I have a Windows 2003 SBS Server (SP2) that suddenly has a problem starting the IIS Admin Service.
This not only means that intranet sites are no longer available to the users but more importantly, Exchange has a service-dependency on the IIS Admin Service, meaning that Exchange won't run either.
I've found blogs online (such as this one) that say about uninstalling IIS, but it also says nearer the bottom that on restart, the problem happens again.
(Edit:) There actually appears to be an HTML email (with encoded attachment text) inside the metabase.xml... should that even be there???
