I cannot find this object under IIS:\AppPools and I would like to see if can use command Set-ItemProperty like in the following command. Set-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\DefaultAppPool -Name queueLength -Value 10000 Is there any other way to do it other than using set-webconfigurationproperty command? Thank you!

The only way I can find is to use set-webconfigurationproperty. set-webconfigurationproperty /system.applicationHost/applicationPools/applicationPoolDefaults/failure -name rapidFailProtectionMaxCrashes -value 10 Thank you!

Get-WebConfiguration -Filter system.applicationhost/applicationpools/applicationPoolDefaults So, Get-/Set WebConfiguration and WebConfigurationProperty is way you would set those defaults. Congrats and enjoy! Cheers January 28, 2014 at 5:53 am #12772 Vern AndersonParticipant I should add my PowerShell prompt was already in the IIS provider when I ran that. Set-Location iis: Set-Location AppPools PS IIS:\AppPools\> Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
