IIS restore

I have an IIS server which hosts multiple sites. I am trying to restore the settings from Metabase, how long is normal wait? it's been 30 minutes and there's no indication whether it's actually restoring or frozen. I am hesitant to cancel it, cause I may end up with a corrupted IIS.

What do you think?

It can take that long.  I think I've waited up to 2 hours for a big metabase.

Oh the simplicity of httpd.conf in Apache.

My understanding is IIS 6 basically goes to a text (xml) file for configuration.

Yep.  And changes can be made with no restart of the service.

I don't know much about other web servers, so maybe IIS is just catching up.  But for me,  It's really quite slick.
