Delete &Recreate Virtual Dir IIS 4.0

By qultptry ·
HELP ASAP. Have a virtual web under default, named intranet. I have deleted and re-added a new virtual directory, giving it the same name "intranet" and it assigns lrintranet2, because it says another name already exists? How do I really get rid of the old name?

Delete &Recreate Virtual Dir IIS 4.0

I don't think I've encountered this particular problem, but I've seen a few similar behaviours in IIS and NT. After deleting the virtual dir, you could try stopping and restarting the web service, or if that fails rebooting the server. That may be sufficient to clear the entry that's persisting.

Otherwise it will probably a case of editing the metabase, which I haven't done. If the change isn't being picked up from the both the HTML nor MMC IIS admin tool, you may wish to try the Metaedit utility from the IIS Resource Kit.

I haven't used it however so I can't advise on how to make the deletion.
