Although most of the changes to IIS that are made during the upgrade process have little affect, some of the changes can affect the Web sites and applications, as well as the administration of the Web server. Before upgrading your existing IIS server, review the changes that will be made to IIS during upgrade and determine whether these changes can affect your Web sites and applications. Otherwise, after the upgrade, applications might not function as they were originally designed to. In addition, you need to identify the changes made to IIS during upgrade so that you can properly administer and configure the Web server upon completion of the upgrade.
Identify the changes incurred during the upgrade by completing the following steps:
Select a method to ensure that the WWW service is enabled after upgrading a Web server running Windows 2000 Server.
Identify changes made to IIS components during upgrade.
