Management Service

Updated: February 29, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2



Use the Management Service feature page to configure the management service for IIS Manager. The management service enables computer and domain administrators to remotely manage a web server that uses IIS Manager. The service also enables nonadministrative users to locally and remotely manage delegated features of sites and applications on a web server that uses IIS Manager.

noteNote
Only administrators who use IIS Manager on the local computer can configure the management service.
