Modules Page

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use the Modules feature page to manage a list of native and managed code modules that perform specific tasks in the request-processing pipeline, such as authentication or compression.

Sort the list by clicking one of the feature page column headings or select a value from the Group by drop-down list to group similar items.

UI Element List

The following tables describe the UI elements that are available on the feature page and in the Actions pane.

Feature Page Elements

 

Element Name Description

Name

Displays the name of the module.

Code

Displays the physical path of the native code file (.dll) or of the type in the managed library.

Module Type

Displays whether the module is implemented with native code or managed code. The value is either Native or Managed.

Actions Pane Elements

 

Element Name Description

Add Managed Module

Opens the Add Managed Module dialog box from which you can add a managed module.

Configure Native Module

Opens the Configure Native Module dialog box from which you can enable native modules by adding them to the list of modules. At the server level, you can also register, edit registration, and remove registration for native modules.

Edit

Opens the Edit Managed Module or Edit Native Module Registration dialog box from which you can edit the selected module.

noteNote
The ability to edit the registration of a native module is available only at the server level.

Lock

Locks the module so it cannot be overridden at lower levels in configuration.

noteNote
  This action is available only at the server level.

Unlock

Unlocks the module so it can be overridden at lower levels in configuration.

noteNote
This action is available only at the server level.

Remove

Removes the item that is selected from the list on the feature page. When a managed module is selected, the module is removed from the Web server. When a native module is selected, the module is removed from the list of modules, which disables the module. However, it is still registered on the Web server. To remove the registration of a native module, click Configure Native Modules, select a module, and then click Remove.

noteNote
The ability to remove the registration of a native module is available only at the server level.

You can remove more than one module at a time by pressing the CTRL key when selecting each module that you want to remove.

Revert to Inherited

Reverts the feature to inherit settings from the parent configuration. This deletes local configuration settings, including items from the list, for this feature. This action is not available at the server level.

View Ordered List

Displays the list in order of configuration. When you select the ordered list format, you can only move items up and down in the list. Other actions in the Actions pane do not appear until you select the unordered list format.

Move Up

Moves a selected item up in the list. This action is available only when viewing items in the ordered list format.

noteNote
When items in the list are reordered at a child level, the child will no longer inherit settings from the parent level (including any items that are added to or removed from the list at the parent level) after the list is reordered. If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.

Move Down

Moves a selected item down in the list. This action is available only when viewing items in the ordered list format.

noteNote
When items in the list are reordered at a child level, the child will no longer inherit settings from the parent level (including any items that are added to or removed from the list at the parent level) after the list is reordered. If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.

View Unordered List

Displays the list in an unordered format. When you select the unordered list format, you can sort and group items in the list, and perform actions in the Actions pane.
