When you use Microsoft FrontPage to create a new FrontPage Web that is a subweb of a Microsoft Internet Information Service (IIS) virtual directory that resides on an installable file system (IFS) drive, the creation of the new subweb may not be successful and you may receive the following error message:

Server Error: You can not convert a virtual directory into a subweb remotely. Ask your web server administrator or ISP to do this for you.


To work around this problem, create the subweb on an IIS virtual directory that resides on a file allocation table (FAT) or NTFS file system (NTFS) drive.


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