Using script below  I am trying to change the anon user  for IIS 6 2003 Srv from IUSR_<machinename> to a local user I created.   I get no errors, however when I check default web site  with IIS mmc gui the anon user  does not change.   When I view anon user with adsutil  it  shows  it did change.   Anyone have idea  what I am doing wrong?  Thanks.

service_account_name = "svcacct"
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
strComputer = objNetwork.ComputerName
'set IIS anon account
wscript.echo "Setting IIS account"
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
strRun1 = "cscript.exe C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set w3svc/anonymoususername " & strComputer &"\"& service_account_name
strRun2 = "cscript.exe C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set w3svc/anonymoususerpass " &  service_account_name
wscript.echo strRun1
wscript.echo strRun2
objShell.Run strRun1, 1, True
objShell.Run strRun2, 1, True

I noticed  that the user  I am setting  was  on "Web Sites" so I used the identifier  for the Default Web site being "1"  as in ..."set w3svc/1/anonymoususername"  but stuill does not seem to change the Default Web Site anon user/pw.

try "set w3svc/1/root/anonymoususername"  and "set w3svc/1/root/anonymoususerpass"

Sorry Si Shamil,   It look promising  but  it  did not change the anonymous user for "Default Web Site"  under "Web Sites" of IIS.
