Written by Scott Forsyth

But, what happens if you have multiple application pools running asrepparttar same user? For example, if you keep torepparttar 133382 default NETWORK SERVICE user but create multiple Application Pools, you may want to know which process belongs to which App Pool. Component Services doesn't work for this anymore.

Enough already, tell me how to do it!

Have no worries, Microsoft has given usrepparttar 133383 exact tool forrepparttar 133384 situation. IISApp.vbs lists allrepparttar 133385 applications, their PID and their App Pool name.

The script is already placed in systemrootsystem32 on Windows Server 2003 so simply go to your Command Prompt and type in iisapp.vbs (the .vbs is optional) and you'll have an instant list of allrepparttar 133386 App Pool information you've always wanted to know. You may need to type cscript iisapp.vbs if CScript isn't your default WSH script host.

Let's see an example ofrepparttar 133387 output:

W3WP.exe PID: 1468 AppPoolId: AppPoolForSite1.com W3WP.exe PID: 3056 AppPoolId: AppPoolForSite2.com W3WP.exe PID: 1316 AppPoolId: AppPoolForSite3.com

Direct fromrepparttar 133388 horse's mouth, Microsoft documents this:



We've seen here that using iisapp.vbs, you can painlessly match uprepparttar 133389 PID torepparttar 133390 friendly name ofrepparttar 133391 Application Pool.
