Configuring .NET Profiles in IIS 7
Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista
The .NET profile feature associates information with an individual user and stores the information in a persistent format. .NET profiles let you manage user information without requiring you to create and maintain your own database.
For information about the levels at which you can perform these procedures, and the modules, handlers, and permissions that are required for these procedures, see.NET Profile Feature Requirements (IIS 7).
