Before you Import the Management Pack

Before you import the System Center Management Pack for Internet Information Services 10, note the following limitation of the management pack and perform the corresponding actions:

· Agentless monitoring is not supported. You must deploy an agent on every Internet Information Services (IIS) 10 server that you want to manage.

· Install the up-to-date version of Windows Server 2016 Base Operating System Management Pack.

Files in this Management Pack

The download package includes the following files:

· Microsoft.Windows.InternetInformationServices.2016.mp

· Microsoft.Windows.InternetInformationServices.CommonLibrary.mp

These files enable you to monitor IIS 10 (on Windows Server 2016). Note that the management pack guides that include information on IIS 5.0, IIS 6.0, IIS 7.0, IIS 8.0 and IIS 8.5 are separate from this guide.

This guide documents information specific to the Internet Information Services 10 Management Pack for Windows Server 2016.


Optional Configuration

Information about performance collection rules that are disabled by default in this management pack is provided in Appendix A. Since the action of collecting data about performance has a performance cost itself, enable only the performance collection rules that you care about.

Security Considerations

You may need to customize your management pack. Certain accounts cannot be run in a low-privilege environment or must have minimum permissions. If you operate in a low-privilege computing environment, you may need to elevate the level of permissions assigned to the accounts you use for running management pack rules, monitors, discoveries, recoveries, and diagnostic tasks. These accounts must have minimum permissions in order for management pack components to run properly.

Low-Privilege Environments

The System Center Management Pack for Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Internet Information Services 10 requires local administrator privileges to discover, monitor, and execute tasks. For the management pack discoveries, monitors, tasks, and diagnostics that require administrative privileges, the management pack uses the Privileged Management Run As profile, configured by default to use the Local System account.
