Hello, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I don't have any 'Web Sites' folder under my server instance in the IIS managment console. The only thing that is showing up is 'FTP Sites'. At first I thought that maybe I didn't have the services enabled,
but I've disabled everything and re-enabled it and nothing happened. What am I doing wrong? Anyone experience this before?

Well that's strange, it worked this time. Now I've got what appears to be a new management console. However when I try and access the IIS 6.0 console it still shows no 'Web Sites' folder (or even my computer for that matter), Is that typical?

Oh it just told me I'm stupid.
"Cannot connect to an IIS 7.0 server using the IIS 6.0 management console"
Now I can't get SQL Server 2005 install to recognize IIS and let me install reporting services. Is there a separate install package for this?

Zzzz.... what OS you running ? what you trying to do ? install IIS ? remote manage IIS ? or ???????
For RS, visit microsoft.com/sql and look for RS download.

Vista. I'm having trouble now getting 2005 to install at all. I've downloaded the developers DVD ISO from MSDN and it keeps giving me a 'Sql.cab file is corrupt' error (I've downloaded it twice). Even the express version fails to install, showing an
error with the downloaded file. I thought that these were corrupt file issues, but I've downloaded each one several times and gotten the same error. I'll try and find a solution elsewhere for this, but thanks for the help!

Ok, this is IIS forum, for SQL related error, pls try SQL or MSDN relevant forums.
Is Vista working fine? can you see the default welcome image on

Yeah I think it's a problem with my install files. Anyways I've got a thread going over on the SQL forums and everything is set with my IIS. Thanks, I can't believe uninstalling and re-installing twice was the answer.
