Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Middle Tier


ERROR: Could not read HTTPD.CONF or ADMINSERV.CONF file for retrieving the port number.  Error: NULL
When installing Middle Tier (XTier) to Windows 2003 server with Internet Information Services (IIS) not running properly.


This can occur if IIS service is not started properly on the Windows 2003 server.  Look at event log for IIS errors, and iisinfo.log for the ZENworks install error.
