ImportantImportant
If you plan to use the Administration Website, and you are installing Virtual Server on a single computer, then you must install the World Wide Web Service component of Internet Information Services (IIS) before starting any installation procedures. Or, if you are installing Virtual Server on multiple computers, then you must install the World Wide Web Service on the same computer on which you intend to install the Administration Website before you begin the installation procedure for the Administration Website. Before installing Virtual Server, you must review conceptual information about configuring the Administration Website to run as either the authenticated user or the Local System account. Once you select either of these options, you can only change the option by reinstalling Virtual Server. For more information, see "Installing the Administration Website" in Related Topics.
noteNote
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Securing Virtual Server to perform this procedure. For more information about the options to configure the Administration Website, see "Configuring constrained delegation" in Related Topics. When installation is complete, Microsoft Internet Explorer opens and an installation summary appears. In addition, a message may appear depending on whether you have enabled Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration. You can click OK to dismiss this message.
