Configuring User Accounts to Connect to Sites and Applications in IIS Manager (IIS 7)

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

Create IIS Manager user accounts or Windows user accounts when you want to allow non-administrators to configure delegated features in sites and applications on your Web server.

To enable users to connect to the Web server by using IIS Manager, you must do the following:

  • Add an IIS Manager user account in IIS Manager or add a new Windows user to your server. For more information about how to configure IIS Manager user accounts, see Configuring IIS Manager Users (IIS 7).

  • Permit a user or users to connect to a specific site or application in IIS Manager. For more information about permitting users to connect to sites and applications, see Configuring Permissions for IIS Manager Users and Windows Users (IIS 7).

  • Configure the management service to accept remote connections, and specify whether the server accepts connections from Windows user accounts only or from both Windows user accounts and IIS Manager user accounts. For more information about how to configure the management service, see Configuring the Management Service in IIS 7.
