A question about installing ASP.NET

Post by Don Thimsen » Thu Feb 10, 2005 10:46 pm

I'm working on a Win 2003 server that is also a domain controller. When ASP.NET is installed, or run the Aspnet_regiis.exe -i command, the install takes about 15 minutes. Is this normal???

When looking at the ASPNETSeup.log, there is one section that stands out:

2005-02-10 16:33:03 Success Install the ASP.NET State Service
2005-02-10 16:33:03 Starting Install the ASP.NET Perfomanace counters
2005-02-10 16:40:35 Success Install the ASP.NET Perfomanace counters
2005-02-10 16:40:35 Starting Install common performance counters
2005-02-10 16:48:07 Success Install common performance counters
2005-02-10 16:48:07 Starting Installing client script files

Note: This is not a Vault related problem, but is related to an Exchange 2003 install which isn't working. I'm just trying to figure out if ASP.NET has a problem, or Exchange. I have no idea what is normal for ASP.NET, and I haven't dug anything interesting out of MS KBs, newgroups or Google.

Thanks for any hints,
Don

I'm not sure if that is normal behavior or not. Its been a while since I've had to configure a machine.

However, I can throw some information your way, that may or may not help :>)
  • Have you read the KB article Installing Vault Server on Windows 2003 Server It has some general ASP.Net / Win 2003 server information.
  • If Vault is installed, on the server, you can browse to the VaultService Web service description page - http://localhost/vaultservice/vaultservice.asmx On this, there should be a call for Ping(). Click on the Ping link, and invoke the web service. If ASP.Net is working correctly, this should return a 1 ( within a SOAP message ).
These suggestions might help you determine if ASP.Net is configured correctly.

Thanks Jeff,

Everything looks right, it's just incredibly slow. So slow, that when Exchange 2003 is getting installed, the MSInstaller issues an event record that says it's stopped. This happens while it's running aspnet_regiis.exe.

Right now, I'm just trying to decide if it's an ASP.NET problem or an Exchange install problem. I'm thinking ASP.NET, but it's really not much more than intuition. It's time to have a conversion with MS.

Thanks again,
Don
