A connection with the server could not be established.
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method:
The second error occurs if the /Admin virtual directory for the WWW service is missing or pointing to an invalid path.
The third error occurs if the IIS is installed and the directories are valid, but Active Server Pages (ASP) has been removed.
NOTE: Errors 1 and 2 also occur on a server with the Windows NT Option Pack installed. Because installing the Windows NT Option Pack installs ASPs as part of IIS, the last error does not occur.
NOTE: In lieu of Steps 2 and 3 below, you can reinstall Microsoft BackOffice Small Business Server from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to reinstall ASP and the SBS WWW directories. This may take longer to complete because all application components will be reinstalled, however, it will ensure that ASP and the WWW directories are set up correctly. In order for this reinstall to run without errors, IIS must be installed first. If the Windows NT Option Pack is installed, IIS and ASP can only be uninstalled and reinstalled by selecting the Windows NT Option Pack setup from Add/Remove programs or the from the Windows NT Option Pack CD.
Step 1If IIS has been removed, complete the following steps:
- Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network.
- Click the Services tab, and then click Add.
- Select Microsoft Internet Information Server, and then click OK.
NOTE: Use the same directory locations where IIS was previously installed. By default, the locations for IIS and the WWW service are:C:\Winnt\System32\Inetsrv
Step 2To reinstall Active Server Pages, run the following command at an MS-DOS command prompt, with CD1 in the disk drive:
Step 3Verify the WWW directories are present and correct using the steps below:
- Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Internet Server (Common), and then click Internet Service Manager.
- Double-click the computer name for the WWW service.
- Click the Directories tab. If the Windows NT Option Pack is installed, do the following:
- Select the default Web site, right-click it, and then click Properties.
- Go to the home directory tab and click to select Check Access Permissions. Click OK and, when you go back to the IIS console screen, all virtual directories will be listed. Get the properties of each directory and verify the permission are what are shown in the table below. The permissions are under directory properties, access permissions, and permissions.
- Add or modify the entries below, where "R" is Read and "E" is Execute:
NOTE: Some of the above entries have been wrapped for readability.
