Installing IIS 4 on NT 4.0

By LabRaT ·
I just built up a new server on the NT 4.0 platform, all current patches and hot fixes. I installed IIS 3 from the installation disk and reinstalled the SP6a update. I then tried to install Echange 5.5 but to instal OWA I had to upgrade to IIS 4 first. I found the Option Pack for IIS 4 in my TechNet subscription and tried to install it. It crashed several services. I reinstalled everything from the ground up and the IIS 4 installation crashed again. To get the server running again, I wound up re-installing IIS 3 over the 4. Just to get my email running, I installed Exchange without OWA.

I can't find IIS 4 upgrade/installation on the Microsoft site. The TechNet Option Pack installation doesn't work. Where can I find a solid upgrade set for IIS 3 to 4 installation? I really need OWA on the server. Are there any alternatives to installing IIS 4?

Thanks for trying. This link returns a 404 Page Not Found. Installing from the Option Pack crashes my new installation of NT and IIS 3. While writing this, I began to wonder if I should not install IIS 3 from the NT installation CD. I was thinking that the Option Pack would upgrade the IIS 3 up to 4. Is this incorrect? Do a ground up install of NT 4.0 only, patch it, then install the Option Pack IIS 4? Any thoughts?

Srikrishna--Ifound that the link as shown in the Answer had a space in the word deployment. I found the web site you specified. I am re-evaluating you answer. Reply again so I can rate this answer fully after I complete my reading.

Hi
You neednot install IIS 3 to install IIS 4. You can directly install IIS 4. Install the latest browser (Internet Explorer) and then install IIS4 from the NT Option Pack. Then apply latest ServicePack and all the updates and patches.
Thanks and Best of Luck.

Sorry,
Also apply the Service Pack before installing IIS 4. Then while installing Option Pack if you are asked to keep newer files keep it. Then apply the patches, updates, etc. Even apply the post 6a updates for securing your IIS against attacks.
Thanks
