How to obtain IIS Metabase


In the course of the troubleshooting of a support case, a support engineer may request that you obtain the IIS Metabase.

In order to obtain the IIS metabase in Windows 2008 Server R2, simply get us the files administration.config and applicationHost.config which you can find at C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config .

In Windows 2003 Server, run the following command, in a command line:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\iiscnfg.vbs /export /f c:\iismetabase.xml /sp /lm/W3SVC /children /inherited

And get us the resulting c:\iismetabase.xml file.
