Administering Servers from the Command Line in IIS 6.0 (IIS 6.0)

Each system on your computer comes with a graphical user interface (GUI), such as IIS Manager, to configure and manage your settings. However, if administrators manage systems frequently, or access large amounts of data on multiple servers, then using each GUI is time consuming. It may be faster to use command-line scripts that can manage single or multiple systems programmatically.

IIS provides powerful scripting and programming tools that you can use to access and configure settings from within a command-line script or compiled application. You can use these tools to create, delete, start, stop, pause, and list various sites and applications, and to copy, import, and export configurations.

You can use command-line scripts for the following:
