IIS is a powerful web platform, and since version 7.0 everything, absolutely everything, is backed by a schema. This defines the settings, defaults and value ranges that IIS uses.
This means that tools can use it to ensure that they are 100% complete in the IIS settings and that they can perform validation that doesn’t get out of date over time. And administrators can use the schema as a treasure chest of information to understand IIS better.
This week I show the schema and walk through a few settings to introduce you to this core aspect of IIS.
This is week 19 of a 52 week Web Pro series on various web administration related tasks. Past and future videos can be found here.
