When you scan a Microsoft IIS server the scan fails with the error "Could not obtain the IIS 7 Configuration Section 'sectionname'". On viewing the full exception, the COMException code returned from IIS is 0x8007000D.


This can be caused by services being configured within the Web.config file that are not available or installed on the IIS Web Server.


  • Modify the Web.config file to only include valid directives for services that are installed on the IIS server


  • Within the XIA Configuration Client, modify the IIS agent settings and enable the "Web.Config" setting on the tolerance tab.
