Creating a New FTP Site with Isolate Users Mode (IIS 6.0)
Isolate users mode authenticates users against local or domain accounts before they can access the home directory that matches their username. All user home directories are in a directory structure under a single FTP root directory where each user is placed and restricted to their home directory. Users are not permitted to navigate out of their home directory. If users need access to dedicated shared folders, you can also establish a virtual root. This mode does not authenticate against Active Directory directory service.
Important You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /user:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".
