Installing SQL 2005 SSRS on Windows 2008

First, don't ask me why. :( There was a need from vendor. Let's just leave it at that.

So run through your normal SQL 2005 install, the validation page throws up a warning "IIS not running". Since SSRS is a must on this machine, so let's Google Bing it. Following some results like this one:, run SQL 2005 install wizard again and got the same message. What the? Double check and everything works according to the blog.

After a short walk, I realized that "why would SQL 2005 know about IIS 7?" Now the focus is on searching to install IIS 6 on a Windows 2008 box. The trick was that "web server role" was needed for IIS 7, but IIS 6 requires an application server role install.
