* Windows 2008 : Enable IIS & .NET

Enabling IIS and .NET on Windows 2008 can get little tricky depending on which route you take. But the help provided by the server is excellent and you should be able to get through it.

Here are the steps which you can follow :

  • Activate Windows Process Activation Service from Features. More on WAS later ..  its a great stuff.


  • Enable Web Server Role as .NET requires Web Server Role to be enabled. Web Server role enables following IIS 7.0, ASP.NET and WCF.



  • Enable .NET 3.0 feature.


Once you are through with Web Server installation, here is something new and really useful. Infact a great example of UX.

From Server Manager if you click on Web Server, you go to a page which gives a consolidated status view of Events, System Services and Role services on a single page and all related to Web Server only.
