Seems like when I do IISRESET from command prompt, I'm getting the restart error about 90% of the time. Running IIS7 on Win 2008. But I've seen the same thing with IIS6 and Win2003. Running IISRESET a second time seems to start everything, or I could restart manually - but I'm curious if I can get it to work consistently with just ONE IISRESET.

The IIS Admin Service or the World Wide Web Publishing Service, or a service dep endent on them failed to start. The service, or dependent services, may had an error during its startup or may be disabled. C:\Users\btinstall>iisreset Attempting stop... Internet services successfully stopped Attempting start...
