Can this be done without adding user to local Administrators group? All I need is to remotely stop app pool, create site and start the pool again. I'm trying to do this with Powershell script. I keep getting "A drive with the name 'IIS' does not exist."


You will need to use the 'Feature Delegation' or IIS Remote Management to enable users access to this without making them local admins.

  • No, you can setup local accounts inside of IIS for people so it is totally standalone. – 0x0000001E Apr 15 '15 at 13:19
