Recycling the application pool:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms525262%28v=vs.90%29.aspx

For example:
# Just an example name
$AppPool = "v4.0 Classic"

Get-WmiObject IIsApplicationPool -Namespace root/MicrosoftIISv2 -Filter "Name LIKE '%AppPool%'" | ForEach-Object { $_.Recycle() }

Open in new window

There's no return code, so you'll have to check the event log to ensure it's recycled if you don't trust it.

As for setting up the app pool, you should be able to edit that through both ADSI or WMI (AppPoolID property). Which are you using to create everything so far?

Setting the .NET version involves modifying the scriptMaps property in the metabase. The approach there is likely to depend on the answer to the question above.

Cheers,

Chris
