Removing IIS roles on Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, we have a server dedicated to building automation and security. The surveillance software program that we use requires IIS to administer access to clients. When I activated the IIS roles to make the surveillance program work, i was no longer able to see our primary login page for the building automation, which I guess was set up as the local host. Only the IIS splash page comes up. We wish to remove the surveillance program and restore the original function of the server, but I don't know how to undo the roles without losing Framework and other critical functions. I'm not an IT professional, but have used the programs independently of one another extensively. It only took 3 mouse clicks to get where it is now, Please tell me it can be undone simply. Thank you.

  • Better to ask the application developer. You can also ask in microsoft official IIS forums here.

  • Hi BuckBell1967,

    I'm agree with Dave's suggestion.

    In addition, personal suggestion: you could use the powershell command to uninstall the IIS role on your server and then re-install it and reconfigure it.

    Here is the command: open powershell, run as admin; Get-windowsfeature -name IIS | uninstall-windowsfeature -whatif(this parameter could show you the result, you don't need to use it when you ensure) & install-windowsfeature -name IIS or installing by using GUI.

    How to install the IIS role, refer to:

    How to configure IIS role via PS:

    If you lost the Framework, you could download it via the internet or by using CD-ROM to repair.

    Best regards,
