Restore Corrupt or Missing metabase.xml

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!
