Overview of ASP.NET Process Isolation (IIS 6.0)
When Microsoft ASP.NET is enabled on a server running Microsoft Windows Server-TM- 2003, by default it runs in the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 worker process isolation mode. Using worker process isolation mode enables application pooling, recycling, and various application health detection. However, if your application has compatibility problems in this mode, you can switch to run IIS 6.0 to IIS 5.0 isolation mode.
