IIS 6 configuration comptability - where to set this? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to set IIS configuration compatibility:

    Found these instruction below. Bullet 3 says under Roles Services pane. I don't have the Roles Services pane. How do I get that?

    IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008: IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility

    To set up IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility and Windows Authentication for IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008:

    1. In the Control Panel, open Administrative Tools, and then Server Manager.
    2. Expand Roles, and select Web Server IIS.
    3. In the Web Server (IIS) pane, under Roles Services pane, check that Windows Authentication and IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility are installed:
      • Windows Authentication is located under Web Server, Security

    IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility is located under Management Tools, IIS 6 Management Compatibility

  • Hi,

    Hope your query has been answered by now. However, would like to add few points here.

    Firstly, would like to know if you configuring the IIS for the VM by remote into it?

    I've tried something similar to the above scenario and I was able to find Role services Pane in the left hand side.

    Unfortunately, could not post the screenshot here due to forum restrictions. apologies for the inconvenience.

    - IN server Manager -> click on the link " Add roles and Features " -> click Next in the " Before you begin " after reading the documentation -> Select role based or feature based installation for single server by adding roles , role services and features -> click Next -> Select the server from the server portal -> Select the roles you wanted to install and click next ( example " Application Server and Webserver IIS -- Add these features ) -> click next for the page Application server -> Now you can see the " Role services "  

    - From here, you should be able to navigate to your requirement.

    Hope this helps.
