Active Directory Services cannot find the web server

Hello Everyone,
I am hoping someone could help me out with this.I am using Visual
Studio .NET 2003 to create a web application on a remote IIS 5.0
server using the File Share web access method.The problem is I get the
following two errors everytime I try to create the application:

Error 1:
The web was created successfully, but an error occured trying to
configure the application root of this web.Web projects may not
operate correctly without an application root.The returned error
was"Active Directory Services cannot find the web server.A possible
cause of this is an incompatibility between versions of Internet
Information Server(IIS) on the client and the server.The usual cause
for this error is creating web projects on a windows 2000 or newer
server from a windows NT 4.0 client.
You can manually configure the application using the Internet Services
Manager.

Error 2:
Unable to set the permissions on the 'bin' folder to restrict browse
access.Active Directory Services cannot find the web server.A possible
cause of this is an incompatibility between versions of Internet
Information Server(IIS) on the client and the server.The usual cause
for this error is creating web projects on a windows 2000 or newer
server from a windows NT 4.0 client.
You can manually configure the application using the Internet Services
Manager.

Now I have read the article related to these errors on microsoft at
this address:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=320451

And true to its word,the solution that the article suggests resolves
the above mentioned errors i.e. If I install IIS on the client
machine,the errors are eliminated.But, we don't want to install IIS on
all the client machines which will be used to create a web application
on the remote server.We feel there is a security issue with doing
this.Is there any way to get around the above mentioned errors without
having to install IIS on all the client machines? I would really
appreciate it if someone could help me out with this.Thanks in
advance,do reply.

Amol.

We have just installed a SQL Server 2000 (SP 3A) onto a computer that has Windows-2003 Server on it. Now, we cannot get access to that database server from other computers.

We also have SQL Server 2000 (SP2) in three Windows-2000 servers. All work fine. Recently, we get a...

My goal, somehow, is to populate a dropdownlist with all the user names in active directory. I don't even know where to begin, really. I added a reference to System.DirectoryServices so I could use the System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory namespace. I don't even know if this is the right way to go as I can't seem to find anything in that namespace that would help me query active directory for names. I can't use an LDAP query...

I am trying to create a simple AD search page where any of my co workers can input and name and get in return phone numbers. I don't need anything fancy, since most of the internal site has already been created using Microsoft expressions, and with the standard items in IIS. I know this question has been asked but every search through google has not been able to provide me with the coding I want to inject into the web site.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
