Optional Parameters

-Clr

Specifies the version of the .NET Framework in the form vn.n, such as v4.0 or v2.0. The default is v4.0. Specify this parameter only when the PSPath parameter is set to either Machine or Machine/Webroot. If PSPath is not set to one of these values and the Clr parameter is set, Windows PowerShell® ignores the value of Clr and returns a warning.

-Location

Specifies the location of the configuration setting. Location tags are frequently used for configuration settings that must be set more precisely than per application or per virtual directory. For example, a setting for a particular file or directory could use a location tag. Location tags are also used if a particular section is locked. In such an instance, the configuration system would have to use a location tag in one of the parent configuration files.

Type:String[]

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)

-PSPath

Specifies the configuration path. This path can be either an IIS configuration path in the format computer name/webroot/apphost, or the IIS module path in the format IIS:\sites\Default Web Site.
