IIS Scripting API for Programmatic Administration
This section describes the scripting interfaces that are included with IIS that allow an application to configure metabase properties and nodes and to manage applications from ASP or command-line scripts written in a COM-compliant scripting language such as Microsoft VBScript or JScript.
The scripting APIs can only be run under the credentials of a server administrator. For additional information, see "Programmatic Administration" in Version Differences in IIS Administration Features.
For more information about the other administration features of IIS, see Comparison of IIS Administration Features.
This section includes the following topics:
Describes the hierarchy of admin objects that is used by WMI and Active Directory® Service Interfaces (ADSI) to reference configurable locations in the metabase.
Describes the classes and methods of the IIS ADSI provider that are used to programmatically configure an IIS server. Each topic includes ADSI container information, the ADsPath for the object, the metabase properties that are accessible to the object, and any additional methods that are specific to the object.
Describes the classes and methods of the IIS WMI provider that are used to programmatically configure an IIS server.
The IIS WMI provider is not available for IIS 5.1 and earlier.
