I faced an error during Ax installation on selecting “Web service on IIS” option in the set up- “The IIS Web server in Windows Server is required for Microsoft Dynamics Ax components that use a web site”
Though all the components mentioned in the error message were already available for Web Server role, the issue still exists.
So what is the solution ?
Simple!!! Remove the role and install again.
Administrative tools -> Server manager -> IIS and select Remove Role or Feature
This takes some time to do this action . Do select the option to reboot the server.
Then Log on to Server Manager -> DashBoard and select “Add Roles and feature” from “Configure this local server”
Select all the necessary features mentioned in the error message and complete the set up.
Now run the Ax set up again with Web service option . You will not face this error again
Happy Installing … 🙂
