Hi All. I have a server 2008R2 running IIS 7.5, nothing but a few websites .NET 4.0 pretty standard.  I dont understand why but at least once a day the World Wide Web Publishing Service will stop and set its properties to disable.  I have crawled through the logs and can only find the events but no reason.  I'm pretty stumped.  Anyone have any experience solving this?

Are there any events in the System or Application event log that you can post?  Is there any recurring activity in the http logs at the time(s) of the shutdown?

I would also enable AppPool Recycle event logging on all AppPools for all events.  Maybe you could get a little more info out of the server.

I have found the solution to my problem.  After looking at everything but the least obvious, one of our system administrators "inadvertantly moved my IIS server into an OU designed for terminal servers. One of the policies is no IIS.
SInce I would be the only person authorized to request that, I called up the help desk and t he had it put back very quickly wiihout any questions, tickets or the like. :)

I have resolved this issue. It turns out that one of our SA's  (I work for a company with 300K+ employees so you can imagine the scope here) inadvertently moved one of my IIS servers into an OU that is restricted from running IIS. It's the last thing I thought of, but was the culprit.  I checked the object location and there it was. Since I didn't authorize it, it never occurred to me .... Thanks all for your support.
