IIS and Exchange

Some of the most powerful applications for ADSI scripting are in the management of Internet Information Services and Microsoft Exchange. For managers of small to mid-size networks, maintaining the comings and goings of multiple Web sites and users can be a tedious job. ADSI scripting can give you a way of adding users or sites by typing one line at the command prompt; if you've ever spent 20 minutes poking at the IIS Manager, the Users and Groups Manager, and Windows Explorer to add one new server, you know what an improvement this would be.

However, it would take several chapters this size or larger just to delve into IIS management, and there simply isn't room to do that in this book. If you become familiar with the material in this chapter and gain experience writing scripts to manage user accounts and services, you'll find that extending your skills to manage IIS and Exchange will be a snap. The ADSI learning curve is steep, but it levels out fairly quickly. I'll show you where to get more information at the end of the chapter.
