I think I've looked through all the menus and control panel and I can't find anything to configure IIS.

I feel like IIS is already installed because SQL Server Reporting services has a webpage running and a virtual directory.

Check Server Manager -> Roles and verify if you have Web Server (IIS) installed. If yes, make sure you have IIS Management Console installed.

  • I do see the role. Where would I check for the IIS management console? May 18, 2010 at 15:34
  • In the "Role Features"

    Open Server Manager -> Roles Scroll down to Web Server (IIS) click on Add Role Services under Management Tools -> IIS Management Console May 18, 2010 at 15:43

type IIS in the search bar it should bring you to the internet services manager, or you can click start, programs, admnistrative tools and the IIS maanger should be listed


SSRS 2008 does not require IIS to be installed, therefore the SSRS Virtual Directories will not show up in IIS configuration tools anyway!



Use ServerManagerCmd to change Windows 2008 Roles. Examples:

ServerManagerCmd.exe -query

ServerManagerCmd.exe -install Web-Server -resultPath installResult.xml

ServerManagerCmd.exe -inputPath install.xml -whatIf
