IIS Error – The requested resource is in use

We use a program called SolarWinds to monitor our network usage and statistics. But lately, I’ve been getting “The requested resource is in use” while trying to view our network monitoring and statistics page. Not a very helpful message, thanks Microsoft…

This is on a Windows 2003 Server, so it uses IIS (Internet Information Server) and ASP (Active Server Pages) for its graphing and network overview features.

To fix this error, I just made a backup of the server’s configuration, uninstalled IIS, and then reinstalled. That fixed IIS, but SolarWinds couldn’t connect to the database anymore. I re-ran the configuration wizard that comes with SolarWinds, and everything came back.

I’m glad all of my pages are hosted with Apache on CentOS 4.
