WAMUserPass Metabase Property (IIS 6.0)
The WAMUserPass property specifies the password for the account that IIS uses by default as the COM+ application identity for newly created IIS out-of-process applications. The values of this property and its companion property, WAMUserName, are set when IIS is installed, and match the password and user name values in the Microsoft Windows user account (IWAM_MachineName, where MachineName is the name of the machine on which IIS is installed) established at the same time.
Changing the value of this property is not recommended. If you do, you must change the Windows account password to the identical value. You must also synchronize existing IIS out-of-process application identities, using Component Services to edit the user name and password values, which are found on the Identity tab of the property sheet for each package.
In-process applications are not affected by these property values.
You can configure this property at the following locations in the IIS metabase.
