no longer available for Server 2008R2, you could run the Baseline Security Analyzer tool on your server, this will do basically a check of everything ...

This is actually quoted from the MBSA document:

The IIS Lockdown tool was
developed for IIS 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1,
and is not needed for new
Windows Server 2008 R2
installations running IIS 6.0.
