I installed IIS.  But there is a lot different.  Is ASP.Net installed by default?  What about Failed Request Tracing?  I just have a lot fewer options available than I had on my old server.  Do I have to add some features?  FTP?  With or without SSL?

Any information anyone can give me would be awesome!

Installing IIS on Windows Server is different as a lot of IIS features are not enabled by default. You have to load Server Manager, click on Roles, IIS, and enable the required role services in the wizard.

See http://www.iis.net/learn/get-started/whats-new-in-iis-8/installing-iis-8-on-windows-server-2012

I did what it says in the link but there are a lot of features that I can't see, for instance failed request tracing.  How do I add that?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

For the IIS role, see 'Health and Diagnostics', make sure 'Tracing' is enabled.

Open IIS Management Console, expand server, Default Web Site and look in the features section of the Window, where the IIS settings are configured, and it will show 'Failed request tracing' option.
