Quick Tips

IIS Reset

Starting with Windows 2000, there's an easy way to reset IIS. No longer do you need to issue endless net stop and net start commands to cycle all the services. IISReset to the rescue. Instead of me rambling on about how great it is I'll simply leave you with text from the help screen:

IISRESET.EXE (c) Microsoft Corp. 1998-1999
iisreset [computername]
 /RESTART          Stop and then restart all Internet services.
 /START            Start all Internet services.
 /STOP             Stop all Internet services.
 /REBOOT           Reboot the computer.
 /REBOOTONERROR    Reboot the computer if an error occurs when starting,
                   stopping, or restarting Internet services.
 /NOFORCE          Do not forcefully terminate Internet services if
                   attempting to stop them gracefully fails.
 /TIMEOUT:val      Specify the timeout value ( in seconds ) to wait for
                   a successful stop of Internet services. On expiration
                   of this timeout the computer can be rebooted if
                   the /REBOOTONERROR parameter is specified.
                   The default value is 20s for restart, 60s for stop,
                   and 0s for reboot.
 /STATUS           Display the status of all Internet services.
 /ENABLE           Enable restarting of Internet Services
                   on the local system.
 /DISABLE          Disable restarting of Internet Services
                   on the local system.

And no you're not halluinating... that was a computer name on the command line. It works on remote machines too so you don't even have to walk all the way across your office to your web server!
