Instead of flipiping the switch in the GUI to tell IIS to use the Application Pool Identity for Anonymous authentication, I'd like to do this in a powershell script.

Scott Forsyth posted a solution which changes the default for all sites.

How can I do the same for a specific site only? With powershell ?


Found it:

Set-WebConfigurationProperty -filter /system.WebServer/security/authentication/AnonymousAuthentication -name username -value "" -location MyLocation

I simply used the site's name as MyLocation, andI had to reopen IIS Manager to see the change in the UI.
