Installing IIS on Win Server 2003 without the installation CD? - Server Fault


The title says most of it.

I have a VM running Windows Server 2003. While setting it up, I didn't install IIS. Now I need it and the installation ISO I installed from is on another machine that I don't currently have access to. I know the installation is traditionally done by using add/remove windows components (msdn), which are prompting me for the CD. Any ideas on how to get around this? Is there a standalone installer anywhere?

    There is no standalone installer - you will need the files from the installation CD. As GateKiller pointed out, they can be on the network or a drive, but without the Installation CD, you have a problem.

    My only suggestion: Try the Trial Version ISO, but that is at your own risk:

    And when you are prompted for the file location you can point to the equivalent file on another server that already has IIS on it

    \\myotherserver\c$\windows\system32\ and so on

    While using add/remove windows components, the dialog should ask you the location of the files which you could enter a location on the local disk or network location.
