HTTP Error 500.19 on SBS 2008
Today I was investigating problems with a friends SBS 2008 server.Â It suddenly had decided to give a HTTP Error 500.19 â€“ Internal Server Error to every single website on it including Remote Web Workplace, OWA and even Sharepoint was dead.Â Given that all these apps were dead, I even tried to access the iisstart.htm page that is installed by default on the default website â€“ not even that worked as you can see in the screenshot below.Â Something was really broken on this server.
After asking all my SBS MVP buddies and not getting a solution, I turned to the place of all knowledgeâ€¦ the SBS CSS team in Las Colinas, Texas.Â Damian from the team responded quickly and suggested â€śeither the Application pools set to 32-bit True or missing suscomp.dll from \windows\system32\inetsrvâ€ť.
I checked the SBS Application Pool under IIS Manager and the â€śEnable 32-bit applicationsâ€ť was set to False â€“ that meant that these app pools were â€śnormalâ€ť
I next checked out the \windows\system32\inetsrv folder and sure enough suscomp.dll was missing.Â I then copied it from another SBS 2008 server and did an IISRESET to restart IIS and everything works once more.Â Thanks Damian!
Now the quandryâ€¦ what has happened on this server so that the suscomp.dll is missingâ€¦ thatâ€™s the next thing I need to figure out.
UPDATE Dec 9th – I found the source of the problem – documented here
