How do I know what version of IIS I am running?

I've encountered a LOT of posts on this--some of them represent a LOT of unnecessary work. Here's the simple way: 1. Navigate to Administrative Tools. 2. Go to Internet Information Services (IIS) 3. If you last looked at something, Navigate to ABOVE your server name -- where it says "Internet Information Services" 4. Look to the right. You should see something that looks like this: computer local version -------------------------- ------- ------------- YourComputerName yes IIS V6.0 You're DONE ......

Why did I get the error: Cannot implicitly convert type 'string' to 'yourEnumDef.type' in my C# program?

If you are working with enum types, you were probably trying to assign something like an input string to the constants you defined as an enum type earlier. let's say you created an enum type called PoliticianType enum PoliticianType { knownothing = 1000, whig = 1010, federalist = 1020, republican = 1030, democrat = 1040 } ...and you had a console app that was accepting user input from a readline statement: Console.Write("Which political party? (press CTRL+Z to exit): "); string political_party = ......

Why won't my old x86 (32b) ASP .NET Applications work on my New x64 (64bit) Server?

I can't answer that question in detail, but I can say that on Windows 2003 servers under x64 you must explicitly set up IIS to Allow Web Service Extensions for ASP xxxxx (32) applications. In a console window, type: cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\adminscripts\... SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitA... 1 Then proceed with the following steps: Open IIS; Web Service Extensions Click on Allow All Web Service extensions for a specific application Choose ASP Net vX.Xxxxx (32) Click OK In a command window ......

How do I Configure Multiple Web Sites in IIS or How do I Add/Edit Host Headers?

You may need to map multiple web sites with the same port number or you may want to map an IP address that has been set to a netscaler vip/ip to multiple servers. IIS 6.0+ allows you to do that with a feature called Host Header Names. For the official details, review Microsoft's web site: http://support.microsoft.co... Here's how it works: Let's say you have a DNS entry called MetroDesignDev.LoadBalanced... @ ip address: 10.201.25.216 and one of the load balanced twins (ServerAlphaTwin) ......

How do I know how many processors my server is running with?

This would be a common question when trying to figure out licensing compliance in the corporate world!:-) Usually when folks are looking for information about processors, they're probably also interested in the number of cores too! Generally, the manufacturer--DELL, HP, etc. have managment tools on board that get you close--but the best tool out there that I know of for answering the "how many processors" and "how much core" question(s) is something called SIW (System Information for Hardware) . ......

What is an "event storm"?

Loosely stated, an event storm is a large number of warming, informational and error class occurrances on a given node (or array of nodes) over a relatively short period of time. Since these events must be detected and addressed to improve the health and reliability of any given system, a whole science and collection of supporting applications exist to best manage these occurrances. The best academic abstract/whitepaper I've seen on the topic comes from Mouayad Albaghdadi, Bruce Briley and Martha ......
