ISS Feature Requirement Missing - How do I fix this?
SQL 2005 Server. I work out of my home then install on the office server.I'm new to all this, so please bear with me.I've spent many hours trying to installSQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services SP3 (SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE).I installed ISS 6.0 and then 7.0.Each time I run the installation I'm missing the ISS Feature Requirement. "Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is either not installed or is disabled. IIS is required by some SQL Server features. Without IIS, some SQL Server features will not be available for installation. To install all SQL Server features, install IIS from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or enable the IIS service through the Control Panel if it is already installed, and then run SQL Server Setup again." I want to use Reporting Services but I cannot even get started because I cannot get past this problem.I think I need to also install Business Intelligence Development Studio. But I cannot find out where to download it. Do I need this?If someone could simply tell me what I need to download and install to get Reporting Services up and running, I would be very grateful.Thank you,Dennis

What OS are you using? Are you sure that IIS (that you find in Add/Remove Windows Components) is installed on your computer? If you go to Start - > Run and type-in inetmgr, what response do you get?..hegde

Hi NDennisV, Thanks for your posts. From your post, we can see that you want to install SQL Server 2005 Express with Advance Service SP3 with Reporting Service, but receive an error message stating that the Internet Information Server hasnt been installed. If there is anything I have misunderstood, please do not hesitate to let me know. In Windows XP, we can only install Internet Information Server 5.1(IIS5.1). Internet Information Services Manager (IIS) 6.0 or 7.0 is only an administration UI that provides end users and administrators with a way to remotely manage IIS servers. I assume that the Internet Information Server 5.1 hasnt been installed. Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) is included in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Toolkit Service Pack3, and installed automatically when you install the service pack. Overall, to solve the issue, we can use the following steps: 1. Install Internet Information Server. For more information on how to install IIS, see How to: Install Microsoft Internet Information Services in SQL Server 2005 Books Online. 2. Re-install SQL Server 2005 Express with Advance Service SP3. For more information on how to install SQL Server Express, please see Installing SQL Server Express in SQL Server 2005 Books Online. 3. Download SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Toolkit Service Pack3, and then install. After installing the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Toolkit Service Pack 3, the Business Intelligence Development Studio is installed. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, JinJin Chen - MSFT

Thank you for this information "In Windows XP, we can only install Internet Information Server 5.1(IIS5.1)."I'm still new to this and should not have installed the Express because I was using the Pro SQL Server to start with.I had a mess for awhile, but it's all working again.With this new information, is there anything I should know before I install IIS5.1?Thanks again,Dennis

I know I'm resurrecting an old thread, but I'm having a similar difficulty. I need the Business Intelligence Development Studio, and do have admin rights on my machine (a corporate laptop), but apparently even there there's policies in place that do not allow me to start IIS locally. It is installed and I can see it in the services - I changed it from disabled to "automatic", but I'm forbidden from starting it. I do believe that on my former machine (I've just been issued a new one), I did not have a full-blown IIS installation, but I did manage to get BIDS installed at somepoint in the last 3 years (our refresh cycle). Is there any way around this other than having to argue for a policy exception (that's nearly impossible to get) through our data security folks? Thanks, Annyka
