Default website not being created when adding net site system RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to stand up an Internet Based Client Management server. According to this page:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/network/websites-for-site-system-servers

    "By default, site system roles use the Default Web Site in IIS. This is set up automatically when the site system role installs."

    But the default web site is not installing when I install the site system role. And so the Management Point fails to install with the error:

    "Site Component Manager failed to install this component, because the designated Web Site of Internet Information Services is not running or started."

    I have all the requisite IIS components installed and the service account used for the install is good. How can I monitor the install of the site/role?

    Skip

  • The Default Web Site is created by the installation of IIS and not any ConfigMgr roles.

    Have you opened the IIS console and validated that it exists? If not, then you have not installed IIS correctly.

    Also, is the IIS service running?

  • Thanks for correcting me.

    Yes, there's no default site. It's totally blank when I select Sites.

    I shall un-/reinstall IIS then.

    Thanks.

  • Make sure that you leave the default options and add those that are necessary per the documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/configs/site-and-site-system-prerequisites.

    You can also use this nice tool from Nickolaj to do this or validate: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ConfigMgr-2012-R2-e52919cd
