Can someone provide a sample script that can be run by a windows scheduled task that will change the authentication method of an IIS 6.0/7.0 web site from digest authentication to windows authentication (and then back again at a later time)?

You can make a directory that is only accessible by an authenticated user and direct the user there when you want them to use IWA and one that is a digest authentication.. your landing page will direct the user to whichever you need behind the scenes.
Landing.aspx directs to
/IWA/login.aspx --(don't allow anonymous users to access this page in IIS)

Good idea, but I was looking to do this using a WMI ?? command in a scripting tool, without re-configuring or duplicating the site at all.  My site doesn't have a login page.
