Troubleshooting IIS 6.0

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

When administering Web applications, you will have problems to solve — whether fixing a service interruption, analyzing a configuration problem, or working around system resource contention problems. Whether the application is an internal corporate Web-presence or a widely available, scaled-out, data-intensive Web application, any problems that you encounter can seem nearly impossible to resolve, and attempting to do so consumes valuable time and resources.

It explains how to use troubleshooting tools to administer IIS and discusses in detail service and program areas that might require troubleshooting, such as security, service startup, the IIS metabase, HTTP, and ASP.
