Setting up RMSv1 on Windows 2003 x64 – Feel the burn with me.

So I have as late been working on an issue involving someone trying to install RMS v1 on Windows 2003 x64 Standard Edition. Of course RMS v1 came in only a 32-bit flavor, but you could get it to run in WOW mode on x64 (With 2008 ADRMS comes in all the flavors of the OS). I don't know exactly why we are having issues (hopefully I'll figure it out this week), but I just went through a little test to make sure I'm not crazy ( know what I mean), and recorded it.

Here is the text of the file I was using in the demo:

1.) Make sure .NET 1.1, IIS and MSMQ are installed
2.) Allow IIS to run in WOW mode – cscript %SystemDrive%\inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set w3svc/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1
3.) Install and enable ASPNET – %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i -enable
4.) Allow ASP.NET 1.1 - cscript %systemroot%\system32\iisext.vbs /EnApp "ASP.NET v1.1.4322"
5.) Set default website version - %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe –s /w3svc/1/root

Here is the demo for your viewing pleasure. (Just unzip the files, and open the .html file)

P.S. I'll update this post with whatever I did to fix the 'problem' I ran into in the video. (Now you *have to* watch it or you won't know what I'm talking about.)

..and I already know 'I SHOULD HAVE USED A FQDN FOR THE CLUSTER URL!!' Don't judge me!!!
