    Hello,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    I have a dynamic data web site using the dynamic data futures.  I will be going into a meeting to let my company know what IIS Server we need to purchase and how to set it up internally.  I’m not a Server admin/configuration person so any tips would really help. Also if I'm using SQL Server Express, do I need to prep my IIS for that too?

    Thanks, <o:p></o:p>Mpage1000<o:p></o:p>

    Verify the app pool has R/W permission to the MDB file. The default app pool runs under the NETWORK SERVICE account.

    To host Dynamic Data pages, you just need to add the web server role to Windows 2008, add the ASP.Net role service and install .net 3.5 SP1.

    A server that will run Windows Server 2008 Standard and has 4 GB of RAM.  See www.iis.net for help specific to iis.

    Thank you Jeff.  Once we get a server like that, what ASP.Net 3.5 sp1 things should be loaded?  (with out visual studio 2008 being loaded)
