Is it possible to allow a user (or group of users) permission to view and edit websites settings using the IIS Manager snap-in without giving them administrative privileges on the Windows 2003 server? Ideally it would be nice to give that user/group permission to only selected websites and/or application pools.
This feature doesn't exist in Windows 2003/IIS6. There is an option that is not supported by Microsoft though: http://www.winserverkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/iis-security/2147/HowTo-manage-IIS-via-MMC-SnapIn-without-admin-rights
Windows 2008/IIS7 supports admin delegation out of the box.
