absolute list of scenarios when an iisreset is require in IIS6?

Post by Danie » Fri, 10 Oct 2003 08:13:16


Hi there,
Just wanting to have someone clarified for me this "edit-
while-running" feature in IIS6.

So far, I have read that if you have "edit-while-running'
enabled. The administrator can just update the
metabase.xml or other configuration without requiring a
restart of IIS. These articles say there are exceptions as
well. But they never mention what these other settings and
exceptions are.

Are there any sites out there that already have a definite
list? Otherwise, can someone let me know what changes in
the web.config file/properties dialog box/aspx pages
require a restart? e.g.
authenication...

Thanks in advanced

Hi Daniel,

Very good question!

Generally speaking, you can test this in the IIS6 mmc. Any setting in IIS6
mmc which we should restart the IIS6 is the same setting in metabase.xml
which needs a restart of IIS.

So far as I konw, there seems not to exist a list for the restart element
for the web.config of asp.net.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions.

Does this answer your question? Thank you for using Microsoft NewsGroup!

Umm... A list will be helpful. Maybe MS can consider
publishing a reference on msdn/technet. But, anyhow,
thanks for your reply. At least now I know I will need to
test it out myseif.

Cheers,

Hi Daniel,

I'd suggest the key "W3svc/IIs5IsolationModeEnabled" of metabase will need
one restart of IIS which is located in the service tab of site property
from the IIS mmc.

That being said, most application pool properties require that the app pool
itself be restarted. When an admin changes an app pool property, IIS will
restart the app pool (and corresponding worker process) automatically. If
they do not wish for this to happen, they need to set
disallowrotationonconfigchange to true for that app pool only. Doing so
means that any change to the properties of an application pool will not
take affect until the admin recycles that app pool himself. In normal
situations, there should be no need to change this property. The
auto-recycle of an app pool happens so fast that there should be no loss in
service for any users.

Furthermore, I'd suggest you can use IIS metabase explorer to check the
metabase which can be obtained from IIS6 resource kit. Please go to:
