First, I might have to do this maybe once a year, so my memory is failing me as what exactly I did before to get this work because I've been able to do this times prior. We are using an ISS 7 ftp server to recieve internal file transfers from an AIX server we have in house. The only difference between then and now is that the existing virtual directories were migrated from a Windows 2003 (IIS 6) server to a Windows 2008 server.
All permisions from the existing directories are exactly the same as the new directory, yet the new virtual directory will not show in the any of the FTP clients I'm testing. I do have FTP Directory Browsing turned on for the Default Site which is where all Virtual Directories reside. The only thing I haven't done is stop/start IIS (which I don't remeber doing in the past), but I didn't want to needlessly restart IIS on a production server to only end up in the same place I am now. What do I need to do to get this working?
Ok, had some down time to give IIS a restart, but no avail. I am still not able to browse or view my newly created virtual directory on any FTP client.
