Problem Description: My first attempt to use the lockdown installer failed with some errors, so I uninstalled IIS and CF to try again. However this time I get an error from appcmd with: The BACKUP object with identifier "LockDownBackup" already exists.

Maybe the LockdownInstaller should create a backup with a date time stamp eg LockdownBackup-2018-04-18-13-22 then you could restore to various points in time if you have issues.

Steps to Reproduce: Install IIS / CF run Lockdown Installer, then uninstall everything and reinstall.

Actual Result: The BACKUP object with identifier "LockDownBackup" already exists.

Expected Result: Expect to be able to run it again.

Any Workarounds: Not sure.



Hi Pete, Even if you see this issue, it shouldn't effect the workflow of lockdown. In fact this backup is not even used while rollback or uninstall of lockdown. Can you please check if some other error was seen? Meanwhile, I will be completely removing this backup. Thanks, Kailash
