I hope someone can help. I have restore a server and the W3SVC won't start
(Error : 87 parameter incorrect) but IISADMIN, SMTP..etc all still work. All
the backups I have have this problem as I did not know and was backing up
My Server is Windows 2003 SP2
This is what happened.
1. I installed a lot of security updates and the server crashed
2. when the server booted up the metabase was corrupt
3. I have tried to restore the metabase and the whole system no joy as the
backups already have the problem.
I now attempt to uninstall IIS 6 and then re-install. But W3SVC still won't
Error 87: Parameter Incorrect.
I need to get IIS working again.
Is there away to completely clean IIS and do a clean install - I have tried
remove from add/remove programs but W3SVC still won't start.
Hope someone can help
Many thanks in advance
