Install IIS

FineBuild can install IIS as part of the SQL Server install process.

If you install any of the components below on Windows Vista or above then FineBuild will automatically install IIS. If you install these components on Windows 2003 or XP then you must install IIS manually.

The configuration of IIS for best practices regarding security and performance is outside the scope of FineBuild. It is recommended that staff who specialise in IIS review the FineBuild installation and configure it to conform with your site standards.

No download is needed if FineBuild installs IIS because the install media is built in to Windows.

FineBuild IIS Install

Automated installation of IIS is performed by Process Id 2AN and is controlled by the parameters below:

Install Parameter Build SQL2005 SQL2008 SQL2008R2 SQL2012 SQL2014
SetupIIS FULL No No No No No
SetupIIS CLIENT No No No No No

In order to maintain compatibility with older versions of SQL FineBuild, the parameter InstIIS can also be used.

IIS will be installed automatically if you install one of the components listed above. If you want to install IIS for any other reason the following parameter should be added at run time:

Manual IIS Install

The following steps show what you would have to do to install IIS manually. FineBuild does all of this work for you automatically.

1) Click Start -> Addministrative Tools -> Server Manager

2) Click On Roles and select IIS
