Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
A default installation of IIS 6.0 ensures metabase security by setting strict access control entries (ACEs) on the metabase files and by encrypting sensitive data within the files. If you maintain this level of security, perform regular backups, use a strong administrator password, and limit the number of users who have administrative credentials, you are taking the proper precautions to protect your metabase files.
