    IIS Broken?

    Hello

    We are having problems with IIS since we changed the IP address range.
    The ip address change on a whole went quite well and it seems that DNS (where we expected problems) is actually fine.
    Nevertheless, looking in IIS it looks like we have lost all the virtual directories. IIS does not seem to work at all and surprisingly there are no useful events being logged.
    There are of course the IIS log which have entries like
    2006-04-04 06:40:29 10.100.0.119 - 10.100.0.6 80 PROPFIND /libraryresources - 404 Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600.
    Does this indicate that requests are arriving correctly?
    Is there anywhere in IIS where the ip binding would need to be set that I might have missed?

    You can specify an IP in the site properties, under the web site tab. If this was set to a specific IP it may reqiure changing.

    Hmm
    test localhost first and see if IIS is running locally and logging it in its default location of c:\windows\system32\logfiles\w3c***\
    If you get the localhost hit it means IIS is running.
    I assume you have rebooted. Try a ipconfig /flushdns to be sure before.
    Are the virtual directorys local or remote?

    No - localhost does not work although logging is OK at its default location. We rebooted a couple of times but tna.
    We have tried with both unassigned and ip address in site properties but unless we can see the virtual directories including all the exchange stuff then I can't see it coming up.
    I tested the procedure on a test rig at home and all was well so its difficult to see where we have gone wrong.
    We tried to create a new web site and put a test html doc in there and we seem to be able to get that by typing http://10.100.0.4 but not when we type http://jrs.local - resolution?
    I wonder if their are two problems here?

    If I try and ping JRS.Local (our domain) I get a workstations ip back.
    If I go nslookup jrs.local I get a list of IP's, four of which are our new 10.0.0.0 range (including servers) and about 30 in the old 128.0.0.0 range. Surely this is wrong.

    Whats the deal with reinstalling IIS - would you normally expect to lost all of the settings. If you hadn't already guessed - I'm a complete numpty when it comes to IIS.

    Re: IIS Broken?

    Got it
    Two problems
    The default page was an asp file which queried another server running SQL (Sims actually) in another forest all together. In the ODBC control panel there were a host of homegrown connections - the main one still pointed to the old ip address.
    Funny - how this could bring down the whole lot.
    The virtual folders were down due to a small setting in virtual directory properties/application settings.

    The second issue was down to our good friend DNS.
    I needed to put in a A record to WWW.jrs.local

    phew
