Appendix A: IIS Configuration Issues

In installations where the MessageStats Reports IIS server and the MessageStats database SQL server are installed on separate computers, you might see one of the following errors when starting the MessageStats Reports web site:

If you are unable to resolve these issues when connecting to the SQL database server, you may need to use SQL Authentication to connect to the database server. By enabling IIS to use SQL Authentication, you can resolve this issue.

For information about how to configure SQL Authentication, see Knowledge Base article 3553 on the Support Portal.

Microsoft .NET Configuration Issues

MessageStats Reports require that Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5 is installed on the server on which the web-based reports are hosted. If you have problems accessing MessageStats Reports, you can check the following settings that affect ASP Active Server Page (ASP) configuration.

For Windows Server, IIS must be installed and enabled. Also the Web Server (IIS) role must be installed and certain role services must be enabled. See Setting IIS Role Services for IIS for more information.

Repairing IIS Mappings for ASP.NET

In some Microsoft environments, you may encounter a configuration issue with Microsoft .NET which can prevent MessageStats from reporting information correctly. The error indicates that Microsoft .NET Framework must be installed on the IIS server that hosts MessageStats Reports, and that Microsoft ASP.NET must be enabled on the virtual directory that contains MessageStats Reports.

If you are sure that the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 is installed, and ASP.NET is enabled you may need to repair the IIS mappings for ASP.NET. The following procedure is based on the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 306005. Use the procedure to configure Microsoft ASP.NET.
