I need to set the Physical path Credentials for a Website in IIS7 using Powershell.

I can get my powershell code to run without error but it never changes the actual credentials. Even after an IISRESET. I need advice on how to set the Physical Path Crednetials for a site using powershell.

Here is what I've tried :
Attempt #1 :
---------------
import-module webadministration
Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\Sites\MyWeb" -Name virtualDirectoryDefaults.username -Value "domain\username"
Set-ItemProperty "IIS:\Sites\MyWeb" -Name virtualDirectoryDefaults.password -Value "Mypassword"
---------------

Attempt #2
---------------
import-module webadministration
$website = get-item "IIS:\sites\MyWeb"
$website.virtualDirectoryDefaults.userName = "domain\username"
$website.virtualDirectoryDefaults.password = "Mypassword"
$website | set-item
