Automate site creation with "Connect As" Authorization settings

Dear all,

I'm using an automated site creation VBS that allows me to create site in IIS with:

1. proper Site Name
2. proper IP bindings and host name values (multiple, which is not available via iisweb script)
3. create folder and assign folder to IIS site.

This VBS is running perfectly, but now I need a new functionality which I've been unable to accomplish: note that I'm using a folder that is in a network share, with certain NTFS permissions. So, I need that script to allow me to add "Connect As" values/credentials, so that the site can access content from the share. Right now, I need to set that up manually - which is definitely not very wise in a some-hundred-website environment.

Perhaps some of you could help me tweak that VBS script or even suggest a whole new approach for me to automate this process.

Thanks in advance!
