I have been working on a script to map IIS Sites to a different App Pool.
This works when the object is a Site:
Set-ItemProperty -Path "IIS:\Sites\Sitename" -Name ApplicationPool -Value "NewPool"
However, if the object is an Application under a Site, this runs without an error, but the value does not change.
I've tried using a "Set-Item" on the Application object, but that errors out.
use the appcmd command
appcmd set app /app.name: string /applicationPool: string
I have also seen on other sites where it is stated that "applicationPool" appears to be case sensitive.
so instead of doing
Set-ItemProperty -Path "IIS:\Sites\Sitename\app" -Name ApplicationPool -Value "NewPool"
Set-ItemProperty -Path "IIS:\Sites\Sitename\app" -Name applicationPool -Value "NewPool"
Thanks for the help Curtis. The second option, changing he case, doesn't appear to work.
The appcmd option works. However, I have run in to a problem with it – it requires the powershell session to be run as administrator.
Any suggestions how I can do that using a remote Invoke-Command?
