Monitor Knowledgebase


This monitor checks the status of the IIS Admin service (IISADMIN). If you receive an alert from this monitor, action is required in order to bring the service back to an operational state.

Operational States:

The IIS Server service (IISADMIN) can be either in a "Service Running" or "Service Not Running" operational state.


A service can stop for many reasons, including:

  • The service was stopped by an administrator.

  • The service was prevented from starting because the user account could not be authenticated.

  • The service encountered an exception that stopped the service.

  • The service was improperly configured, which prevented it from starting.


If the IIS Server service (IISADMIN) is not running you can diagnose the issue or restart the service by taking the following actions:

  • Check for additional service-related alerts that might have occurred concurrently. These alerts might help better identify the reason why the service entered a stopped state.

  • Review the event logs on the managed computer, and correct any underlying problems that might have caused the service to stop unexpectedly.

  • Use the following Task to attempt to restart the service.

Start IIS Administration (IISADMIN) Service

The directory specified for caching compressed content is invalid
I got this error after adding this to my web.config file (Azure project)

    <mimeMap fileExtension=".svg" mimeType="image/svg+xml" />

(It results in a web.config error since SVG files are already present in applicationHost.config)

The error message is clearly misleading. I fixed the problem by reverting web.config to a previous version.

I made a short blogpost about it here: http://blog.degree.no/2013/04/the-directory-specified-for-caching-compressed-content-is-invalid-static-compression-is-being-disabled/

Where can i find the documentation ( Management Pack Inventory.xlsx) for IIS 6 , IIS 7 and IIS 7.5

I need to download that instead of IIS 8 as we are not running IIS 8.
