When initially starting the Web Administration Console, the server returns a 500.19 internal server error.



This is caused by installing .NET before installing IIS.  IIS hasn't registered .NET because of the order of installation.



Run C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

    This article led me in the right direction. The problem I found is that on the Enterprise Windows 2008 R2 server I did not have this command available to run.

    I went to my .net 4.0 installer and did a repair. I then had to reboot and it worked great. Thanks for the article.
