Have you tried disabling the Serv U FTP server service?

Have you updated for the msblast issue?

Dear All

Grateful for any thoughts. Win 2k sp4, e2k sp3

I can no longer configure iis. I get an "error connecting to.... The
system cannot find the path specified etc"  or I get "unable to connect
to target machine". I've even had "access denied".

I've tried reinstalling IIS to no avail. I think there is an RPC problem
at the root of this as the RPC service eventually unexpectedly
stops.(7031 error)

I also  get a couple of nasty errors when I try to reinstall Exchange.
The install log gives me an Access denied error(0x80070005) when trying
to write IIS Metabase objects for the information store.

The first error I have is a 116 error "the service metabase path
/LM/MSFTPSVC could not be opened" , then a 7023 FTP publishing can't
find the path specified, then the exchange routing engine terminates
"cannot find specified path". 18 mins or so later the RPC service
unexpectedly quits.

I'm sorry if I sound a bit vague here. I've tried KB and the web but I'm
not exactly sure anymore (was I ever?) what is causing the problem and
everything I've tried gets me no further ahead.

Metaedit tells me that it can't connect to the LOCALHOST.
Could this be something with DNS?
I'm not exactly new to Exchange 2000, I merely feel like it everytime I
get this sort of grief.

Thanks for any input.
