Configuring Internet Information Services for Communicator Web Access
Topic Last Modified: 2009-01-25
Before you can install Communicator Web Access (2007 R2 release) on a computer that computer must have Internet Information Services (IIS) installed and running. If you are installing Communicator Web Access on a computer running Windows Server 2003 then you only need to install Active Server Pages and the World Wide Web Server. No additional configuration is needed.
However, additional configuration is needed if you are installing Communicator Web Access on a computer running Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7.0. In particular, you must do two things before installing Communicator Web Access on a computer running IIS 7.0:
- You must install the Windows Process Activation Service, a service that enables IIS to work with any application that hosts the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).
- You must configure Internet Information Services to run in IIS 6.0 compatibility mode.
For detailed steps on installing and configuring Internet Information Services see the following topics:
If you are running Communicator Web Access under IIS 7.0, you should configure the IIS Managed Pipeline mode after you have created your virtual servers. For details, see Configuring Managed Pipeline Mode for IIS 7.0.
