Hi!


I need some VB code to be able to extract from my IIS metabase the web site descriptions. Currently I am using the IIsWebVirtualDirSetting class. I can't seem to find the website description property. The end goal is to iterate trough all my sites on the local server and find all the web site descriptions AS DISPLAYED IN THE IIS WEB SITE PROPERTIES, WEB SITE TAB, DESCRIPTION field.

Thanks!

        blnStop = False

        Dim wmiService As Object, strComputer As String, locatorObj As Object
        strComputer = "."
 
        locatorObj = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
        wmiService = locatorObj.ConnectServer(strComputer, "root/MicrosoftIISv2")
 
        Dim applicationPools As Object
 
        applicationPools = wmiService.ExecQuery("Select * From IIsApplicationPool " & _
            "Where Name LIKE 'W3SVC/AppPools/%'")
 
 
 
        'Sites
        Dim wmiSites As Object
 
        wmiSites = wmiService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM IIsWebVirtualDirSetting") ', , 48)
 
        Dim objItem As Object
        For Each objItem In wmiSites

Try this code.
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\MicrosoftIISv2") 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM IIsWebServerSetting") 
For Each objItem in colItems 
   MsgBox "ServerComment: " & objItem.ServerComment
