Did you reboot your Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 and now it takes FOREVER to reboot? Like 10 hours it gets stuck on “Applying Computer Settings” ? Or perhaps you lost power to the machine and had to reboot & its takes forever to boot up and or login? You probably have a corrupted or missing metabase. To fix, boot to Safe Mode (Press F8 during boot) Open your file manager and backup the following files: c:WindowsSystem32InetsrvMBSchema.xml c:WindowsSystem32InetsrvMetaBase.xml Now go to c:WindowsSystem32InetsrvHistory and restore recent copies back to c:WindowsSystem32Inetsrv Reboot your machine and you should be good to go!
