    I have recently upgraded my Small Business Server 2000 with the new 2003
    version and am having difficulties with IIS (particularly with the
    "http://companyweb"). After installation, I wanted to move the "Inetpub"
    folder to a different drive for various reasons and followed instructions
    from various sources with no luck. Now I have moved it back to the original
    location and now the Sharepoint Services/Intranet site doesn't work.

    I went to the different different default web sites and changed their home
    directories back to the original location on the "C" drive, but you cannot
    access the "http://Companyweb" site.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Can someone please help. Thank you for your time and cooperation.

    Hi,

    Thanks for using SBS newsgroup.

    From your description, I understand that you can not access the companyweb
    after you moved the inetpub folder. If I'm off base, please let me know.

    Since you have made a lot of operation on the SBS server, I would like to
    recommend that you reinstall the companyweb. To do so:

    I. Uninstall Intranet

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
    2. Select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and then click Change/Remove.
    The Setup Wizard appears.
    3. Click Next to start the wizard.
    4. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
    5. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server
    Tools to Maintenance, change Intranet component to Remove, and then click
    Next.
    6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
    7. Click Finish.

    II Delete IIS Virtual Directory

    1. Delete SharePoint Central Administration (Do Not Delete Microsoft
    SharePoint Administration. It belongs to FronPage Server Extension)
    2. Delete Companyweb

    III. Rename Folders

    1. Rename C:\Inetpub\companyweb

    IV. Install the intranet component
    1. In Add or Remove Programs, select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and
    then click Change/Remove. The Setup Wizard appears.
    2. Click Next.
    3. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
    4. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server
    Tools to Maintenance, change Intranet component to Install, and then click
    Next.
    5. On the Logon Information page, click Next.
    6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
    7. Click Finish.

    V. The Installation should still fail, and then apply the patch located at:

    assistance. We look forward to hearing from you.
