We are using ARR as reverse proxy and I would like to make a server unavailable for various reasons. How can this be done using Powershell?

Edit 1:
I found this tutorial for using JScript. But I'm not able to translate it to powershell.

Edit 2:
Using the Set-WebConfigurationProperty in WebAdministration module I'm able to changes settings for a server. I found SetState in %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\arr_schema.xml but I don't know how to invoke that method.
