  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server

This article was previously published under Q246858


When you change the bindings of a Web site--that is, its Internet Protocol (IP) address and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port--but you do not first stop the Web site, Microsoft Management Console (MMC) does not warn you when your changes create a conflict with another Web site on the same server. As a result, two conflicting Web sites run. This occurs on a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.


To work around this behavior, stop the Web site before you change the TCP port or IP address. Then restart the Web site.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.


When you stop the Web site before you change its bindings, the MMC still does not warn you when you create a conflict, but you cannot start the conflicting site.
