Installing Web-based Administration

Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web is a complete Web site that is hosted on your Windows Media server by Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). You can add Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web during installation or at any time by using Server Manager. After you install Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web, you should configure an appropriate level of security for the administration Web site to protect data transferred between a remote computer and your Windows Media server. This will also help protect your network from unauthorized access. For more information, see Securing the Windows Media Administration site.

After you have installed Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web, configured the appropriate security settings, and started the Web site, you can access the Web site from any browser that supports Active Server Pages (ASP). Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web is useful if you want to administer one or more Windows Media servers from a single location or if physical or network access to the server is difficult, such as when you administer a server across a network firewall. Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web is also useful for use in temporary remote locations. For example, you can use Windows Media Services Administrator for the Web to control a broadcast publishing point from a remote location where you are producing and encoding a live event.

noteNote
The Web-based Administration role service can be installed only on a drive formatted with the NTFS file system.
