Types of Metabase Properties
The isolation mode that is configured for your IIS application affects the way some properties behave, as described below.
Application-level properties, when set, apply to the entire application regardless of the isolation mode in which your IIS server is running. Setting an application-level property in one location does not affect the entire application pool (see individual property topics for exceptions).
The following properties are application-level properties:
Process-level properties only have an effect on IIS behavior if they are set at the service level (for both isolation modes), or at the server level (for IIS 5.0 isolation mode, if the application is set to High isolation).
IIS 5.1 and earlier: Process-level properties only have an effect on IIS behavior if they are set at the server level and if the application is set to High isolation.
The property pages might list other locations where IIS allows you to set these properties, but they have no effect on IIS behavior.
The following properties are process-level properties:
