After you uninstall this update package, Internet Information Services (IIS) may stop running. This issue occurs because the following changes are applied to the ApplicationHost.config file when you uninstall this update package.

Note The ApplicationHost.config file is located in the following directory:
%Windir%\System32\inetsrv\config\
  1. Duplicate entries are created in the two sections after the <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> and <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> tags.

    After the duplicate entries are created, the two sections resemble the following:
    <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    <authentication/>
    </security>
    <security/>
    </system.webServer>
    <system.webServer/>
    </location>
    <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    <authentication/>
    </security>
    <security/>
    </system.webServer>
    <system.webServer/>
    </location>
  2. The following entries are created before the </configuration> tag at the end of the file:
    • <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"/>
    • <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"/>
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Remove the duplicate entries in the two sections after the <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> and <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> tags. After you remove the entries, the two sections resemble the following:
    <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    </security>
    </system.webServer>
    </location>
    <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    </security>
    </system.webServer>
    </location>
  2. Delete the following entries at the end of the ApplicationHost.config file:
    • <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"/>
