I'm running multiple web sites on a single Server using IIS 6.0.
The server is running both .NET framework 1.1 & 2.0 and have seperate app
Currently there are approx. 40 web sites associated with framework 1.1 while
10 are associated with framework 2.0.

My problem is that whenever I create a new site and assign it to one of the
frameworks the IIS forces a restart thus causing all the sites to be
unavaiulable for a short period of time. This behavior seems unlogical, wy
would the IIS restart every time I add a new site? this has been occurring
only since framework 2.0 has been added along side to .NET framework 1.1

Is this normal behavior or something in the settings/configuration?


I've been hesitant to run both frameworks on the same environment as it is a
production environment and I wasn't sure if this is optimal although I know
that the server isn't close to it's thresholds therefore it would be a shame
to order a dedicated server for running seperate frameworks.
