Installing IIS 6.0 with the Operating System

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

Use the Winnt32.exe command-line utility to install IIS 6.0 by using an unattended answer file that includes a [Components] section with the unattended setup parameters listed in Table B.1 and — optionally — an [InternetServer] section with the parameters listed in Table B.2.

ImportantImportant
You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to run scripts and executables. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run your script or executable as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /profile /User:MyMachine\Administrator cmd to open a command window with administrator rights and then type cscript.exe ScriptName (include the script's full path and any parameters).

To use the Winnt32.exe command-line utility

  1. At a command prompt, type:

    winnt32 /unattend:AnsweFile /s:InstallSource
    

    where AnswerFile is a file that contains answers to questions that should be automated during installation, and InstallSource is the location of the Windows 2003 installation files.
