Question:how to Document and Audit IIS Server Configuration?

XIA Configuration automatically documents your IIS server configuration on Windows Server 2003 (IIS 6), Windows Server 2008 (IIS 7) and Windows Server 2008 R2 (IIS 7.5) including Web Sites, Application Pools and Applications configured within the IIS Server.

The following are a few examples of how XIA Configuration's IIS module is in use by customers today:

    Locate which user accounts are being used to run application pools
