Cause
This problem occurs when the version of the Asp.dll file does not match the version of other Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) files. The Asp.dll file has a version number of 6.0.3790.1830, the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) version number, instead of version number of 6.0.3790.0, the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 version number. This problem may occur if one of the following conditions is true:
  • You install IIS on the server after you install Windows Server 2003 SP1.
  • You install Windows Server 2003 SP1 on the server, and then you remove it.
Note Other file versions may also not match.
Resolution
To resolve this issue, you must reapply Windows Server 2003 SP1 on the Exchange Server 2003 server.
