I'm configuring IIS 7.5 website hosting several web services to never-shut-down. I understand that there is a setting in applicationHost.config to enable this
<applicationPools> <add name="AppPoolName" managedRuntimeVersion="v4.0" startMode="AlwaysRunning" /> ... </applicationPools>
However, I would like configure this in IIS Manager user interface, e.g. as an advanced setting of the application pool. Is there such a setting somewheere in IIS Manager?
If you want to extend the length of the time-out setting, just change it from the default of 20 to however many minutes you want. You can also adjust the setting to 0 (zero) which effectively disables the timeout so that the application pool will never shut down due to being idle.
However, I would like to know if I can set
startMode="AlwaysRunning" in GUI.
