Yes, this is possible. When you are installing the web adaptor it will pick up all of your web sites on the current server. You can choose which web site to install the web adaptor on. See step 3 in the following help document:
I did get to that point, however to my second point, do you know the properties I need to provide to create a new website in IIS? As you would be aware the default web site is linked to a virtual directory.
Can I add a folder that is empty e.g. c:\folderForIIS just so I can create a site, or do I need atleast an index.html?
I'm not an IIS expert, so extra information would be great.
OK - similar issue here - I used the Enterprise Builder wizard and it set up both Portal and Server Web Adaptor using the "default" IIS site, I didn't get the options you do when you set the Web Adaptor up on its own - I had already started using the default site for my internal JS mapping site.
Ideally I want the Web Adaptors to be on their own IIS site, I thought I could just rename the IIS site it had used (I had renamed it to be "emap" the name of our internal system) - the I could move my mapping site to another IIS site - not too big an issue as we are still in dev for this server.
Yet renaming the IIS site broke the adaptors - somewhere it must store the IIS site name. Any ideas?
