Disable Application Pool IIS 6.0

rkneal used Ask the Experts™
I have a website in IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 Server I wish to disable but don't want to completely remove it.  I have read that if you stop the application pool that it will not be restarted unless someone manually starts it, even if the server is rebooted.  Is this true?  If not how can I disable the website without completely removing it from IIS?

Yes it is true that if you stop an application pool it won't be restarted on reboot of the server, you have to explicitly start it again.
