I need help setting the properties of applicationPoolDefaults itself. 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?
That exactly right! for example:
Set-ItemProperty .\DefaultAppPool -Name queueLength -Value 2000
would double the value from 1000 to 2000.
I should add my PowerShell prompt was already in the IIS provider when I ran that.
I’d like to set applicationPoolDefaults not DefaultAppPool. The only way I can find is to use set-webconfigurationproperty.
set-webconfigurationproperty /system.applicationHost/applicationPools/applicationPoolDefaults/failure -name rapidFailProtectionMaxCrashes -value 10
I didn;t understand in your tweet that you wanted the AppPool defaults. You are correct! Nice job finding it!
Get-WebConfiguration -Filter system.applicationhost/applicationpools/applicationPoolDefaults
So, Get-/Set WebConfiguration and WebConfigurationProperty is way you would set those defaults.
Congrats and enjoy!
