IIS 6.0 and Windows Server 2003 provide several tools to help you administer your servers. This section provides the following task-based information:

  • Administering Servers from the Command Line: Describes how to use the following powerful scripting and programming tools to access and configure settings.

    • Supported command-line scripts. Supplied scripts for the IIS Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider to manage and set IIS metabase configurations.

    • Adsutil.vbs IIS administration utility. Uses VBScript and Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) as a learning tool to manipulate the IIS configuration.

  • Administering Servers Remotely: Describes how to use the following tools to remotely administer your sites.

    • IIS Manager. Remotely connect to and administer an intranet server.

    • Terminal Services. After you use Terminal Services to connect to the server that is running IIS, you can use IIS Manger on the Web server as if you were logged on locally.

    • Remote Administration (HTML) tools. Administer your IIS Web server from Web browsers on your intranet.

    • Supported command-line scripts. Use with the IIS WMI provider to remotely manage an IIS machine. Each command-line script supports the /s parameter, which you can use to specify the remote server against which you want to perform the command.
