Internet Information Service - Configuration
In case EM and WSUS run on the same system, you must perform some modifications that affect the whole IIS.
We therefore recommend that you install WSUS and EM on separate servers, due to the use of the "DynamicCompression" module, which is activated globally on IIS through WSUS server installation. The following command can be used to determine whether dynamic compression has been enabled.
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe list config -section:system.webServer/httpCompression
After entering the command, the status is displayed in the following output line:
doDynamicCompression="true" dll="C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\suscomp.dll" stat
In case you want to run the components on the same server, you can disable dynamic compression as follows. No restart is required!
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/httpCompression /-[name='xpress']
To enable compression again, please use the following command:
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/httpCompression /+[name='xpress',doStaticCompression='false',dll='%windir%\system32\inetsrv\suscomp.dll']
