Our Default website was deleted from IIS in sbs 2011 and we need to get it back in place for all of the Exchange Virtual Directories. Can we restore from a backup or recreate it quickly?
Thanks!

You can simply recreate the default website and then proceed to use the fix my network wizard.


Be sure to double check all your configs / entries before you proceed.

Surely there must be a way to restore this from a backup?

If you just want the site back you can stop w3svc and browse to your IIS backups
 C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\History

There should be an xml there eg:
000000000000_0000000000.xml

Rename that to metabase.xml and restart the web service.

No sir. That did not do it either. Site is still awol. Along with all the virtual goodies that make Exchange work.

Yup as indicated you would need to recreate them  :(

Fix my network wizard should be the easiest way to fix that, if not I can give you the commands to remove then recreate them.
